Flaherty's is one of a chain of Irish pubs in Spain, so it does have a slightly plastic feel - though not as bad as some. The pub itself is large, comfortable, friendly, popular and serves a wide variety of beers, whiskeys and of course, Guinness. In addition it has an excellent pub menu, and food is available from 10am until midnight. Pl. Joaquim Xirau is just off the Ramblas, so it's in a great location and provides a pleasant sunny pla├ža in which to enjoy a smooth cold pint of the black stuff. Check their website & facebook for events and promo's, but be prepared to pay typical tourist pub prices most of the time. It boasts two TVs and a projector screen, which are perfect for watching all the usual sporting events. During the day the the music is 80's to modern day pop, whilst in the evenings there is generally a move towards traditional and contemporary Irish live music. In summary, Flaherty's is the typical Irish pub abroad, but it's very well done and well worth a visit to remind yourself of that quintessential pub experience.

Hi there. Thanks for posting us on your website. We appreciate it. I would like to point out though that we are not a chain of pubs as we are a family who own the pubs and we run them ourselves. Also, all of the interior is brought over from Ireland and directly and carefully sourced from there by ourselves as we are an Irish family, so I do feel it is unfair to call our pub "plastic". We would really appreciate it if you could rectify this data. We also now have six screens in the pub, two of which are projectors and we have opened a pool and darts room. Our prices are very much on the low end of pub prices and that is demonstrated in the fact that our pint of Guinness is still under 5 euro (most pubs are over 6 euro nowadays).
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you need any additional information as we do really appreciate you having included us. Regards.
