Cheers to the luckiest day of the year!

Forget trying to find that elusive pot of gold. Instead, round up your lads and lassies this St. Patrick's Day and get your drink on...responsibly of course.
Named after the capital of the Republic of Ireland, you can't get anymore Irish than the Dubliner. This Greenville Avenue staple is owned and operated by a native Dubliner who takes pride in its authentic Irish atmosphere and a sweeping selection of imported beers and whiskeys. Try the Toasted Reuben sandwich and wash it down with an ice-cold pint of Guinness.
The beer here may be stout, but you're sure to have a great time. Just wait until you gaze upon their menu that serves 200 different brews and ciders, including 300 whiskeys for those that like to savor every sip. If Guinness doesn't strike your fancy, add Harp, Smithwick's, Murphy's and Beamish to your lexicon of Irish stouts, ales and lagers. FYI – Irish beers tend to have a higher ABV – that's Alcohol by Volume for the newbies out there. Keep that belly happy with pub grub like Shepherd's Pie, Bangers and Mash or the classic Corned Beef and Cabbage.
Make your way to Downtown Dallas for delicious Irish dishes and bottomless taps of your favorite ales. Just a stone throw from Main Street Garden Park, you'll find The Crafty Irishman on the ground floor of the historic Mercantile Building. The Irish Nachos are a must! Or you can enjoy a traditional Irish breakfast all day long with two eggs any style, Irish bacon, sausage and more. Trust me, it's almost impossible to leave here hungry.
This isn't your average neighborhood pub. If the ornate wooden framework doesn't get you in, you'll love the history that spans almost forty years! The woodwork originated from a castle in England that was once own by Peter Townshend of The Who. Their food and drinks are right there with the best of 'em but it's their passion for a good old fashioned Irish party that make this the place to be on St. Patty's Day.
A wise man once told me this was one of the best Irish pubs in Dallas. This popular watering hole in the Knox Henderson neighborhood is always flooded with a crowd looking for a good time, so get in early or have a friend save a table in exchange for a cold pint. If single barrel whiskeys are the equivalent of finding a pot of gold, you found your spot! The Old Monk is happy to share their selection of hand-picked bottles of scotch, bourbon and Irish whiskey that will leave you smiling with every sip. Order one of their famous cheeseboards (arguably the best in Dallas) to snack on while you drink.
