"The friendly hospitality of owners
Michael and their jolly bilingual staff has made The GAEL
(formally Tadg's Irish Pub) the Lonely Planet's favorite Kyoto bar;
relax and make friends, while enjoying great food and reputedly the
best pint of Guinness in Kansai: choose from a fine selection of
whiskies, bottled beers and Japanese lagers." Kyoto Visitor's
Guide (read more reviews here).
We changed our name on March 17, 2007 to "The Gael Irish
Pub"--same great pub, same great craic!
Whether you're looking for great food, great music or the best of
wines, spirits and beers, the warm wooden interior, brass fittings
and low ceiling bring traditional Ireland to the heart of Kyoto's

Irish Lamb Stew, healthy and delicious Beef & Guinness Stew,
Fish & Chips and Mushroom Pie. Or, if you crave something a

dishes that will satisfy even the most discerning palate.
Boasting only the finest Irish beers and whiskeys, as well as a
wide range of the best domestic and imported beers and spirits, our
drinks menu will leave you spoiled for choice and maybe a little
