Ballydoyle is a new pub that has opened in the past few months. But if you stop in you will thing that the place has been there all along. From their top notch food menu, to their cozy little nooks. You will feel at home the instant you step through the front doors. Also don't miss the Trinity Irish Dancers. They practice and perform at the pub.

  • The Claddagh
    1702 Commons Dr. Geneva
    (630)208-0337
    Manager: Steve
                                                              
I've been to The Claddagh several times and can say with certainty that The Claddagh is a great place to enjoy an evening out. Stop for dinner, a snack, or just have a pint from one of their many choices of beer and ale. And if you're lucky there may even be live music for the evening. While you're there ask for Steve. He's one of the managers. And he makes all the arrangements for entertainment. Ask him to show you the chill bar. It keeps your beer, mixed drink or even soda cold for the drinking. For more info, stop at their website, www.claddaghirishpubs.com

More of a theme pub than anything. Like a mini-Fado. Great food, friendly staff, in the middle of a mall complex. They have really put a lot of money into this place. It's a bit pricey (you would think you were downtown), but if you are in the area, it's one of the best options... Check out their web page at...  www.curraghpub.com  (Thanks Pat...)

  • Emmett's Tavern & Brewing Co.
    128 W. Main St. West Dundee
    (847)428-4500
    Managers: Michael & Timothy Burns
Andrew and Matthew Burns along with their father, Timothy, purchased Hunt's Block Bldg. in 1998. They completely renovated the classic old building and transformed it into one of the premier restaurants in the area. And to assure success. They named it after Timothy's father, Emmett Burns. Today Emmett's Tavern and Brewing Co. is home to Dundee's first small brewery. I stepped into Emmett's on one of their Irish Nights (First Thursday of every month). And was treated to some of the finest food I had eaten in a long time. To go along with my meal I tried the Centennial Amber Ale. A very good choice. And to top off the evening. We had entertainment by the famous Irish performer Seamus O'Kane. But don't you wait for Irish Night to stop at Emmett's. Stop in as soon as you can. You won't be disappointed. And don't forget to stop at their website for the latest in news and entertainment. www.emmettstavern.com

For a genuine feel of the 'Ol Sod', you can't beat Horan's. When you stop be sure and try their world famous Snug Burger... Or "The best corn beef in town." That, along with other fine meals makes Horan's a must. Be sure to stop and enjoy a meal and maybe sit in the bear garden for an enjoyable evening...

Cullom & Brendan have probably served pints to the majority of Irish pub goers in the city. They've tended bar in Healey's Westside and Celtic Crossing among other places. Now they're proud to announce that they has opened  their own place in Berwyn and they hopes to see everyone there. So do stop by and wish Cullom & Brendan the best with their new place. And while your there have a pint or two. I was there on opening night and can say it has all the looks and feel of an authentic Irish pub.

    (708)366-8073
    Owners: Kevin Hibbitts and Walter Healey
    Gen. Manager:

Molly Malone's is the newest pub to open on the west side... And it is a real treat. From the main entrance, to the banquet rooms up stairs.  You walk into a vestibule and have the choice of either the main pub area or a smaller, quieter side bar. (Just like in Ireland). The main pub area is nicely divided into sections. There is a main dining area with tables, a stage for music, fire place and cozy nooks... The bar is sectioned off, but you still have a good view of the stage. There is a third section off to the side of the bar for disco. Add to this good food, live music. And what do you have.? A very nice place to spend and enjoyable evening. Check out Molly's web site. www.themollymalones.com

I have been to Peggy's one time... and it took me two days to find my way out. Peggy's is undoubtedly the largest Pub in the western suburb's. Which could work to your advantage, if you like piece and quiet. I'm sure you could find a nice cozy corner to enjoy. Or if you've come with a crowd. There is plenty of room. As for the food, it's everything from Irish Breakfast to Irish Lamb Stew. With soups and salads to embellish the meal. As for entertainment. You will find your favorite music on Saturdays. Be sure to check out their website. www.peggykinnanes.com
