A few years ago an Irish pub in Madrid was a surprising novelty, but today it is almost a tradition.

There are many such bars dotted about the capital and most cater for typically northern European tastes in terms of the beers, the large TV screens showing live football & other sports and the food, with dishes such as "Bangers 'n' Mash", Shepherd's Pie, Steak and Kidney Pie, Stews and Steaks not uncommon.

Whilst GoMadrid certainly recommends sampling the delicious Spanish food and excellent Spanish wine during your stay in Madrid, with numerous tapas bars, restaurants and other establishments ready and willing to take your custom, a visit to an Irish pub is a welcome break and a return to familiar tastes for many, and definitely to be recommended on St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) when every Irish bar in Madrid worth its Guinness will be decked out in green and hosting some celebration or other with live music, parties and flowing ale.
