To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, they are hosting a two day event with outdoor parties featuring live music, good eats, Irish dancers, and bagpipes. There’s something for everyone! Neighbors seem to share this sentiment, as 126 neighborhoods have crowned Doherty’s as a Nextdoor Neighborhood Favorite!

Old Brogue Irish Pub – Washington, D.C.

Old Brogue is a truly a family affair as the Kearney family has owned and operated the pub since its opening, which was on St. Patrick’s Day back in 1981. The Old Brogue (which means “the old style accent” or “the old shoe” in Gaelic) makes everyone feel welcome with its friendly staff and service. Old Brogue has an extensive Irish food menu too– don’t forget to order their corned beef and cabbage or beef stew!

Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub – Atlanta, GA

Neighbors love this local pub with its extensive food and beverage menu and decor that takes you back 300 years. Neighbors especially love their Irish brunch, so don’t miss out on their Irish Benedict, corned beef hash, and their quiche of the day which is made with specialty Irish cheese. This pub was also crowned as Irish Pub of the Year in 2015 by the Irish Pubs Global Federation of Dublin, Ireland. It’s no wonder they are a Neighborhood Favorite in 91 neighborhoods.

Quigley’s Irish Pub – Chicago, IL

Quigley’s is not to be missed if you are in the Chicago area. Quigley’s takes the Gaelic term craic (a feeling of fun, good conversation, music, and food) very seriously and designed their space to ensure great craic. The pub was designed, built, and shipped over from Ireland, and the custom glasswork was hand etched and colored. When you step in, you’ll notice their antique fireplace and bookcases–these were also brought over from Ireland along with the original Irish prints hung on the walls. Grab a pint, kick back, and enjoy the craic of Quigley’s.

Finnegan’s Marin Restaurant & Bar – Marin County, CA

Finnegan’s has been a staple in Marin County since 2006, with its inviting environment and community-oriented events. It’s also open 365 days a year, so you can drop in any time to try one of their draught & bottled beers, locally fed wines, and selection of Irish Whiskey. They also have a lengthy food menu with authentic eats to try. This place is also child-friendly– in fact, kids eat free all day on Sunday!
