DFW Irish Pubs

By

Ready to get your Irish on? DFW has many great Irish bars and restaurants where you can celebrate St. Patrick's Day or any day. You can expect a warm, friendly atmosphere filled with hearty laughter and toasts from the Emerald Isle. But don't expect to hear your cellphone ring. Sláinte!

By the way, the popular toast is actually pronounced "slaan-sha." It literally translates as "health". It's used as a short toast among drinking buddies that means "I drink to your health!"

Delaney's Irish Pub & Grill

Where: 6150 W Eldorado Pkwy., Suite 120, McKinney, TX 75070. 972-547-2222

What: This is a family-owned Irish Pub. The amazing menu includes breakfast items that will put an "O" before your sir name. Try some Irish Eggs Benedict (2 homemade potato cakes topped with a hard boiled egg wrapped in seasoned sausage that has been rolled in bread crumbs and fried to golden brown. Finished with hollandaise sauce) or The Hungry Irishman (2 Irish bangers, 4 slices of smoked bacon, 2 fried or scambled eggs, 2 slices of Texas toast, 2 potato cakes and baked beans). Now that's a hearty breakfast. Great kids menu too (pancakes, french toast, mac n cheese n ham). Traditional Irish foods like bangers 'n mash, Guinness Stew, Corned Beef 'n Cabbage and much more. I'm hungry now just writing about it.

The Fillmore Pub

Where: 1004 E. 15th Street, Plano, TX 75074. 972-423-2400

What: This Pub may lean more toward a European-style pub but the bartender told me they are heavily weighted in the Irish department. Their website features a photograph of a cold glass of Guinness and listed six Irish whiskies, so that's close enough for me.

The Idle Rich

Where: 2614 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, TX 75204. 214-965-9926

A wide selection of Belgian, English and German beers, 60 single malt scotch choices, and pub classics like fish and chips, Shepherd's Pie and Guiness Pie. Darts and British billiards, live music. You can tell The Idle Rich is a real Irish bar. They host a 2-day tent party to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! Now that's showing your Irish spirit in Uptown.
