The Best Irish Restaurants and Bars in Phoenix to celebrate St. Patrick's Day

March: the first streams of hope pour in promising the beginning of spring. The grass begins to grow back, replacing the brittle brown remnants of years past. While one of my favorite March rituals is grabbing a Shamrock Shake from McDonalds, we have been blessed with the luck of the Irish with St. Patrick's Day falling on Friday, March 17! While many of my friends love to go out when there is an occasion, I need it to fall on a weekend because I am one tired girl. With all that being said, here are my top Phoenix recommendations ahead of the greenest holiday of the year.

The best restaurants, bars and pubs to visit in Phoenix for St. Patricks Day 2023.
Cheers to a successful St. Patrick's Day in Phoenix.

Wally's American Pub 'n Grille is a family-owned, local neighborhood restaurant serving up delicious American comfort food since 2002. Known for homemade specialties like savory meatloaf, tender prime rib sandwiches, mouth-watering burgers, crispy fish and chips, and fresh and flavorful salads, the casual and eclectic Irish-pub style atmosphere makes Wally’s the perfect place to meet friends for a laugh over a pint. The pub has indoor and patio dining, as well as take-out. This will be a much more laid-back experience than a full-blown pub, with their main St. Patricks day celebration happening on Monday the 13th with Corned Beef and Cabbage and $5 green beers on draft!


No matter where you choose to celebrate the Irish in the most American way possible, indulge in an Irish classic and a pint of beer to get a start on the St. Patty’s day Phoenix experience.
