Top Irish Bars in Baltimore

Top Irish Bars in Baltimore

Raise your glasses this month and toast St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, with beers, bangers, shamrocks and shades of green. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Baltimore that can aid in your celebration, but these are our top picks for Irish bars in the city.

Claddagh Pub: Named for the enduring Celtic symbol of friendship, loyalty and love, this O'Donnell Square Irish pub is always packed with beer lovers (2918 O'Donnell St.; 410-522-4220).

Dougherty’s Pub: At this unassuming Mt. Vernon bar you can play a game of pool, listen to the eclectic music selection and enjoy any of the 15 beers on tap (223 W. Chase St.; 410-752-4059).

James Joyce Irish Pub: This Harbor East location has Irish favorites like bangers and mash, fish 'n' chips and beef and Guinness stew. There's also an extensive outdoor patio, a perfect place to spend some time as the seasons slowly shift to warmer weather (616 S. President St.; 410-727-5107).

Liam Flynn’s Ale House: Opened in 2011, this Station North pub specializes in ales, whiskeys and ciders from throughout the British Isles (22 W. North Ave.; 410-244-8447).

The Life of Reilly Irish Pub and Restaurant: Live the life of Reilly with this Butcher’s Hill Irish pub. The bar hosts Baltimore’s largest collection of Irish whiskey along with all of the Irish staple beers (2031 E. Fairmount Ave.; 410-327-6425).

Mick O’Sheas: The interior of this Charles Street Irish pub is lined with family crests between dark wood paneling and exposed brick. The live music scene here ranges from Irish rock 'n' roll acts like The Young Dubliners to more traditional Irish music, which pairs well with any beer selection (328 N. Charles St.; 410-539-7504).

Patrick’s Of Pratt Street: Named Best Irish Pub by Baltimore Magazine, Patrick’s is America’s oldest Irish pub. Established in 1847, it was still run by family members of its founders in 1999 when it underwent a historic renovation (934 W. Pratt St.; 443-869-6136).

Ryan’s Daughter: Located up in Belvedere Square, this restaurant and bar features a mix of antiques imported from Ireland in its interior. The menu is a mix of American and Irish dishes including Irish spring rolls and corned beef and cabbage (600 E. Belvedere Ave.; 410-464-1000).

Slainte: Located on the water in Fells Point, Slainte is undoubtedly Baltimore’s best place to watch a rugby match and soccer match. Grab a beer and cheers to good health and a happy St. Patrick’s Day (1700 Thames St.; 410-563-6600).
