Blarney Rock Restaurant
New York, NY 10001
Village Voice's Description
The Blarney Rock gushes quintessential Irish dive-bar gruff, even in an area dedicated to tourists. Located within a block of Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, the Manhattan Mall, and a slew of mainstream beer bars, it sticks out as the only place to throw back a cheap pint of Bud or Guinness. Decoration-wise, the bar is composed of '70s wood-panel walls filled with shamrocks and every sports pennant imaginable, including the University of Hawaii's. The day crowd is a mix of out-of-towners and blue-collar New Yorkers; the night crowd is dictated by Madison Square Garden's calendar, so expect like-minded patrons during Knicks games or Iron Maiden concerts.
Tips from foursquare
Buffalo Sabres fans, come here during a Sabres game!
A great spot to catch the 'Cuse game!
Best bartenders in the world hands down!
Dont come here! They kicked us out to give our table away while my friend was trying to order food and I wanted to order more beers
Start a day playing hookie with a full Irish Breakfast and a Guinness at this extremely friendly pub. You might end up spending your whole day here!
