I recommend Seamus McCaffrey’s for a taste of the Emerald Isle in a desert landscape.
I love to head there after an evening at the historic Orpheum Theater for a post-show pitstop with plenty of pints and some Irish classic dishes if you are hungry.
They have plenty of drinks to try, but I have to give a major shoutout to their Flights of Fancy menu, which comes in three flavors: Japanese Whisky, World of Smoke, and my favorite, Rare Whiskey Lover.
The Bushmills 21-Year-Old is smooth and highly drinkable.

Dubliner is a cozy little Irish Pub tucked away from the downtown commotion.
I like to stop by for some genuinely delicious Irish fare and a game of darts, but they also offer billiards, trivia, and shuffleboard if that’s more your style.
Order the Guiness-Braised Beef with carrots, onions, mashed potatoes, and Irish soda bread, then pair it with a creamy pint of the most iconic beer on the Eire for Arizona’s most authentic Dublin experience.

Next time you’re cruising through Old-Town Tempe, stop by Casey Moore’s Oyster House for fresh seafood and friendly faces.
Their red-brick building is a real charmer that only improves when you take in all the memorabilia waiting inside. Or you can sit outside.
While Casey’s doesn’t boast an enormous bar menu compared to the rest of my list of the best Irish pubs in Phoenix, their selection speaks to the value of deciding on your selection carefully.
They have plenty of local suds, including a pillowy Four Peaks WOW Wheat from Tempe.
Or join them for mimosas for a small weekend brunch menu!

Murphy’s Law is proudly “traditional, not trendy,” which shows in its commitment to creating an authentic Irish pub experience.
I can’t help but grin every time I drive into downtown Chandler, knowing that I’m about to experience a lot of fun.
Their menu has the standard Irish plates, but try some Irish nachos or Irish mac and cheese if you love corned beef in everything!
When choosing your libations, I recommend The Irish Captain for a fruity fusion of Captain Morgan rum and ginger beer.
If you prefer a brew on draft, they have over two dozen options, including an A+ Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale.
They have many unique concoctions here at their bar to try something unique and different.

Tim Finnegan’s might be a pub-style eatery, but they go out of their way to make every family member feel welcome.
I’ve never met a server there who didn’t have a genuinely warm smile and plenty of suggestions for the newest specials they thought I’d enjoy.
They even host regular events. Speaking of specials, Tim Finnegan’s has a killer Irish Coffee that you should try if you’re burnt out on pints of brews from abroad.
To make the experience even better, order their Corned Beef Sliders for an app, then Bangers & Mash for dinner.

With a 33-year history of bringing the best of local talent and Irish fare together under one roof, O’Connor’s Pub is one of my favorite spots for kickstarting a night out.
It’s also near the Metrocenter Mall, so I can always count on them for comfort food after a long shopping day.
The last time I stopped by, I ordered a draft of their Black Butte Porter, followed by a Jucifer IPA.
I stuck with some delicious starters, including Bavarian Pretzel Bites dipped in dark ale mustard and Beer Battered Cheese Curds.

Anytime someone mentions Glendale for brunch, you can guarantee that I’ll insist on Padre Murphy’s near the Arrowhead Towne Center.
You’ll have to go on the weekend, but it’s worth the wait for an order of their Corned Beef Hash.
With 20 beers on tap, heading straight for the draft menu is tempting, but I recommend looking at their breakfast drinks menu.
It is 14 cocktails deep with a savory Loaded Bloody Mary and Breakfast in Bed (which features a slice of bacon) among the ranks.

Phoenix was lucky the day that Chambers decided to put down roots near the Phoenix Center for Arts in Roosevelt Row and start serving a more modern “Bohemian” Irish pub experience that hasn’t lost any of its welcoming friendliness.
Where other Irish pubs tend to emphasize their brews, Chambers puts a lot of love into their whiskey collections.
You have to splurge on a Luxury Flight at least once, as it features some seriously rare pours: Balvenie 40, Buffalo Trace O.C.F., and Louis XIII.
