Dallas Pubs

Check out some of the best places to enjoy a pint at one of the many pubs in the city. 

Harwood Arms

Guinness, Irish Whiskey and fish and chips served in a dark wooden-panel bar. Does it get any more Irish than that? Opened in Dec. 2020, Harwood Arms is the latest addition to the European-styled cobblestone alleyway at the north end of the Harwood District.

Old Monk

With draft beers from England, Ireland, Germany and Belgium and nearly 70 bottled beers from around the world, the beer selection at this British-style pub will satisfy the pickiest of beer drinkers. The menu for Irish Whiskey is not bad either. The Dublin-born pub owner curated a selection of scotch, bourbon and Irish whiskey that will pair perfectly with the traditional Irish fare like corned beef & cabbage, Irish reubens, beef stew, and bread pudding. If Irish food is not your thing, the cheeseburger is quite possibly the best burger in town. Just make sure you order a Guinness to go along with it to up your Irish cred.


This pint-sized pub on Lower Greenville is the oldest Irish bar in Dallas. With its motto 'where bad decisions lead to good times', the Dubliner is usually ground zero for the St. Paddy's Day Parade. The pub owner, a native Dubliner himself, takes great pride in the quality of their draught Guinness, which is said to be the best in town.

Blackfriar Pub

Head over to Uptown's Blackfriar Pub and grab a seat on the deck of the front-yard beer garden, order a frozen Irish Coffee and watch what is sure to be an entertaining afternoon of revelers looking for luck in all the wrong places.

Playwright Irish Pub

The Playwright is one of Dallas’ newest pubs. They offer countless whiskeys, beers on tap and delicious Irish food that you can count on from a pub like this. Enjoy a dinner of bangers and mash followed by a dessert of Guinness ice cream in the heart of the Arts District.

The Irishman Pub

With close to a gazillion televisions, the Irishman Pub is known as the go-to destination to watch soccer, rugby and other oversea sports matches. While not everything on the menu is traditional Irish grub, (looking at you Mini Mac & Cheese Bacon Donuts), one can find Potato Leek Soup and Shepherd's Pie in between all the American-style bar food.
