About The Plough and Stars
The ambiance is your “typical Irish pub.” I hate to admit it, but this cliche provides a pretty good description, and it’s not a bad thing.
A big space that remains impressively cozy, The Plough and Stars is outfitted with memorabilia and decorations straight out of Ireland.
On weekend afternoons it’s a good place to enjoy a leisurely Irish breakfast and at night, it turns into a louder, rambunctious place full of young hipsters playing pool and downing Guinness. The music ranges from the expected (Irish folk, acoustic bands), to the decidedly unexpected: reggae, old school punk, and – every Tuesday – a jazz trio called Attack of Le Pigeon.

Plough and Stars Prices
The Plough and Stars is a pub with the added bonus of featuring live musicians, so most of the time there is no cover-charge – as long as you pay for some food, or a couple of pints you are golden.
Make sure you understand what black and white pudding (comprised of pig’s blood, barley, oats and beef fat) is before you order the Irish Breakfast.
