After a lovely night in Auckland, made the mistake of going to Danny doolans.bar man Keith told me to ' go back to England' and 'cry somewhere else ' after verbally abusing me. I'd had 2 drinks, wasn't causing a problem,they said they wouldn't serve me, laughed in my face, then tried to give me shots. Not a good first impression of newzealand.

Not much to do in Auckland CBD on a week night especially when it's a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday night. Head over to Danny Doolans, a Irish bar, believe me, you would thank me. This place is great, live music every night, sing along, dance, and have a drink with their full bar. I came here a few times and had a blast on every occasion. It does get quite busy on the weekends, and you'll have to pay to get in. Fortunately, the entrance is free during the week nights and Sunday.

The perfect place for a catch up with friends and you never know what new friends you might make. The band is awesome, have a laugh dancing, have a drink or just hang out. I love this place!

Grungy irish bar in the viaduct and definitely a good time bar. Danny Doolans is probably the most unpretentious bar in the viaduct. Well priced drinks and good music - good to have a bar like Dannys in the viaduct area.

If you love listening to U2 then look no further! I stopped by Danny Doolans for a few Friday night drinks with workmates and wasn't expecting to stay too long. Time flies by when you having so much fun and blending with a good crowd. Those friendly Irish folks sure know how to whip up a good pub meal too!

Danny doolans is possibly the one pub in auckland where you can walk in, drink, and know all the words to the songs they sing!!! Admittedly, the drink factor may distort your view on your singing ability but its fun all the same.Its cool having a bar with big wooden benches and a good stock of whiskeys. Its a grass roots approach to a night out on the town. awesome night

Having just been to Danny's on Saturday night I have to say - SUCH FUN! Our annual girls weekend of 7 married 30 something women would just not be the same without a night at Danny's. Unlike a lot of other bars the average age is not 16, but a huge range of age groups which is refreshing. Our only complaint was that the band came on quite late (after 11pm) and the 5min break was more like 30min. Sing, dance, flirt - feel alive!

Danny's is without a doubt the best Irish Pub Ive ever been too. In particular the live music is simply outstanding, and you not only get fantastic singing but a comedy act as well!! What Mr Halls said about the musicians being unattractive I can tell you, as a woman is completely off base! The bar staff are really friendly. I would most highly recommend this bar for anyone looking for a good time!
