How have I NOT reviewed Madra Rua yet?!? - Brent R. - Nov 9, 2008
A friend and I stumbled in here one night after having dinner elsewhere. We figured it'd be a good place for a drink, and we couldn't have been more right.... More from Yelp.com �

This is definitely one of my new favorite places to eat in the Charleston area - Jamie M. - Nov 13, 2008
I loved the private feel of the booths - they're all walled in except for the doorway for the waiter to enter. Our booth had a window... More from Yelp.com �

Dorn M. from Yelp.com 7/31/07 Best Irish pub in Charleston. Excellent burgers, fish & chips is good and the Irish stew is worth the name. Excellent atmosphere and smoking/non-smoking sides. Easy feeling and a great place...

Whit r. from Yelp.com 2/12/07 This place looks a LOT like the pubs do in Ireland, or at least the ones I went in when I was there a few years back. It's a nice, warm feel with dark wood, comfy booths and lots of nooks and crannies. The draft beer selection is commendable (it IS an Irich pub) and of course you can get a properly poured pint of the black stuff any time. Food wise, I like the fish and chips. Very tasty...

Merideth M. from Yelp.com 4/2/07 I love Madra Rua, aka The Fox. Park Circle has been transformed into a great neighborhood and this pub is one of the perks. The pub is perfect for a pint and some wings....

beerbuff8888 ( Durham, North Carolina ) Oct 6, 2005 I have to agree with the other reviewer, this is the best irish pub in North America. I've been to them in big cities and small, west coast to east coast and most states in between, and nothing compares....

Charleston's little secret - sarah1113 - Oct 4, 2005
Who'da-thought that such an authentic-style Irish pub could be in such a hidden area in North Charleston?! I'm so sick of the downtown "Irish" bars where most of the patrons would ...

Best Pub in SC - mitswerdna - Mar 31, 2004
This little pub is the best place there is to sit back and have a drink. The Guinness is served perfectly (this is ensured by the Irish co-owner) and the staff is amazingly ...

JISurfer ( Goose Creek (Da Creek), South Carolina ), Jun 15, 2004 This is one kick arse Irish Pub. Probably the best I've been too, and that's saying a lot. It had a cool pure Irish ambiance to it and some officially Irish furniture in it. It's also a "certified" Guinness Pub, whatever that means. As well as the Guinness, it also sold other brews from the UK and Ireland...
