This St. Patrick’s Day, make your friends and family green with envy when you suggest one of Wisconsin’s best Irish hotspots to celebrate the holiday. Traditional fare and a multitude of beverages are sure to warm your heart and spirit at these fine establishments.

Brocach – Madison

Voted one of the Top Ten Irish Pubs in America by the Huffington Post, this traditional, yet modern Irish pub is a go-to for Irish delicacies. Appropriately named for Madison, Brocach (Gaelic for “badger den”) serves brunch through a late night menu. Here you’ll enjoy Guinness-steamed mussels, Scotch Eggs, the Dublin City burger and a hearty Irish Stew, as well as unusual whiskeys and lively music that will make you say “Erin go bragh” before you leave.

County Clare Irish Restaurant – Milwaukee

Nestled in a boutique bed and breakfast in downtown Milwaukee you’ll find this authentic Irish haven celebrating traditional cuisine, culture and travel. Enjoy classic dishes such as Corned Beef and Cabbage and Bangers and Mash or signature items like Grandma Flanigan’s Guinness Pot Roast, Irish Root Soup and Braden Smoked Salmon.  And while you’re enjoying these delicious dishes, you find yourself wondering what they’d taste like IN Ireland, you’re in luck. You can actually book a trip to Ireland through the restaurant’s parent company Harp and Eagle Limited. 

Dublin’s Pub – Oshkosh

Proud to bring a wee bit o’ Ireland to Oshkosh, Dublin’s Irish Pub is a cozy “tabhairne” (tavern-house) that serves up the genuine Irish experience. Stop in to enjoy classic dishes such as fish and chippers and Irish stew with soda bread. But, first start with Irish-inspired appetizers such as Bangers Boats, Reuben Rolls and Guinness cheese dip. You don’t need any luck to pair your meal with a great beer, as Dublin’s offers 28 craft selections to ensure your taste buds are satisfied and your Irish eyes are smiling.

Kitty O’Reillys Irish Pub – Sturgeon Bay

A new version of old Ireland, located near Sturgeon Bay’s marina and boutiques, Kitty O’Reillys pub offers an extensive selection of tasty Irish food items and plenty of beers and wines to wash them down. It’s no wonder this Irish gem is a local favorite. Indulge in their award-winning Black Beer Chili, or tuck in for a Galway Irish Ale-battered Fish Sandwich and Dublin Slaw.
