Cozy feel with small bar in the middle. Semi-circular bar is surrounded by 25-30 stools. There's a nice patio outside for the smokers leaving the inside smoke-free. There's some Irish music playing outside and in but it's completely tolerable. There's a smaller bar upstairs with another patio with a decent view of the Greensboro skyline.
The barkeep was way off on a few points she made to couple at the bar. She told them the nitro taps were CO2 taps and that the rest were "natural." Other than that, she was helpful and somewhat knowledgeable.
They had 16 taps with quite a few Irish stouts but with some notables. Maredsous 8, Chimay tripel, and Hennepin.
Not a bad place to stop and it's right across from Natty Greene's so it's convenient.
Make sure to stop here if you're in town.

I love this place. They have a great selection of beers. Their staff is very, very friendly. This is my kind of Irish hangout. The place is somewhat small, but that helps with its charm.
The food is excellent. I recommend the Guinness meatloaf, or the meatloaf sandwich.

M'Coul's has that classic Irish pub look and feel. It has a nice atmosphere. It has two levels, both inside and outside. The food was very good, especially for a pub and the menu was quite large. The service was very good. Their draft menu focuses on imports and is a decent size. They featured some classic English ales and some Belgian beers as well. My only critique is that it is a little pricey. For example they featured bottles of Two Hearted for $6.00, which seems outrageous. However, I had a great time and hope to go back.

Food was amazing. Thy had a pretty good tap selection and a good off-tap selection but it was pretty expensive compared to other places. They had authentic Irish food...I got the shepherd pie which was awesome. I have only had better shepherds pie at another Irish pub. The place is two stories. Both levels have bars on them. The bar on the bottom level has a better beer selection than the bar at the top.
Other than the grew food and beer the bar has a great atmosphere. There are beer signs and crazy pictures all over the walls which create a fun place to sit and have a beer or watch a sorts game.

Visited in September 2010:
At this point, I think that the previous reviewers have pretty well spelled out the place, except I noted that the place, as far as I know, didn't have any TV's in it, which was for once, was kind of nice.
The atmosphere was good, I think that I visited on a Tuesday or Wednesday night; therefore, not overly crowded, but there were more than a few folks in the place. The service at the bar was good, but sometimes a little slow.
The selection of beer was slightly better than average. As noted by other reviewers, it had your typical "Irish pub" beers, but also had a few that you didn't expect, which was nice. I had a Meantime Coffee Porter, bottle, as Meantime is touch to find in GA and a good brewer.
I had the fish and chips, the fish was nicely done and well seasoned, but it certainly did not wow me in any way. I thought that the prices were reasonable.
Overall, a good place to go and drink and have a good conversation with friend, but I would probably find myself at Natty Greene's more often.

Stopped in here quite awhile back and just couldn't remember the name of the place as I was out drinking a lot that night. Was in Greensboro this weekend and saw it and remembered. Anyways, when you walk up to this location you will notice the brick wall with ivy growing on it. Upon walking in there is a small bar area downstairs or you can walk upstairs and there is another area with TONS of tables and a small bar. The upstairs bar is where I spent my evening this time. The upstairs bar really reminded me of an Irish Pub through-and-through. They only serviced Irish brews and liquors. I had a few Smithwick's while there and then headed out to another location. Didn't get to eat anything, but the food looked to be really good however. Worth stopping in for sure.

Another nice little local pub that I was able to stop in an try. This one seemed to have a nice charm about it as I wondered inside. Small, with a decent sized crowd for mid week, I proceeded to go over to the counter and check out the taps. A greatlakes on tap, nice. DFH, a nattys again, foothills and highland./ Seemed to be a nice local focused selection, Everyone was very friendly and I left with a really good vibe. Overall I would love to check the place out again. Greensboror really does seem to have a really nice scene going here.
