St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us, and that means it is time to break out the shamrocks and get ready to party Irish style! There’s no better time of year to celebrate the rich culture of Ireland, and no better place in Orange County than an authentic Irish pub. You’ll get the feel of the old country and before long, you’ll be feeling the luck of the Irish! Try one of these local Irish pubs to enjoy a piece of the Emerald Isle.
The Auld Dubliner
Happy hour indeed at the fun and laid back Irish pub, The Auld Dubliner. They have a large food menu and a large selection of beers, both of which will impress you. While it may be more directed toward the younger crowd, they have a thrilling atmosphere that inspires all of their guests to have a good time at their pub. Go ahead and be a hooligan here and enjoy their Hooligan Tacos.
Don’t be fooled by their humble exterior! Durty Nelly’s has amazing and creative food options to go with their beers on tap. All Irish pubs have corned beef and cabbage – that’s a given. But Nelly’s took an Irish classic and created the Corned Beef and Cabbage Sandwich! Give them, and their epic sandwich, a try.

Muldoon’s Irish Pub is a place to brag about! And they know it, too. They have many great reviews boasting their spacious and friendly environment suitable for big groups that feel at home here. Muldoon’s is a family favorite. Their friendly and warm staff welcomes everyone to enjoy their drafts, wine selection, and fabulous food. Stop by and see what the hype is all about!
