Visit The Best Irish Pubs On The Strip
1. Get a Taste of Ireland at Nine Fine Irishmen at New York-New York Hotel and Casino
Nine Fine Irishmen isn’t just a nod to Irish history, it’s a piece of it. This lively pub was built in Ireland, disassembled, and rebuilt in the New York-New York Hotel & Casino. The lore of the bar surrounds the story of nine Irish freedom fighters who were exiled by the British monarchy. These folk heroes are honored as symbols of defiance and rebellion in pubs around the world, including at Nine Fine Irishmen. With traditional Irish foods like colcannon soup and shepherd’s pie, you can get a taste of Ireland at one of the most authentic Irish pubs this side of the Atlantic.
2. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Year-Round at O’Sheas at The LINQ Promenade
O’Sheas Irish Pub is the place to go if you’re looking for green drinks and a rowdy night. This party pub is less like a quaint Irish bar and more like the set of Leprechauns Gone Wild. O’Sheas manages to fit three bars, a variety of games and beer pong tables in the fairly small space. If that’s not enough, they have a separate outdoor bar area where you can get some fresh air. The shamrock decor must be lucky because this mini-casino has cheap activities and even cheaper drinks.
3. Enjoy a Guinness at Tilted Kilt at The LINQ Promenade
Tilted Kilt in the LINQ Promenade is the place to go if you want classic Irish fare at an American sports bar. Don’t expect a neighborhood pub when you’re going to Tilted Kilt. Instead, think more along the lines of Hooters, but with more plaid. This bar has a different drink special each day of the week and enough televisions to entertain any sports fan. Be sure to check out Tilted Kilt on a game or match day for the full experience.
4. Step into Old Ireland at Rí Rá at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino
Whether you’re looking for fish and chips or corned beef and cabbage, head over to Rí Rá at Mandalay Bay for some tasty Irish cuisine. The tavern is filled with artifacts salvaged from pubs in the south of Ireland, so you might just forget that you’re on the Las Vegas Strip. Enjoy their classic Irish dishes alongside your choice of aged whiskey. As hotel restaurants go, you’ll have a hard time finding one with a more homey atmosphere than Rí Rá’s.
5. Dance Until You’re Knackered at McFadden’s located in Town Square
Is it a sports bar, a nightclub, a restaurant or a hookah lounge? The answer is all of the above.
McFadden’s has a food and drink menu that’s as pleasantly chaotic as the bar’s identity. With a menu ranging from quesadillas to bangers and mash, even the pickiest eaters in your party can find something they’ll like. That being said, McFadden’s is more like a Vegas bar than an Irish pub—see their weekend dress code of “fashionable upscale attire.” Dress to impress and get ready to party at this festive Irish-style bar, located in Town Square.

6. Grab a Pint and Catch a Game at McMullan’s Irish Pub
The crew at McMullan’s Irish Pub are the self-titled Purveyors of the Perfect Pint. Open 24 hours and offering vegan and gluten-free options, McMullan’s has the vibe of an Irish pub and the portions of an American restaurant. You can try Nanny Mac’s shepherd’s pie or just have an appetizer, known as a chéad chursa in Irish. Sit back and enjoy your meal while watching a game for one of the 11 international sports leagues that McMullan’s shows. This bar is the perfect place to take a break from the excitement of the Strip without venturing too far from the action.
7. Visit Hennessey’s Tavern for Irish Hospitality
Hennessey’s Tavern is the only Irish bar on Fremont Street in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas. The moderately-priced food and drinks pair well with the dimly-lit, casual atmosphere to mimic a true Irish pub. Enjoy a $5 happy hour drink and some Irish nachos in a relaxed environment that you can only find off the Strip. Hennessey’s Tavern is a place for good conversation, warm food and cold beer.
