Jinty McGuinty's

Cracking stouts, raucous live music nights and comforting food are all up for grabs at this Irish bar. Something of an institution among locals and tourists alike, Jinty McGuinty's also has a great heated beer garden out back, meaning the fun doesn't have to stop when the sun goes down.


While SWG3 can always be counted on to bring the party, it's also a fabulous find for outside drinks. Grab a sun-soaked table on the mega alfresco terrace with your amigos, then enjoy quality beers and a late-night boogie.
