Irish pubs in Monmouth County?
I was going to ask for folks' thoughts comparing St Stephen's Green and Harrigan's ... but over the weekend realized how many Irish bars/taverns/pubs there are in the area, and thought I'd solicit impressions on the good, the bad, and the empty chairs ....
I like Irish food, and the Irish Breakfast at St Stephen's was pretty good. Also like a good pour of stout ... but a good beer selection beyond that, as well.
I am not an Irish Pub kind of guy however I can tell you from my experience on the board McDonough's in Keyport and the Dublin House in Red Bank are probably two of the favorites. Good luck!
Definitely a winner except if there's a big game on Sunday afternoon !
Family oriented and Irish music some Sundays and their menu is decent . I'm no fish eater but I have a hard time getting past their fish and chips - fresh cod well cooked and tasty fries .
Good beer selection .
Street parking .
McDonough's, Dublin House, CelticCottage, Kelly's, Rod's... all decent bars, but just because there's Guinness and Tullamore Dew at the bar and Sligos on the menu it's not necessarily a true Irish pub. Nor is St. Stephen's a true Irish pub but IMHO it's the closest in the area.
