Well its open again, it took a year for the new Austrian owner to complete the so called renovation, but to be quite honest nothing has changed much, except for the glaring omission of English Sports TV. (The new owner keeps saying its coming but time will tell), many of the English speaking clientèle are being turned away because of this, and as NO food is available (even small snacks), it doesn't make for a good night out.
Most of the customers at the moment are just curios Austrians. Couple this with the mostly part time Austrian bar staff (students) who's English is practically non existent, and you end up with a Tirolean cellar bar with an Irish name.
Limericks is the only Irish/English pub in the whole of Innsbruck now, as the other one Kavana's Closed down Last year.
If your looking for a lunch time drink here, forget it, doors open at 4pm.
The comments and site info on this pub, are a little out of date now Limmerick Bill's closed last year. However, a new owner (an Austrian) has taken the place over and it should be open again (as an Irish Pub with the same name) later in 2005.
I will post more comments then.
Limmerick Bill's Irish Pub is a nice Irish-pub on Maria Theresienstrasse nr.9 , just about at the rarther end, opposite of the Spitalskirche. I often used to go there, while I was working in Innsbruck and it was always great fun there.
Dress Code: Irish Pubs do never care a lot for a special dresscode, they rather care a lot for a "fun-code"
I'll admit to patriotic bias here and say Limerick Bill's because I'm from Limerick and it's called Limerick Bill's ... ;)
It's a nice cross between an Irish country pub and the traditional Tirolean Stuben.
I took home a Limerick Bill's beermat as a souvenir - I still have it at home :)
Dress Code: We went in looking like typical bedraggled students in t-shirts, shorts and sandals and they still served us :)
It was recommended to us so Seni & I decided to give it a go. We walked along Maria-Theresien-Strasse and couldn't find it. The same scenario took place the next evening. Then our German Ädler showed us where it was - hm, no wonder we didn't see it, that sign was as small as it could possibly be!!!
The inside was quite pleasant (apart from the color falling off the ceiling), but the atmosphere was rather dead. Prices? Well, they have to collect money for repainting the ceiling!!!
One more detail - visitors to that pub are either intelligence deficient or have never seen a group of 5 good-looking women! I won't say more. I'm only sorry that I refrained from commenting their English - for people making so much noise, they could have at least learn some grammar.
We only went for a pint here but this place looked really nice. Be careful though, half pints are really expensive! I was glad to have ordered a pint ;-)
Dress Code: None. And if you are German trying to impress English speaking people here learn your grammar ;-)
small Irish Pub with a small stage for live music. Not a bad place to grab a drink and get a good show at the same time
Sure we checked out th Irish pub. It was quite expensive......but what shall you do when you are longing for a pint???
Dress Code: None
