I used to like this place for what I thought was a lively atmosphere. Lately, though, certain rather undesirable elements amongst the ""regular"" patrons have overtaken the scene. These drunks act like they own the place and aggressively grope women in full view of the bar staff but are never rebuked because of the strength of the dollars they leave behind. There are only four tiny screens so it's not a sports bar, but it's so noisy that you can't hear yourself or anyone else. With so many Irish pubs within a four-block radius of MSG to choose from, this one is definitely way overpriced, as other reviewers have noted, since they all serve the same grub. For a really good time, give Tir Na Nog a miss in favor of more straightforward sports bars like Stout (33rd/7th), where the decor is not so artistic but the crowd is more civilized, the bar menu is better for the money, and viewing capabilities are what you'd expect them to be.
