It's too bad the pub is small. With all the commercial Guiness placards, doesn't have the authentic pub feel to it. Needs some local charm. Pub area picks up a lot of the noise from an adjacent and open dining area. There is a low wall that separates the two areas, but some additional screen would make the pub area more welcoming and nicer. Right now it is more like drink one beer and I am ready to go. Also, seemed kind of pricey for what you get.

severna park can never compete with the Killarney House in Davidsonville.
The first thing to overcome is the quality of the food and the staff, and Killarney can not be beat. next is the location. Severna Park is an overbuilt congested pit, no more than an extension of the slums and trailer dwellers of Glen Burnie.

Umm, Kilarney house and Brian Boru share the same owners. Some consider Edgewater a slum extension of Annapolis.

a slum extension? when the average home is now going for a million?

look, there is no need to be ashamed of your over crowded traffic laden pit called severna park.

by the way, I dont live in either location, however I must say that Edgewater has much more to offer than anything in severna park, and as far as the killarney house goes. its not actually in edgwater.

Why don't you use facts. The median price of homes is higher in Severna Park than Edgewater. Killarney is in Davidsonville, but you signed Edgewater for some reason. Guess you are ashamed of where you really live. Actually, I don't think Severna Park is anything great. However, since there is less naive, uneducated people like yourself in SP, it is tolerable.

Actually, I live in Davidsonville.
maybe one day you to can afford a house and some land out here.

tell me, when you look out your front window, how many other homes do you see?
I dont see any. matter of fact, I cant see any other homes anywhere around my house.

for me to live in severna park would be very much the same as living in section 8 housing.

This bit of conversation does a ton of wonders for all places involved. LOL It sure didn't help me learn anything about any of the establishments, but perhaps just two of their "patrons" who might be involved in a bar fight or two or three... LOL

not a bar fight at all. Just some sparring between two areas.
there are two types of people in Maryland, those that live in the Davidsonville/Edgewater area, and those that really want to..

anyway, The Killarney House is an excellent choice to eat at. Im not really that big on the atmosphere there, but the service and food are excellent.

Both restaurants have their merits and problems. Brian Boru is smallish and suffers from noise saturation. Killarney House is big like a barn, but the pub is close and was very smoky the last time I was there. Galway Bay's pub was the smokiest of the bunch, so if you like your alcohol and nicotine together, opt for Old Annapolis! Perhaps, that detriment changed with the new laws? All three places share menus and the food quality are the same - kitchen staff are probably all well-known to each other. Some dishes are far over-priced for their quality, while others have superb value and freshness. I'll continue to go to all depending on where I end up on which weeknight evenings, though Galway Bay is the longest haul.

Both places are great - the food in Killarney and Brian Boru's is the same - same menu - same fare. Who cares where you live as long as you call it home.

You can't go wrong either place. The beer is cold when it is supposed to be and the food is hot when you are ready for it.

so go ahead and enjoy.

By far the best restaurant I've been to in years. The atmosphere isn't great (it's like a normal sports bar), but the food is spectacular. I've recommended it to all my friends, family, and co-workers.

Well... I hope the two of them never catch each other at brian boru... that would be embarrassing for the both! But then again, i guess they wouldn't recognize each other unless they started bragging about who's vagina is bigger!!

This Brian Boru place is small, noisy and expensive. There are better places to go.

This Joe guy is an idiot. If he recommends it, then that tells me to stay away from it.

I think all of you richy riches should donate at least one of your millions to the Riverkeepers.
And I love Killarney House. It's chilled out and a has a variety of great things....like the pot roast...big yummmmmm. Even great salads. Next time I want to try the Oatmeal Trout. My friend is a big fan of the Corn Beef Ceasar.
And just a reminder---PLAY NICE
