The Scene

Located on the Cours Saleya, Ma Nolan's is an upscale Irish pub with a friendly international staff that draws in an equally diverse clientele of local regulars, expats, and English speakers.

Located on the Cours Saleya, Ma Nolan’s is an upscale Irish pub with a friendly international staff that draws in an equally diverse clientele of local regulars, expats, and English speakers.

Mornings see a hungry crowd that stops by the terrace for a hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs – a rare treat in the south of France – while afternoons are given over to the after-beach set, and nights bring in a rowdy clientele ready to mingle over pints of Guinness and dance to live rock music on the makeshift mosaic tile dance floor.

The pub’s enormous bar is encircled by wooden tables and booths from which boisterous groups take part in the popular quiz nights or gather to watch everything from sumo wrestling to cricket to lots of rugby and soccer on the four flatscreen TVs.

Whether patrons show up for the music, the sports, or the loud conversation and a few laughs, there’s never an off night at Ma Nolan’s.

Ma Nolan's User Reviews

Average Irish pub with some exceptional features
Sabina B. Oct 3, 2013
I lived in Nice for almost 2 years so I am pretty much confident about general knowledge of the city. I went to Ma Nolans probably hundred times. I am not really big fun of Irish pubs as they seem to be wherever I go (I prefer more original places with a character) , but I have to admit that this one in Nice has exceptional vibe, food and some events. Food is very good. If you going for dinner, I suggest their amazing burgers with sweet potato fries. If you feel like having a snack, I would go for NACHOS. It is the best I ever had. Sunday fudge ice cream is a must! I really like their pub quiz nights. It is a good fun if you going for relaxing night and if you and your team are good enough, you win some Euros to pay for your dinner there. I would also mention some of the Sport Events, they have big plasma screens all over so everyone can see. I should not forget about LIVE MUSIC on some certain days of a week. I seen have seen many bands and all of them were great. They usually play classic rock for chilling nights and from time to time they play Irish music. It is a good place to visit and eat on your tour de Nice. You get to see many French and English people sitting together mixing both languages at the same time. BON VOYAGE!
Ma Nolans - Cannes
Shivam S. Jun 19, 2013
They have 3 restaurants now: 2 in Nice and 1 in cannes, being a student here whenever i go to Cannes, i always like to eat at Ma Nolans because of their wide range of options. The staff are very friendly and now that i haven been their many time, they got to know me and they know what i'm gonna order : a bacon burger !!!! While sitting and eating you can enjoy the nice music and shows on a big tv screen. The interior is very cosy with chocolate brown wooden tables. The overall decorum is very nice which gives you a great feeling when you enter. In Cannes; it's just located in the main busy street so it's easy to locate and while sitting on terrace and having a meal you can observe some people walking by, touristic activities and much more, it's just amazing.
Fun Irish Pub

I always end up in an Irish pub when I’m abroad, and Ma Nolan’s has a special touch of elegance that made it a very relaxed place to go for a pint. The Guinness is nothing like you’d find in Ireland, but the crowd makes up for it: it’s very easy to come here on your own and make friends within minutes. The bartenders are all really friendly and give lots of advice about where to go and what to see while you’re in Nice. The music, however, is my favorite part of this pub. There’s nothing quite like hearing live music in the summertime in Nice, and I have seen several impressive performers here.
