Irish Pubs in Las Vegas provide a fun, differentiated atmosphere when compared to their non-Irish peers.
With most serving traditional Irish fare like bangers, shepherds pie, and fish & chips in addition to a slew of Irish beer, the differentiation extends beyond the decor strategy.
As people frequently seek out Irish bars in Las Vegas, I thought it would be fun to put together a directory of options both on the Strip, and on Fremont Street.
Irish Pubs On The Strip
Nine Fine Irishmen at New York New York: Providing an authentic Irish feel, Nine Fine Irishmen can be found directly on the Strip at NYNY, offering seating both indoors or out.
Of course, I recommend ordering from Nine Fine Irishmen’s “Traditions” menu which features items like Bangers, Fish & Chips, and Shepherd’s Pie served out of a literal bucket.
Beer prices aren’t outrageous either by Strip standards with premium drafts like Guinness, Elysian Space Dust, Harp, and Stella costing $12-$13 for a 20oz.
As a bonus, live music is offered on the patio Friday – Sunday and inside during the week.

Ri Ra at Mandalay Bay: Emulating the feel of an Irish pub from the mid-1800s, Ri Ra leverages materials and decor that have been sourced from Ireland.
In addition to an authentic vibe, Ri Ra boasts an extensive whiskey selection in addition to a well-regarded fish & chips dish made from haddock as opposed to cod.
Food options are also surprisingly affordable for a restaurant on the strip with items like Shepherd’s Pie, Bangers and Mash, Corned Beef and Cabbage, and Beef and Guinness stew – Most of which land at a sub $25 price point.
More importantly than food, a pint of Guinness costs $8.75, with most beer options selections costing slightly less.
After dinner and drinks, stop into the Guinness store next door for one-of-a-kind merchandise.
O’Sheas at LINQ: O’Sheas is an Irish bar on the strip that doubles as a small, yet lively, casino.
In my humble opinion, there are 3 main reasons to stop at O’Sheas. The first is their signature Frozen Baileys cocktail which is akin to an alcohol-infused malt.
Second, they are one of the few bars in Las Vegas with beer pong.
Lastly, the craps game just inside the doors as you enter from the LINQ promenade commonly attracts a fun and rambunxious crowd.
Of course, they also offer the full assortment of Irish beer, which is typically comped if you’re pecking away at a bartop video poker machine.
Tilted Kilt in the LINQ Promenade: Tilted Kilt may lack the authentic theming that other Las Vegas Irish pubs possess, but they still offer a selection of Irish beers and dishes like Fish & Chips.
In addition to Irish fare, Tilted Kilt also offers a menu similar to those at other American sports bars. If you are looking for a laid-back spot to sip a Guinness while catching the game, Tilted Kilt could be the answer.
Irish Pubs on Fremont Street
Hennessey’s Tavern: Located in downtown Las Vegas, Hennessey’s is the only Irish pub on Fremont Street. While Hennessey’s serves Irish dishes such as Fish & Chips and Sheperd’s Pie, they also offer an assortment of burgers and sandwiches as part of their menu.
Notably, Hennessey’s offers live music most nights from 9:30 pm – 1:30 am and you can view the live entertainment schedule here.
Other notable Irish Pubs in Vegas
McMullan’s Irish Pub: Although located away from the Strip, McMullan’s is adored by many who visit Las Vegas. Found near The Orleans, McMullan’s offers food items like Irish Stew, Irish Pies, Fish & Chips, Corned Beef & Cabbage, and Shepherd’s Pie in addition to traditional bar fare.
Of course, the full assortment of Irish beer is served as well. Most importantly to the degenerates reading this though, they offer bartop video poker.
Hopefully, I was able to help you in your quest to find Irish pubs in Las Vegas either on the Strip or on Fremont Street! After all, few things ease the sting of gambling losses better than a Guinness alongside some Fish & Chips.
I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
