Irish Bar

Hope somebody here can help me - I have been told that there is an Irish bar (Moores?) in Santiago. Would anyone have contact details for the bar? I'm trying to find somewhere for a group, who hope to arrive at the end of their journey on Friday evening, to watch a very important rugby match on Saturday afternoon.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi there,

There used to/is an Irish bar here:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source= ... 5&t=h&z=20
....see the black car on the corner and the white umbrellas? This is/was an Irish bar, but I am not sure if they changed owners/style-of-bar... I would have to look next time I walk by.

That said. If you walk into any bar in Santiago and say "Hi, we are 10/15/20 people that are interested in watching this game, could you put it on?". 99% of the bars would say "Yes"!. Most bars have a large TV, and they are looking for customers.

What channel is this on? Rugby is not very popular in Spain, so if the bar does not have this particular channel... :-(

Saludos,
Ivar

Thanks a million for the information. The match will be on Sky Sports but because there will be soccer matches on at the same time I thought an Irish bar would be best. This is a particularly important match - it is the semi final of rugby's European Cup - and both teams are Irish so I would imagine Irish bars all over Europe will show this rather than a soccer match.

Sounds good. The Sky Sports is not available in Spain, but it might be on another channel down here.... not sure.

I would look here (Digital + is the "Sky" of Spain):
http://www.plus.es/guiatv/buscadorbasico.html
Check "Deportes" in the right column, then look at the date of your game, and "Buscar" at the bottom... if you see the rugby game in the listing you know what channel to ask for.... if not.... I think you are out of luck. :-(

Saludos,
Ivar

Hi there: I have on numerous occasions reflected on my caminos over a pint at an Irish bar which I believe is named Murphy's but could be wrong about the name. It is located on the north west side of the old town. If you turn right before crossing the street ( Rua do Pombal ? ) into Alamenda Park it is just stagger and a stumble to a quiet pint. It has been over 2 years since my last camino but I hope it still there; I'm planning to be back in less then a year. Good Luck, God Bless

Ivar - thank you for the television guide - it appears they will be out of luck as there is no rugby coverage listed for Saturday evening. Never mind - I will record it for them which will give them something tolook forward to when they return home on Wednesday.

Rayof - I think you are talking about the same pub as Ivar which as far as I knew is called Moores. I'm sure they'll get sorted - some of them would smell a pint of guinness from a mile away!!!

Hello again, I've no experience of sites which claim to offer free on-line viewing; in fact there's probably no such thing as a free lunch; but perhaps you could google and find something that might work.

"watch leinster v munster live via online streaming" seems to suggest free viewing if you download software

Back again :cry:

All along I've assumed OP is seeking information for Munster folk.
Unexpectedly, but with a great performance Leinster beat Munster 25 9 Wow!

Party on :)

So I suppose that means that those of us with ties to Munster must drown our sorrows and hope for the best another year??? Ahhh, any excuse.... :lol:

There's always hurling....

Buen Camino,
 
Kaixo,
the only Irish owned in La Coruna is Finbar Murphys but i dont think he has sky,or if your in the Basque region(Euskadi) check out Scanlan´s Tavern Irish in Gernika,Irish owned and not only has satellite with all Rugby the bar is a Munster supporters bar.
good luck,

Can't remember where I saw this, whether in France or on the northern route but there was a pub called "The Loch Ness Irish Pub"!

Hi,

Apologies for replying to an old discussion but I'll be visiting Santiago this weekend and would like to watch a rugby match on Sunday the 23rd at 13.00.

Can anybody suggest a bar in Santiago which would be open and which may have Sky Sports or beIN Sports?

Thanks.
