Rome Pubs Overview

The Nag's Head - Live Music Venue | Pub | Sports Bar in Rome

Seeing as the ancient Romans were never quite able to get a solid foot in Ireland, you might think Irish pubs in Rome would be lacking these days. And actually one could argue they are, though likely not as a result of retribution for failed domination thousands of years ago – more for the basic fact that nightlife in Rome isn’t exactly known for bringing down the house.

There’s still a decent assortment of Rome pubs though, predominantly in Centro, so English and Irish expats looking for a taste of home shouldn’t have to travel too far. The Bulldog Inn in Centro, for example, is a homey English pub that overflows with a young and boisterous English-speaking crowd just about every night. The Nag's Head is an equally popular pub that throws a hearty schedule of live music into the mix, while Trinity College is a popular Irish pub housed in a beautiful historic palazzo right off Via del Corso.

Outside of Centro, Druid’s Rock in Monti may be the most popular Irish pub in town, and is always packed with sports-loving patrons attracted by the foosball and pool tables, the noisy bar games, and the dozen or so TVs.

So after you’ve had the requisite aperitivo that is such a fundamental part of Italian culture, head to a Rome pub for a proper Guinness and some shepherd’s pie.
