Irish tavern with traditional live music in the heart of Edinburgh

Whether you're a 'Wild Rover' looking for a resting place or a 'Mollie Malone' needing to put her feet up, Biddy Mulligan's in the Grassmarket is the place for you. Here it is all about the craic and a warm Irish welcome in the centre of Edinburgh.

A stone's throw from Edinburgh Castle, in the popular Grassmarket district and close to the Royal Mile, this highly-popular Irish pub is well-known for its lively atmosphere and traditional live music played every night of the week.

The pub has an outdoor terrace for those warmer days and Biddy's also offers 'The Wee Pub' next door, - Scotland’s smallest pub! With only room for about 20 people 'The Wee Pub' is small in size but huge in atmosphere, it’s the perfect snug to get cosy and catch up with your mates.

For those who are missing their Taytos or Barry's Tea, 'The Grocery Store' at Biddy’s has got you covered bringing Irish products to the capital - grab a pint and get your messages!

The pub is also a great stop off for those looking to watch a game on the television, or to simply enjoy some hearty food and a drink. You can book a table for Sunday Roast (kids menu available), or, to sample a traditional Irish stew or even just for a plate of Nachos. The menu is extensive with vegan and vegetarian options.
