Whether you’re looking for something festive to do for St. Patrick’s Day in Las Vegas or you’ve just got a hankering for a pint of Guinness and a shot of Jameson, there are plenty of Irish pubs to choose from in Sin City. That being said, not all drinking establishments are created equal. To help you narrow it down, we’ve compiled this list of the best Irish pubs in Las Vegas (both on and off the Strip).

Hennessey’s Tavern

Fremont Street

A drink at Hennessey’s Tavern is a can’t miss if you’re hanging out downtown. No need for directions—just keep an eye out for the giant glass of Bass Pale Ale as you walk up or down Fremont Street. This cozy tavern offers happy hour every weekday from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., breakfast on the weekends, and a full lunch and dinner menu every day. Hennessey’s also has live music, plenty of wine and spirits, and an impressive Irish whiskey collection.

McFadden’s Restaurant & Saloon

Town Square

McFadden’s isn’t exactly what you’d call a traditional Irish pub, but it remains a popular bar for locals and tourists alike. During the week, this laidback American Irish bar and restaurant serves up familiar favorites like fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, and bangers and mash, along with a full drink menu. After 10:00 p.m. on weekends, McFadden’s transforms into the ultimate party spot, with DJs, dancing, hookah stations, and more. If Irish nachos and bottle service sound like a winning combination, this is the place for you.

McMullan’s Irish Pub

Off Strip

Located right next to the Orleans Hotel and Casino, McMullan’s is among the best Irish pubs in Las Vegas. As self-described “purveyors of the perfect pint”, McMullan’s Irish Pub prides itself on its hospitality and authenticity.

This off-Strip bar also offers live music, an outdoor patio, video poker, and keno in a relaxed atmosphere perfect for meeting up with friends or family.

Nine Fine Irishmen

New York New York Hotel & Casino

Irish pubs are an integral part of Manhattan’s culture, so it’s no wonder that New York New York has one of the finest on the Strip. Nine Fine Irishmen was literally built in Ireland and then shipped all the way to Las Vegas. Named for a group of Irishmen who fought for Ireland’s independence in 1848, a visit here will transport you in time and place. Indulge in Irish comfort foods like shepherd’s pie made with port wine-infused ground beef, bangers and garlic mashed potatoes, plus fish and chips.

LINQ Promenade

Like McFadden’s, O’Sheas Casino & Pub is among the best Irish pubs in Las Vegas for partying. Located at the LINQ Promenade, O’Sheas has been a Las Vegas Strip favorite since 1988, even after moving locations in 2013. This raucous Irish-style pub and casino has low minimum table games, live nightly music, an outdoor bar area, and an unparalleled high-energy social atmosphere. With 3 bars, 50 different beers on tap, and a full menu of libations, your luck won’t run out at O’Sheas.

Rí Rá Irish Pub

Mandalay Bay Hotel

Rí Rá Irish Pub (located inside Mandalay Bay) is about as authentic as it gets on this side of the Atlantic. With live music performances, a dim and cozy interior, and more than 60 beers to choose from, Rí Rá can be both a lowkey place to hang out and the perfect setting to let loose and do an Irish jig. Salvaged and reconstructed from a pub in Ireland and shipped across the world, Rí Rá captures the essence of the 19th century Irish pub experience. This bar doesn’t just talk the talk, either—its Whiskey Bar has the best whiskey, bourbon, and scotch collections in Las Vegas according to the Review Journal

Sean Patrick’s Pub & Grill

Locations in North Las Vegas, Spring Valley, & Henderson

Corcoran’s Irish Pub

McCarran International Airport 

We’re not recommending you make a trip to the airport just for a drink, but if you’re waiting for a flight back home and nursing a hangover, Corcoran’s Irish Pub might be just what the doctor ordered.
