Tucked in the corner of Maastricht’s Markt square is Peter’s Irish Pub, a cozy restaurant and bar with plenty of character. I’ll admit that my main reason for going was their advertized weekly trivia night, which happens every Monday, 8pm-11pm. A taste of Irish fare was also a draw and did not disappoint. The staff is friendly and attentive. Menus are in English and are also available on their website. We tried the Cottage Pie and the Steak and Guinness Pie, which were both delicious and filling. There are also burgers, soups and salads on the menu for those not so interested in the Irish food. The beer menu includes, Belgian, Dutch, and Irish beers (including Guinness) and cider. For the unconverted, there is Corona and Budweiser.
Trivia night is a series of several rounds, which is why it takes about 3 hours. The questions were in English, although the host would also give the Dutch words for certain clues when necessary. You can work in teams, so bring your friends for a night of fun. We will be back to try some more of the menu and hopefully improve our trivia rankings in the near future.
