Every city has one and Hamilton is no different. Welcome to Flanagan’s; Bermuda’s only Irish pub. Recently refurbished and now looking better than ever, it doesn’t go over the top with replica farming implements, Irish road signs and other meaningless paddywackery.

Located right on Front Street, there are two ways to enter. If the doorman at the top of the stairs on the Front Street entrance doesn’t like the look of you, go a few yards to the left to the Emporium Building entrance and try your luck there. Flanagan’s actually has two bars connected by a walkway.

The smaller one at the back is the Outback Sports Bar. With more than 20 HD TVs, including a 63-inch giant, it’s the best place in Bermuda to watch live sports. Come here and catch the action from the English Premier League, NFL, NBA, and all major sporting events.

Following the refurbishment, the main bar is now a cosy space with lots of dark wood and red upholstery. Beers on tap include Boddingtons, Carlsberg, Fosters, Guinness, Kilkenny, and Sam Adams. The pub also serves a good selection of bottled beers such as Amstel Light, Budweiser, Heineken, Miller Light and Becks. Every Friday Flanagan’s hosts a popular happy hour with reduced drink prices and a complimentary carvery.

As well as being a watering hole, Flanagan’s is a popular dining spot serving pub grub at reasonable prices. For an appetiser try its award-winning Bermuda Fish Chowder. Entrees include Irish favourites like Steak & Guinness Pie (a pastry pie filled with diced sirloin and vegetables in Guinness gravy). Catch of the Day can be prepared in a variety of styles including Irish, Bermudian, Jamaican and Cajun. Flanagan’s also offers a huge All Day Breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, black pudding and fries or potatoes). Take our advice; it’s the best hangover cure in Bermuda. Eat al fresco on the balcony for great views of Front Street and Hamilton Harbour.

Flanagan’s is open every day of the week. Weekday hours are 11 am to 1 am. On weekends it opens at 9 am for breakfast. Lunch is served 11 am to 5 pm daily, and dinner 5 pm to 11 pm. On Friday and Saturday evenings there’s live music, DJ’s and karaoke.

Reservations are not normally required for dining, but for a view from the porch of the entertainment on Harbour Nights (Wednesdays – summer) we’d recommend making one.

In May 2014 opened The Snug, a café on the ground floor of the Emporium Building (below Flanagan’s and the Outback Sports Bar). At breakfast time it offers a good selection of sandwiches, pastries, breakfast platters, pancakes and waffles. The lunch menu features soups, burgers, and sandwiches.

The Snug is open from 7 am to 4 pm Monday to Saturday. It is situated in the space that was formerly Kathy’s Cafe.

Reviews and Additional Information

  1. We went here on Wednesday evening but couldn’t get a table to watch the street festival. It would have been fun so I would say to anybody else that you should try and reserve in advance. None the less the food was good and the beer cold. After we went down to the street and were in the middle of the festival.

  2. Was here in 2006. It was ok. Was middle of the day during the week so no action to speak of. My overall impression of Bermuda was that its nice but way too expensive! If you’re into eating out and drinking a lot you better be rich!!

  3. I just love this place.Great food. Love going in for breakfast followed by a cold Guinness. Regularly call in on my stays in Bermuda. Can’t wait to see the new alterations on my next trip in September and of course darling Anthony.

  4. Love the changes, adds real class. We stop by every visit to Bermuda.

  5. Extremely slow service, mediocre food at best. The ribs were sent back and exchanged for a hockey puck burger. No apologies. Live and learn. Would not go back. KFC is a few blocks away on Queen and the food is far superior to what is being passed off at Flanagan’s. Where is Gordon Ramsey for this Kitchen Nightmare when you need him?

  6. One of the best places on the island.

  7. This has always been my favourite haunt as Dion certainly is the best bar manager on the island. But this is a guys’ pub.

  8. If you want to listen to the RUDE bartender yelling at the waiter and the customers as well as our group then go to see the show! What a nightmare that visit was. Get rid of the joker behind the bar! We will be sure to pass the info to the cruise line we were on in hopes that they will NOT request people to go to your bar!

  9. Their ribs are the best i’ve ever had!!!

  10. Flanagan’s was a great place to hang out and have a drink. (I didn’t have any food, so I can’t say about that). The bartenders were friendly and personable. The drinks were great, and it was fun to have access to so much soccer. I loved it so much, I went back 3 nights in a row while I was vacationing there!

  11. Was there for dinner Thursday 6/7/07. The wait staff was a little off as they brought our salad with our entree instead of before. However, the food and drink were great. I had the Shepherd’s Pie which was so filling I couldn’t finish it all. My friend’s daughter and son both loved the chicken fingers’ platter while others at our table had the steak. Make sure you ask for your steak extremely well done if you want it thoroughly cooked though. Great meal at a great price.

  12. I thought Flanagan’s was the best part of Bermuda, and based on what a time I had on that island, that’s saying a lot!

  13. Flanagan’s is cool but the blonde bartender is a tool.

  14. If you don’t mind waiting ages for your food and getting chatted up by learing locals, then Flanagans could be the place for you.
