Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub

Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub in Milton and Brookhaven features a menu of upscale Irish pub food paired with pints and spirits. This restaurant has the look and feel of a classic Irish pub. It was even the first pub in the United States to win the Irish Pub of the Year award from the Irish Pubs Global Federation of Dublin, Ireland. They serve Irish-inspired pub fare, including an all-day Irish breakfast, Saturday and Sunday brunch specials like Corned Beef Hash, and dinner entrees like a Kilkenny Rueben.

Keegan’s Irish Pub

Keegan’s Irish Pub has three locations throughout Atlanta: one in Kennesaw, one in Vinings, and one in Woodstock. This pub offers an Old World atmosphere and award-winning Irish fare. You can enjoy live entertainment, weekend brunch, and trivia nights. The family-friendly pub offers a menu of Irish-American dishes like shepherd’s pie, Ruebens, burgers, and pot roast. They also offer plenty of Guinness on tap and patio dining.

Fadó Irish Pub

Fadó Irish Pub has two Atlanta locations: one in Buckhead and the other in Midtown. “Fadó” (pronounced f’doe) is Irish for “long ago” and is traditionally used to start a story, and the restaurant aims to tell the story of Ireland’s rich and ever-evolving pub culture. The menu at this pub features dozens of international and local beers, Irish standards, and a few original dishes. This is also a great place to watch sports on TV, mainly soccer, and enjoy some great whiskey.
