A plane ticket to Ireland is prohibitively expensive, and the flight attendant won’t let you drink, sing, or knit her dog an Aran sweater. Fast-forward to the fun part of visiting Ireland with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at Patsy's Irish Pub in Laguna Niguel. This Groupon is worth $40 if redeemed Monday–Wednesday.
Patsy's dishes out a menu of authentic Irish eats prepared with palate-pleasing meats, fish, cheeses, and veggies. Tongues can start by wrapping themselves around the Donegal, a serving of gently fried calamari strips ($10.75), or the Dublin, a heaping helping of taters covered in melted cheese and blanketed with bacon, corned beef, or chicken ($9). Nine sandwiches pay homage to America's newest territory, such as the Derry, an irish pork banger playing drums on a flaky roll and accompanied by colcannon and gravy ($6.75). Kate Kearney's fish and chips ($11.95), Coyle shepherd's pie ($8.75), and the Liffey mixed grille—packed with a lamb chop, irish bacon, two bangers, mushrooms, and grilled tomatoes ($13)—take the stage for the main act, sending taste buds into a fit of merry river dance and joyous jigging.
Like the post office, Patsy's is open until 2 a.m. each day, and pub-going patrons are treated to a variety of entertaining evenings most nights. Since the restaurant and pub are separated, guests can enjoy a quiet dinner or wander over to the pub side for sports, a full bar's worth of libations, and lively spirits.
