Guinness Bar

We Serve the best pint of Guinness on the South Coast and have the awards to prove it. Other Guinness products we are proud to serve include Hop House 13 lager. It’s not all about the Guinness, so we also have Amstel (4%) Heineken (5%) & Symonds cider. Our latest trendy products come from the Emerald isle and the “Porter House” Group consisting of Temple lager and Yippy IPA, which completes the draughts. A wide range of bottled beers/wines and spirits are available, including our award winning whiskey collection for the connoisseur. Keep an eye out for our Whiskey of the month…. Not to mention the world best “Dingle gin” and Dingle vodka to rival our other popular brands.

Shenanigans: THE CLAN

Iain Kirby

“The Gaffer”
The Chief, ex Royal Navy of 24 years, mostly spent frequenting various bars around the world and getting paid for it, so decided to spend his generous gratuity on building one himself. You’ll catch Iain AKA “Kirbs” sleeping on various park benches around Southsea common, or feeding the ducks at Canoe Lake.

Mike

“The Manager” Top Dad
Has been with us since the very beginning back in December 2009. Has recently become a 1st time Dad, so currently resembling a zombie as no one knows tiredness like a parent. Be prepared to duck when walking past the kitchen in case of any flying food items, when an unsuspecting difficult breakfast hits the pass. Also a self-confessed legend of the pumps and all round handsome chap. You will see Mike smashing out breakfast from the busy kitchen, or front of house charming the customers.

Alice

Dish maintainer
The main cog in the wheel, the lovely Alice the youngest of the clan and in charge of all things dishes, supports the big man in the kitchen and adds a touch of classiness to the bar.

Shenanigans

BAND
Our resident Irish band who have been with us throughout. Along with our 2 weekly “TRAD” sessions, Shenanigans cover our big events throughout the year. St Patrick’s, birthday etc. First class musicians who will get your feet tapping guaranteed!

THE SHENANITRUCK

TRUCK
The new truck replaced the old Shenanivan last year after many years of service. Rebuilt in Florida and shipped to the UK, after some subtle branding and carrying the theme across from the old van the the Shenanitruck was born. You will see and certainly hear it around Southsea.

What People Are Saying About Shenanigans Irish Bar & Cafe

We are looking to reopen on the 2 Dec!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone, we are hoping to reopen on the 2 December!! What tier that is yet to be decided, but we will adjust our procedures to suit. As you all know we are a small intimate venue, so we have taken advice on the best way to operate safely and as normally as possible. We do not want you to face a bar full of perspex screens, warning stickers and masking tape, nobody needs to be reminded what the past 9 months have been about. We have tweaked our menu and made some scrumptious additions..... Please bear with us during these difficult times. Please wear a mask on entry to the bar and we will have you seated as soon as possible. Hopefully things will return to normal very soon. We will continue to show all live sport as it happens. We cant wait to get you back in! Keep an eye out on our social media for updates on all that is Irish, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Keep safe x
