The Skellig in Waltham to Be Replaced by Garcia Brogan's

A popular Irish pub west of Boston is closing its doors, and a Mexican-Irish restaurant and bar will be taking over its space.

A Twitter message from @brandnewwatch indicates that The Skellig in Waltham is shuttering, with Garcia Brogan's moving into its spot on Moody Street. According to a Twitter post from @DowntownWaltham, the new place that is moving in will be a second location of a dining and drinking spot with the same name in Lowell, and it will apparently have a Mexican cantina on one side and an Irish-themed bar on the other, with bands in the back and a DJ and dance floor likely in the front.

The address for The Skellig (and upcoming Garcia Brogan's) is 240 Moody Street, Waltham, MA, 02453. The website for the Lowell location of Garcia Brogan's can be found at http://www.garciabrogans.com/

[May 22, 2015 update: According to a new Twitter post from @brandnewwatch, Garcia Brogan's officially opened today at 5:00 PM. (Thanks to @patriottaxi for bringing this to our attention.)]
