AOL Travel Editor's Review

Named after the mythical Irish land of eternal youth, this cavernous pub is one of downtown's most popular hangouts for Raleigh-ites both young and old. Don't be put off by the atmosphere, which might be described as "Disney does Ireland"—faux stone walls, a fake thatched-roof cottage in the middle of the room. The decor might be artificial, but the rollicking atmosphere is 100 percent real. Soccer fans shout at the TV during weekend matches, trivia teams scream out answers on Wednesday's Quiz Night, Celtic bands fiddle away at Friday jam sessions. While the beer is clearly the main event (have a Guinness, naturally), the food is surprisingly good—we’re partial to the lamb sliders.
