The Top 10 Irish Pubs in Philly

brittinghams irish pub The Top 10 Irish Pubs in PhillySt Patty’s Day Feature: The Best Irish Bars in Philadelpia

By Pat Smith, Jeremy Thomson and Matt Goldstein

In honor of St. Patty’s Day and the greatest city in the world, Whiskey Goldmine has compiled our list of the best Irish Pubs and the best Irish Taverns in the city of Philadelphia.  With its authentic Irish food, Irish music and craft beer, Philadelphia offers a truly historical and unique take on the Irish Pub, with one of our favorite bars even dating back to 1763.  With a very large Irish population, Philadelphia is one of the best Irish Pub experiences in the United States.   

1. McGlinchey’s Bar & Grill

It wasn’t too long ago when McGlinchey’s served 50 cent Black & Tans & 25 cent hot dogs.  This Rittenhouse gem gets a lot of broke college kids and starving artists through some real tough times with that authentic pub feel.  One of the best spots in the city period.  259 S 15th St. Philadelphia, PA.

McGillan’s has been pouring beers in the same spot since 1860.  This is one of the most authentic Irish pubs in the country, let alone Philadelphia.  1310 Drury St, Philadelphia, PA.

3.  Brittingham’s

Much older than McGillian’s, Brittingham’s has been pouring beers and playing Irish music since 1763.  Along with the General Lafayette Brewery, Brittingham’s offers a historical and warming character to Lafayette Hill.  They have great live Irish music and nothing’s better than drinking half and half at Brittingham’s on St. Patty’s Day or kicking the crap out of a bunch of chumps in Quizzo.  640 E. Germantown Pike, Lafayette Hill, PA.

I’ll never forget my 21st birthday when already bombed, we walked into Fergie’s and the bartender poured me three shots for my birthday.  I told the bartender that if I drank the triple shot that I would throw up.  The bartender shrug his shoulders as if he did not care.  Needless to say…  1214 Sansom St, Philadelphia, PA.

5.  Plough & the Stars

Plough and the Stars has the most authentic and mouth-watering Irish food in the city and great live Irish music.  2nd St in Old City, Philadelphia, PA.

10.  PJ Whelihan’s

Yup, it’s a chain, we know.  But guess what, PJ Whelihan’s has the best craft beer list out of any chain anywhere in the area.  Actually, they have a better craft beer list then a bunch craft beer bars.  That’s not peanuts!  The PJ’s Pub craft beer list is a very educated and critically acclaimed, no question about it.  There are 12 PJ’s Pub locations in the Philadelphia area.
