Meet the Owner: The Irishmen Pub in Everett


Experience a true Irish Pub in the heart of downtown Everett.

It’s not a restaurant, it’s not a bar. It is an authentic Irish Pub and this fall will celebrate 10 years in downtown Everett.

The Irishmen is a family owned business operated by Barry and Heather Boyle. Born in Belfast and after working at landmark Seattle Irish establishments for a number of years Barry Boyle wanted to open his own truly authentic Irish Pub. In 2007 Boyle found Everett to be the right size and it had the affordability that he couldn’t find in Seattle. It took a bit but he found the perfect spot in the heart of downtown Everett. In 2007 The Irishmen opened as the great recession began and while it hasn’t been easy the Boyles have grown the business over the years and now own their building.

So how does an Irish Pub maintain success over a decade when restaurants on either side of it have come and gone? “We’re authentic,” said Barry. “Everything here is homemade and a lot of the recipes are straight from my mother’s kitchen when I was growing up in Belfast.” They even bake their own bread and buns.


Live Irish music every Monday night from 7 – 10 PM.

The authentic Irish of this Pub extends well beyond the kitchen. There is an unmatched selection of Irish drink at the bar and every Monday night from 7 – 10 PM musicians come from around the Puget Sound to play traditional Irish music. Between ten and twenty players come together in a circle playing a variety of instruments and making amazing music. There is no cover charge, you can come enjoy a drink, a great meal or a homemade dessert and soak in the Irish atmosphere.

While the menu consists of traditional favorites like Shepherd’s Pie, Colcannon and Bangers and Mash there are also plenty of traditional american favorites including burgers, steaks and even macaroni and cheese. If you’re looking for food in downtown Everett after 8:00 pm their kitchen is open until midnight seven days a week.

This could be Everett’s best club sandwich and The Irishmen Everett’s kept lunch secret.

The Irishmen features an affordable express lunch to get you quickly in and out offering half portions of traditional favorites along with great sandwiches, salads and vegetarian selections.

A little known feature of The Irishmen, breakfast is served every Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM. They also have one of the best Happy Hours in Everett seven days a week from 3 – 6 PM with specials on drinks and food plus indoor and outdoor seating. A second happy hour runs from 10 PM – Midnight with special offers just on food.

Tuesday night is trivia night hosting one of the livelier trivia contests in the area. You’ll also find special musical performances every month along with lots of charity events throughout the year for organizations like the Animal Rescue Foundation and Everett Animal Shelter. The staff is friendly and fun (in fact they are growing and looking for more employees if you know someone who may be interested).

Barry and Heather Boyle both say they see things improving in downtown Everett with the addition of the Marriott Hotel and re-location of Funko offices as two of the latest positive steps. Don’t wait for St. Patrick’s Day to visit the Irishmen at 2923 Colby Avenue in downtown Everett. It’s a chance to experience a true Irish Pub without ever leaving Everett.
