The George Payne Irish Bar in Barcelona

Written by James

Irish hospitality at its finest!

Barcelona is the kind of city that is saturated with bars and drinking holes. You really are spoilt for choice in this fair city, and that is also true of the many Irish bars dotted around the center.

So what is it that sets The George Payne apart from the rest of the competition? Well when you look at what they offer, it really isn’t much different to any other Irish bar, except they do it bigger and better! The venue itself is big, the food portions are big, the drinks menu is big, and most importantly, the smile on their customers faces are big after a social afternoon or evening in The George Payne. The food, although not the cheapest in town, is served promptly, tastes delicious and has even won the award for the best burgers in Barcelona for the last three years running!

The ever friendly staff, (half of which are Irish) have something different going on from one night to the next so you’re always guaranteed a good night. Whether it is a beer pong tournament,  karaoke, a sporting event shown on their many screens, or even a DJ to really speed up the tempo of  the venue and keep the customers dancing and drinking in true Irish style until the early hours!

Full of atmosphere, this bar really is one of the most social and welcoming bars in Barcelona that  keeps locals, students and travellers alike coming back again and again. Tripadvisor has ranked it at #675 out of a total of 4,395 restaurants in the city, and when you look at the competition and the fact that this isn’t a restaurant exclusively, that number really reflects how great this place is.

If you want a sense of escapism from Barcelona’s usual hustle and bustle then make sure you check in at The George Payne, the bar that really does have it all.
