Most nights we frequented this bar directly across from the Hotel Pit...er...Penn. Tim and Johnny knew us by name and were great barkeeps and fun to talk with. Made our first NYC trip a lasting memory

The Rock was established in 1969. Why do I know this? I have been going there since the day it opened. Am I old? Not really. The waitresses and bartenders are the best and are really Irsish, willing to leave you smiling out the door. Try it!

What a place to watch sports, any sport! You will find Met and Yankeee fans stopping in for a few drinks and chow before and after home games, even though the stadiums are miles away by subway. A great meeting place! Ranger games??? The place is A RANGER BAR where fans meet befor and after home games. For those who can't get tickets meet and watch the games on thrir 15 tvs. It's almost like being in MSG!! Can't stay away!! The Rock is like a magnet that keeps pulling me back!!

What can I say, The Rock keeps drawing me back whenever I am anywhere Manhattan. When you walk in, you feel like a long lost friend, the staff is more Irish than staffs in the oubs abd restaurants in Ireland.

I have seen and been in many so called Irish Pubs around the world in many cities. The Blarney Rock is soooo real because of the great Irish wait staff and bartenders. They seemed to be right off the boat, meaning very friendly, warm and with big smiles! They seemed genuinely interested to haer about were we were from and what we were doing in NYC. They offerred help with sightseeing tips and other info. The Blarney was a great experience, you have to visit. Oh! You have to get one of their business cards, it will blow you away!

We need a place to watch the Michigan - Ohio State Game that would also be close to the Garden for the Kicks - Celtics Game. We asked several NYPD at the MSG and they immediately pointed across 7th to the Blarney Rock. It was great! We watched the #1 vs #2 football game, ate great burgers, drank very reasonably priced brews and met several extremely nice people who work there. We are from all over the US and we loved the hospitality extended to us so much that we went back after the Knicks game for a night cap or two. We will definitely make the Blarney Rock a regular stop when we are in town and recommend you do the same,
