Top Irish Bars in Portland

Top Irish Bars in Portland

Ireland and Portland share three defining characteristics: good beer, great whiskey and constantly drizzling rain. Here are our picks for the top bars to raise your glass to honor the rich liquid heritage we share with our cousins from across the Atlantic. 

Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub: From the cigar room down in the iconic Portland tunnels to the live Timbers games, Kells has something for every Portlander. This year, the largest Irish Pub in Portland is also offering the largest St. Patrick’s party in town! Come out for live music, dance, and even amateur USA vs Ireland boxing matches (112 SW 2nd Ave; 503-227-4057).

County Cork Public House: This NE spot is here to remind you what “public house” really means. Bring your kids, your dog and your friends out to this NE spot to experience the warmth of a good old-fashioned neighborhood Irish pub (1329 NE Fremont St; 503-284-4805).

 

Biddy McGraws: Nothing brings people together like the perfect mix of bar games, beer and live music. Whether you are new in town or just looking to meet new people, head out to this famously friendly neighborhood watering hole (6000 NE Glisan; 503-233-1178).

 

Leaky Roof: If you’re looking for a relaxing night of comfort food and beer then head over to this more intimate Irish pub. Not all pubs have to be loud and boisterous so grab a pint, take a breath, and enjoy the softer side of Portland’s Irish community (1538 SW Jefferson St; 503-222-3745).

 

Katie O’Brien’s: If you’ve been search for a sports pub to call home then make sure to stop in at Katie O’Brien’s. Even as early as 8 AM you can find multiple TVs, over 30 beers on tap and a classic greasy spoon breakfast that makes waking up early to support your favorite soccer team all worthwhile (2809 NE Sandy Blvd; 503-234-8573).

 

Paddy’s Bar and Grill: If you’ve got any Fighting Irish in you, put on your colors and stop by the official meeting location of the Notre Dame Club of Portland to catch a game and a pint with your fellow leprechauns (65 SW Yamhill St; 503-224-5626).
