Bobby Byrne's Bar

One of Limerick’s best-known sporting pubs, Bobby Byrne’s recently celebrated 50 years in business. Opened in 1963 by the original Bobby and his wife Helen, it quickly became a great supporter of local teams, particularly rugby. Operated since 2003 by son Robert and family, it has undergone major refurbishment without losing its original character.


With breakfast beginning at 8.30am, food is served throughout the day. A carvery lunch from noon offers tradional options like roast turkey and ham or slow-braised beef steaks with onion and mushroom gravy.


Local suppliers including Adare Farm and Rene Cusack fishmongers feature on menus that offer an extensive choice, with an emphasis on fish. Starters include seafood chowder, salmon and potato cakes and smoked salmon and prawns, while fish mains are grilled salmon, fish and chips and a succulent seafood pie full of fish with a light, crispy puff pastry topping.


Meat lovers are also well catered for and many come here especially for the steaks, or you could try the sloppy steak sandwich (an unusual variation on the usual steak sandwich, with the meat slivered and bound in a pepper sauce, served in a toasted soft roll with chips and salad), lamb chilli wrap, or Bobby’s ultimate burger: 8 oz of Irish beef with a secret sauce.


For dessert, you might enjoy Bobby’s Bushmills trifle, Baileys truffle cake or the house crumble.


While the food is mainly traditional pub grub - which suits the sports-loving clientèle perfectly - everything is prepared freshly on site every day, tasty and well presented. Its popularity ensures there’s always a good buzz at Bobby Byrnes and the friendly and well trained staff make sure everyone is well looked after and enjoying their meals.


The wine list is mainly New World with a nod to Italy and there’s an extensive range of beers too.

Food served daily. Mon-Fri 8.30-8.30, Sat 9.30-8.30, Sun 12-7.30. Carvery L daily; evening menu from 3pm (Sun 'tea time menu' 4-7.30). Closed Good Fri & Christmas Day. abbreviations
