Paddy Flaherty's Irish Pub - Drinking at 11156 ft Sep 26, 2010
Paddy's what my favorite drinking spot while in Cusco. There's an Irish pub in every "city" in the world in my experience. And of course I end up there at some point.
Paddy's is located to the right of the Cathedral. You'll find the entrance at the first door on the right hand side of the small street next to the Cathedral. It is upstairs. Look for their sign at the top of the staircase.
Paddy's has happy hour every day from 7:00-8:00pm and then again from 10:00-10:30pm. They offer several different beverage choices 2 for 1. The food is fairly good as well.
You'll find fellow travelers here to drink the night away with. It's a fun spot. Here's what Paddy's website (www.paddysirishbarcusco.com/index.php) says about themselves:
The highest Irish-owned pub in the world, Paddy´s is THE place in Cuzco to meet locals and travellers from every corner of the globe. Established in 1996 and nestled on the corner of the Plaza de Armas (on Triunfo), the pub offers Irish staples such as Guinness, Jameson Whiskey and Irish coffee as well as a number of ales on tap, to appreciate in cozy surroundings.
Paddy´s kitchen delivers Cuzco´s best food. Whether you are in the mood for our all-day Irish breakfast, curry, pizza, a burger or one of our fantastic shepherd´s pies, you will find our enormous dishes provide all the nourishment you need. Our dedicated kitchen staff also provide a range of delicious soups and snacks to enjoy as you look out over the plaza or watch one of our music videos.
Sports fans will be delighted to hear that to accompany our imported and domestic beers, the large plasma screens show football, rugby, and American football daily. You don´t have to choose between Machu Picchu and the match anymore, at Paddy´s you can even ask our friendly English-speaking staff to record and replay the sporting event of your choice.
So come along to Lonely Planet-recommmended Paddy´s to make new friends, for the music, the pisco sours, the great view, the happy hour bargains, the eclectic decor, the Cusqueña, the sports, the hearty food or the Guinness. Come along to Paddy´s for the craic, but more than that, the craic at altitude.

Highest Irish pub in the world - Paddy Flaherty's :) Dec 11, 2008
Paddy Flaherty's calls itself "the highest Irish pub in the world". Maybe it's not 100% true, but Cusco has definitely a high altitude. This time I was in Cusco just 2 nights and both of them I visited Paddy's :P
It's one of the Irish bars in Cusco and it's located just across the road from the Cathedral. This 2nd-floor, dark-wood local is small but welcoming and has great views of the Main Squaqre. Despite this is not the only Irish bar in the city, it's one of the few places where you down a Guinness or English draft beer. They also serve authentic shepherd's pie, not to mention bread and butter pudding and other Celtic cuisine. I didn't eat here, but met 2 Irish people who were really happy with their food. They also serve salads and roast chicken. Open for lunch too. You can also watch rugby and other sports on TV. And good to know, they have Happy hour 7 - 8 pm. and 10 - 10:30 pm.
The atmosphere of this place is great and fun! I love the decoration here, the blackboards showing the menu and drinks, the cozy tables, the train running over your head, haha. But the main fun is hanging with the people from all over the world, who pack the place every night.
Thumbs up for Paddy's :)
Part of the 2 weeks ago I was the guest and now I'm the host :) travel blog
