Irish Pubs in Vegas

Vegas is home to multiple Irish pubs where visitors can raise a pint and toast to their Irish heritage, even if it's only imagined as an excuse to grab a Guinness. Regardless of where you're from these laid-back pubs offer a fun, vibrant and friendly atmosphere for enjoying a drinks and hearty meal. Many of them also feature live entertainment. They're good options for celebrating any day of the year, but come St. Patrick's Day these Irish pubs become hotspots for revelers on the hunt for their next shot of Jameson.

 

  • Rí Rá at The Shoppes at Mandalay Place: Rather than creating an all-new pub, relics from old Ireland pubs and other outposts were salvaged, restored and retrofitted to become a standing testament to Irish tradition at this pub inside Mandalay Bay. The venue is composed of five sections each with their own distinct pub theme. Along with the authentic fixtures, Rí Rá features an impressive lineup of bands flown in directly from Ireland.
  • Hennessey’s Tavern on Fremont St.: Plenty of beer, fun and live music are on tap for the day. Located downtown underneath a giant pint of Bass, this is where you can order the world’s largest pint. Served in a souvenir glass, you’ll definitely want nurse this 64-ounce behemoth beer – or else you’ll be nursing a hangover the next day!
  • Nine Fine Irishmen at New York-New York: Another authentic import, this bar was completely assembled in Ireland before being disassembled, shipped to Vegas and then reassembled.The bar features a selection of nine draft beers including Guinness, Harp, Boddington's and Newcastle. It also serves a large selection of Irish whiskey from the two most popular distilleries in Ireland: Jameson and Bushmills.
  • McMullan’s Irish Pub at 4650 W. Tropicana Ave.: Family-owned and operated, the pub occupies a fairly big space, half-sandwiched between a gas station and The Orleans. Highlights include live music and an outdoor patio area.
  • McFadden's Restaurant & Saloon at Town Square features a huge mahogany bar, which means getting one of the dozens of draft and bottled beers McFadden's serves up is easy -- as is dancing atop it. Among the signature libations are 80-ounce fishbowl cocktails. McFadden's also has a "bomb" shots menu, and Fireball Cinnamon Whisky is on tap. If the thought of dancing and drinking the night away makes you a little hungry, be sure to check out McFadden's restaurant menu, which features modern Irish items and other creative pub-style fare -- like Dublin Rolls, the Pickle Back Burger and the Lasagna Bun Burger.
  • J.C. Wooloughan Irish Pub at Rampart Hotel and Casino: The pub is based on its creator's life in Dublin. Wooloughan, a global businessman, went so far as to have the pub built in Ireland by the Irish Pub Company and sent over in pieces. Every little detail from the wood and the tiles to the decorations is authentic. The pub features any kind of Irish drink you can imagine from Irish coffee, Blackthorn Cider and a variety of Irish whiskeys to popular beers such as Harps and Guinness.
  • O'Sheas casino and bar, located in front of The LINQ hotel, is an Irish-themed gaming joint that originally opened in 1989 and closed its doors on April 30, 2012. The new incarnation of O'Sheas boasts two indoor bars – the central Dublin Up Bar and the corner Lucky Bar. Guests can order a variety of Irish, European and domestic beers here. There are some draft beers for $3 and shots for $5 as well as creative cocktails (like the St. Peppermint Patty, the Pot of Gold and the Irish Margarita, which is made with whiskey).
