User review by taz1976 – A great place to watch a game or just strike up a nice conversation with someone. Great selection of music, which is just loud enough to enjoy, but won't have you going deaf.
A classic Irish bar with a friendly, laid-back feel. – The Scene
Ryan's Daughter (named after a David Lean film about an Irish woman who falls for a British soldier) draws a more eclectic crowd than the typical Upper East Side bar. Weeknights find a core group of regulars the bartenders know by name--or at least by drink. On weekends, the bar transforms into a bustling mix of local professionals in their late 20s to 40s.
A lively jukebox featuring favorite sons U2 and Van Morrison provides the soundtrack, while a pool table, dart board and mini-basketball game keep the action going. Try the house brew for a smooth, sweet pale ale, or sample the Gaelic coffee as you munch on free potato chips. You won't find a lot of gimmicks or glitz here, just good drinks and good company to unwind with.
Comfy – Let me just say, this is one of my favorite places in New York. It is understated and pleasant, with a great group of locals, young and old, and a staff that could not be friendlier. And how can you beat a place with "turkey night".....free roast turkey every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. So come, have a drink, a sandwich, and a chat with the fabulous staff at this local "everybody knows your name" locale.
love this place – I really love this bar... randomly picked it, for a make our own pub crawl...and really enjoyed it... The bartenders are super friendly, the other patrons... are nice and layed back... Definitly a nice place to kick back and relax with a group...
