TSIM SHA TSUI, Hong Kong, SAR, China – Nestled in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui on Peking Street is a cozy Irish Pub by the name of Delaney’s. While traveling throughout Hong Kong I found myself getting tired of clubs and looking for a standard western style bar. This came to a head at St. Patricks Day when I wanted to celebrate this glorious and festive holiday. Before St. Patricks Day, I had been to Delaney’s several times. However, every time I go there, I am extremely pleased with my visits.
Delaney’s features traditional Irish food as well as more western food. I have sampled their baby back ribs, which were well worth the price. Another great meal is their traditional Irish breakfast. They serve their Irish breakfast all day for approximately 138 HKD (around $17.25 USD). For appetizers I had the smoked salmon and the mussels with chili tomato sauce. All of the food is excellent.
One of my favorite parts of this bar is the beer selection. They have a wide selection of beers from around the world. However, my favorite beer that they sell is Kilkenny’s Irish Cream Ale. I have only been able to find this beer at Irish bars in Hong Kong and in Ireland. Pints cost 63 HKD (approximately $7.88 USD).
The atmosphere is great and can get pretty loud when it is busy. It is especially busy on weekends and on St. Patricks Day. There is a daily happy hour 5 – 9pm. They also frequently show live rugby and soccer matches.
