Maastricht has a fair number of pubs and bars throughout the Old Town, yet not so many as to appear obtrusive. The Dutch when drunk are out to enjoy themselves rather than look for a fight (as is often the case in the UK, for instance). Hence, a night out is less stressful and more relaxed.
The John Mullins Irish pub is just that. Nothing fancy or novel, no innovations or new ideas to get you in through the door, just good old-fashioned "spit and sawdust" hospitality. Drinks are the usual fare with the prices much the same as anywhere else.
Open all day, they serve breakfast and dinner as well as evening meals and bar snacks. There is an almost Olde-World feel to it, with wooden partitions and old paintings and posters festooning the wall, which add to its charm and character.
If you're after a friendly drink in normal surroundings with no flashing lights or thumping house music (you can have a conversation here without shouting!), then look no further.
Finally, the street name may be wrong, but just walk straight up from the railway station and you can't miss it.

John Mullins is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and serves traditional Irish food. The bar has the usual array of hard liquors, plus some favorite Irish beers. My recommendation, though, is a glass of cider, something that tastes like a cross between beer and apple juice. Drink prices here are comparable to the other bars throughout the city.
John Mullins is located on Wijckerbrugstraat, the main street leading from the train station to the pedestrian bridge, which crosses the Maas and takes you to the other part of downtown.
