First beer I had in Germany was here. Came off the train hungry and thirsty and as I came up the stairs from the train station this Pub appeared....WOW ...

If you're a tourist or ex-pat who spends any amount of time in Frankfurt, chances are you'll end up going in o'Reilly's at least once!

It seems that every town in the world has a traditional Irish Pub and Frankfurt is no exception.

Obviously by traditional I mean a standard 90's type chain pub decked out in the usual floorboard and wood panelling with a selection of Irish themed pictures scattered across it's walls.

The pub's own website claims it's the biggest in Germany and it's certainly not small.  Consisting of several large rooms it can cater for masses of customers at busy times but on most evenings it's usually easy enough to find a seat.  It's open from around midday to the early hours (4 or 5 am) most days and longer on special occasions so there's always time for another drink.

It's positioning directly across from the main station means that it's a beacon for travellers who have just arrived in the city and there is often a stream of visitors dragging suitcases who have obviously just stepped off the train.

O'Reilley's sells the usual sort of stuff you'd expect from any British pub chain (burgers, chips, garlic bread, pasta, lasagne etc) for reasonable prices.  They also serve UK and Ireland based beers which you don’t often get in other German pubs but they tend to be a bit more expensive as presumably they have to be imported.

It's a favourite with many of the English speaking community, not least because it shows all the British and European sports channels and is one of the few places in the city that you can see live Premiership football (along with whatever other lower league football Sky has on) plus the likes of rugby and cricket etc etc etc.

For some people it's a waste travelling all that way and then just sitting in what could be any other faux Irish bar but if you want an afternoon watching the football then it can be highly recommended.

I usually try and avoid Irish bars like the plague but this place is about the best I've found for watching England games when I'm over there.

Certainly the biggest irish pub in Frankfurt but there are much nicer ones there. But I agree, it's great for sports as it has large screens and can hold a good few people :)
