This Manchester Irish Bar Is Opening A Huge New Beer Garden Near Piccadilly Station

By Laura Rogan

It’s opening April 12th!

We always knew April 12th-onwards was going to be epic, but now, Manchester is being blessed with yet another fantastic outdoor boozing space – this time, at O’Shea’s.

Set to open up in Ardwick, near Piccadilly Station, the new site will be O’Shea’s second here in Manchester – with their original Irish pub sitting on Princess Street within the city centre.

Releasing a sneak peek of the brand new open-air space just yesterday, guests will be able to grab a pint underneath their giant pergola, with views of the city around the new garden.

If that wasn’t all, the venue also promises live music and sports throughout the summer, as well as craft ales, cocktails and local street food to enjoy, too.

The co-owner said of the new site: “This is for the people and for the city. We celebrate a return for hospitality and have been given the opportunity to utilise an amazing new outdoor space to come back.


The beers are cold and the welcome is warm. We have missed you all dearly and we can’t wait to see you in the garden!”

The new outdoor bar will be a welcome addition to the city, which while thriving with new open-air spaces, recently lost the iconic Waxy O’Connor’s pub which was located within the Printworks for almost 20 years. The pub silently bowed out from the city’s hospitality scene just a few weeks ago, leaving one less Irish pub in town.
