The John Barry Restaurant and Bar
“The John Barry Restaurant and Bar serves a unique blend of traditional Irish fare and local Maryland favorites. One of the best Happy Hours in Annapolis!” Here’s a glowing review from a local: “After living in Annapolis for 12 years, and putting in 1 month as a “regular” here, I have to say that it’s my favorite bar in town. The staff is incredibly kind and accommodating, and the folks tending bar have outstanding talent in mixology.”
“The Killarney House, in Davidsonville Maryland, features Irish food using fresh, local ingredients and made from family recipes. In addition to our family friendly restaurant, the Killarney also has a pub side. Where you can always get a perfectly poured pint of Guinness or other fine draft from our quality selection. We also have musical entertainment on Friday and Saturday night throughout the year.” Located about 20 minutes away from Annapolis.
O’Loughlin’s Irish Restaurant & Pub
“An Irish restaurant with Maryland style.” Established in 1986, O’Loughlin’s is a down-to-earth place for all. As a TripAdvisor reviewer wrote, “O’s is like family. Tommy’s food is consistent and his staff treats you like family. If you are in the mood for Irish or American favorites…this is the place!”
St. Patrick was a gentleman
Who through strategy and stealth
Drove all the snakes from Ireland.
Here’s toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings
Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good St. Patrick
And see all those snakes again.
