Jamaica Plain bid farewell to another Irish pub this week as Eugene O’Neill’s closed its doors at 3700 Washington St. The venue closed down on Saturday, according to Boston Restaurant Talk, continuing to bring down the number of Irish pubs in the neighborhood.
Eugene O’Neill’s first opened in September 2012 and was under the same ownership as Napper Tandy’s in Roslindale. It went the same way as James’s Gate, which closed down on McBride Street in the fall of 2015. But the Irish pub presence in the neighborhood got a boost in March 2017 with the opening of The Gate Bar and Restaurant at 3171 Washington St., as previously reported.
Eater has reached out for more details on the nature of the closure of Eugene O’Neill’s and will provide any updates as they are made available. Meanwhile, Napper Tandy’s remains open.
