Love this pub. Probably the only true feel "pub" in the Bel Air area. Small but quaint. Experience beers and food from Ireland. I never been to Ireland but feel like this is a typical pub you'd find there. A mostly young "college type" crowd...More

Sean Bolan's has the feel of an actual Irish pub. The place is full of dark wood, and is dimly lit which feels authentic to a real pub. We ate upstairs in the dining area and really enjoyed our food.

The service has always been excellent and everything we have tried so far has been very good! Also a great selection of beer.

Main Street in Bel Air, MD is the sight for this restaurant. Within walking distance from the courthouse. They stock a large variety of beers and have a full bar. The food is prepared well. There are a few tables on the first floor, but...More

I never liked Irish food until I tried Sean Bolan's! I cringed every time I heard my mom had made shepherd's pie growing up, but I could eat Sean Bolan's Shepherd's Pie every day! The stuffed cabbage rolls are also great as well as their...More
