The pub has live music that just didn’t seem very Irish to me (Aretha’s Respect? It’s Raining Men??), but was nonetheless very enjoyable. Watch out though: if you get too jolly and distracted, you might be entrapped by band’s lead singer and made to sing karaoke style. It’s not easy after a few pints!
Beer? Thank God for Guinness! But in all honesty, the selection was rather pathetic: narrowed down to Harp, Killian’s and our favourite Irish stout. Food? Well… like any other Irish pub, enough said. One unusual thing about Sean’s was the special glasses they had for your beer. You can get the smaller 0.7 liter or the larger 1.4 liter stein filled with your favourite cold one. All I can say is, you’ll pray that the bathroom was closer after downing the 1.4 liter monstrosity (builds up your biceps quite a bit).
Warning: booze is rather expensive in Taiwan (well… pub booze), so bring loads of NTD (New Taiwanese Dollars… Hello? You still don’t know?) I suppose being an Irish pub aficionado, I could see myself spending my weekend evenings here.
