The Irish have suffered many unfair stereotypes over the centuries—namely, that they are outstanding kite makers and have the ability to communicate with the European Nightjar using high-pitched whistles. Move past these silly notions and taste some truth with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Emerald Isle edibles at Tommy Doyle's. This Groupon is valid for use at all three Tommy Doyle's locations.
Tommy Doyle's menu whacks hunger on its horned head with a delicious shillelagh of Irish-influenced pub grub. Starters include colcannon cakes ($6.99)—the traditional Irish appetizer made from hand-crafted potatoes, cabbage, and scallions—and the famine-fighting potato skins ($6.99). Cow-consumers will have no qualms with Tommy Doyle's array of burgers such as the bacon-and-cheese-crowned Hill 16 ($9.99) and the Kitchen Sink ($10.99), topped with mushrooms, jalapenos, onion, cheese, and a fried egg. Wayward Leopold Blooms missing the cuisine of fair Erin can opt for traditional Irish dishes such as a shepherd's pie ($11.99) and corned beef and cabbage ($10.99), or discover how seafood tastes on this side of the Atlantic with Tommy Doyle's most popular dish, the fish 'n' chips ($12.49). In honor of the Coyote Grill, the restaurant that preceded Tommy Doyle's at its Kendall Square location, Tommy Doyle's also serves fajitas in chicken ($11.99), steak ($12.99), and veggie ($10.99) variations. If your NASA training requires that you eat all your food for the day by mid-afternoon, stop by Tommy Doyle's for its weekend brunch.
Depending on which Tommy Doyle's location you stumble into, you're bound to find an atmosphere overflowing with craic (good times) and live music—a setting rarely experienced outside of leprechaun weddings and banshee karaoke night. Today's Groupon to Tommy Doyle's treats you to a mouthwatering Irish experience even tastier than the time you ate the Blarney Stone.

- This is a good place to catch a quick meal before going to the Kendall theatre, or to have a bite after work. Its [sic] too noisy for a "meaningful date," but great if you are with a group of friends. There is a good selection of food and moderate price. – Dalinz, Citysearch
- The waiters and the bartenders were so nice to us. They have a very nice variety of food and there is something for everyone. All of us enjoyed our meals... – SharonDuggan, Citysearch
