Shenanigans Irish Cafe


As the only Irish bar in Portsmouth, Shenanigans brings a little bit of Ireland and a pretty good pint of Guinness to Southsea’s main popular restaurant area. The friendly atmosphere, great music and outstanding staff will make your visit a memorable one.

At Shenanigans Irish Bar you are guaranteed a warm welcome in a safe, friendly atmosphere where you can not only have a great breakfast, you can chill out with a beer or two. For the non-drinkers they serve fantastic coffee, Yorkshire tea or a variety of soft drinks.

Shenanigans serves the best pint of Guinness on the South Coast and has the awards to prove it. It’s not all about the Guinnes, though, with Becks Vier (4%) Stella (5%) Stowford press cider, Franciscan Wells Irish Rebel red ale and Chieftans IPA frequently available on draught. A wide range of bottled beers/wines and spirits are available, including an award-winning whiskey collection for the connoisseur. Keep an eye out for the Whiskey of the month.

From Irish to Scottish, Boxty’s to Farls, Shenanigans is famous for its breakfasts and traditional Irish grub. Cooked to order, the meat is locally sourced from the award winning Buckwells butchers, literally across the road. Food is served 9am to 2pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

Shenanigans has live music every second Thursday, where the popular “TRAD” sessions take place, not to mention resident musicians playing a mix of Irish and contemporary folk music while you sup a few beers and unwind.

Shenanigans is the home of rugby and is proud sponsors of the Royal Navy rugby league team and the Seahawks.
