Samuel Beckett’s Opens in Shirlington

Shirlington’s new Samuel Beckett’s Irish Gastro Pub opened to a capacity crowd Saturday afternoon.

Photos on Shirlington Village blog show people lining up along Campbell Avenue for a chance to check out the the long-anticipated pub, which not only imported building materials from Ireland but also imported actual Irishmen to work there.

The Samuel Beckett’s web site is now live, although much like any restaurant opening there are still some kinks to work out. For one, the title of the home page reads “Samue Becketts.”

The web site also includes a link to a video showing the interior of the new pub.
