A True Public House Experience Since 1882 | 1982.

Located in the heart of downtown Bloomington, 1/2 block west of the square. The locally owned Irish Lion Restaurant & Pub, offers a true taste of Ireland. Where friends & family gather for traditional Irish fare, seafood, steaks, lamb, Dublin pub stews, pub grub, gluten free and vegetarian options. Large groups & all ages welcome.

 

A restored historic 1882 vintage brick tavern, with cast iron columns, stained glass windows, an original Brunswick back bar, Civil War vintage front bar, 1900's mahogany & 1915 oak back bars, it will be sure to remind you of the Victorian pubs in the Old Country.
