There’s a lot more Gaelic cheer at this bar than just the Guinness on tap. The yummy pub grub is authentic, most of the staff is actually Irish, and it’s never too crowded to nab a table (choose between the vintage woodwork inside and the expansive, open-air patio). Just don’t spread the word too much—we’d hate to wind up ass-to-elbow like at most Lincoln Park McPubs.

This authentic Irish bar makes my McCarthy self so happy! The decor has original Gaelic art, beautiful woodwork and colored glass lamps. This staff is also Irish and serves tasty food! The menu is surprisingly large and not typical pub fare. I got a veggie skewer option with curry sauce, a cheese plate with Irish soda bread and of course Cider! It seems like a more relaxed neighborhood crowd unlike most bars in the area. I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality here.
