My friends,wife and myself really liked Blarney Rock. They had a great menu with great service. The was not a long wait for the food and it was pretty good and so was the beer. It was like being in a small town pub in the biggest city in the world !!
What an experience!!

You will find people from all over the planet and maybe a few that might be from "out of space" You will find a CEO from out of town sitting next to a hard hat worker, a tourist from the olde sod and visiting sports fan going to MSG. The Shepherds pie is sensational. The Irsh breakfast has no competition!! A great meeting place. The staff is very competent and more than friendly.
GREAT IRISH PUB

The Rock has the best Irish breakfast this side of Dublin, no doubt about it!! The food is very reasonably priced, even the best cheap eats in town. The all Irish wait staff greets their guests as family, not just customers. This is a rare thing these hectic days in NYC. They want to know where we are from, they care!!! The guest base is from the young 21 year olds attending a concert in MSG to rough and tumble hockey fans mixed in with construction workers and empty suits. WHAT A JOINT!!!
Great sports bar and meeting place!

What a place to watch sports, any sport! You will find Met and Yankeee fans stopping in for a few drinks and chow before and after home games, even though the stadiums are miles away by subway. A great meeting place! Ranger games??? The place is A RANGER BAR where fans meet befor and after home games. For those who can't get tickets meet and watch the games on thrir 15 tvs. It's almost like being in MSG!! Can't stay away!!

Great place, friendly Irish waitresses and bar tenders! Real authentic pub! Its close to Madison Square Garden so the bar is buzzing with hockey fans before every game, the atmosphere is fantastic! On St. Patricks Day its the place to be with real Irish food and Irish staff your guaranteed the best craic ever! Looking forward to going back in June to see everyone there! Great location near MSG, Empire State Building, Macy's and Penn Station. A trip to New York isnt complete without a visit to the Blarney Rock Pub.

Perfect Irish Bar

Can I just say the Blarney Rock is just the typical Irish pub that the Irish and Americans love. The food is lovely, pure Irish grub, the prices are very reasonable and the waitresses and bartenders are very nice. Perfect place to watch the games and have a drink.
