The Goose's Acre
- General Info:
- The Goose's Acre Irish Pub stood on Main Street, Midleton, Ireland, immediately in front of "The Goose's Acre," a historical landmark named by locals where geese gaggles grazed in the 1800's. The pub opened in 1886 and was handed down from father to son through the years. In 2005, the pub was forced to close to make way for new development. While back in Ireland visiting relations, Brian Young and Colm O'Neill proposed purchasing the contents of the pub, to include both bars, from the previous owner who was distraught over the pending loss of the pub's history and heritage. Although it meant shipping the pub across the Atlantic Ocean, the previous owner was ecstatic that The Goose's Acre Irish Pub would continue its traditions of bygone times. Brian Young and Colm O'Neill made the decision to bring this authentic pub to The Woodlands to share the romance and history of years past. We welcome you to pull up a chair and enjoy the experience of The Woodlands only authentic European Pub. You'll find Happy Hour (all day long!), a traditional yet inventive bar and dining menu, the best drinks a most a truly irreplicable Irish Pub feel with the beautiful, hardwood fixtures and original furnishings.

We go here a lot for half-priced burgers on Wednesdays for lunch. Everything's OK, but the service is habitually slow. It's a neat place as far as decor, but we went there tonight for dinner and left wishing we had eaten somewhere else.
First, we went downstairs but there was a guitar player down there and our table was real close to his speakers. There's no way we would have been able to talk so we went back to a booth upstairs. Then the music (and we are all music lovers --one of us even a professional) but the music they were playing was just loud, distorted, rock and roll. Not even classic rock or anything, just distorted background noise and very annoying. So, everyone in the place had to significantly raise their voices to have a conversation and it just made it worse. We moved again to a different table and it was tolerable but that's as far as I'll go. (What ever happened to Irish music in an Irish pub?) To top it all off I had a $12.95 coupon which was not subtracted from our bill. I would have missed it if I hadn't looked over our bill. We were seriously ready to get out of there and I had to call the waiter back to have my credit card credited.
I'd say The Goose is OK, but I'd stick to the half priced lunch specials and make sure you're not in a hurry when you go there.

I always enjoy this bar. Great place to visit after getting dinner somewhere else (food isn't that great). The only bar in Houston that has Ireland's Smithwick's ale on tap! The only real drawback, for me, is that the live music is just kind of crammed in the middle of the restaurant and you can't carry on a conversation while the music is playing. But excellent experience if you are there when the bands aren't - or if you like to sit outside next to the ""riverwalk"".
