If you're planning on celebrating St. Patrick's Day on Greenville Avenue with the rest of Dallas, then there's no better place to drink an Irish beer - think Guinness - than Dubliner on Lower Greenville Avenue. This local Irish pub has been a Dallas institution since 1994, and it's in the center of the action on St. Patrick's Day weekend and day. Year-round, and on St. Patrick's Day, the Dubliner is one of the best neighborhood bars in Dallas, complete with friendly service, strong drinks and a great scene.

Dubliner is owned by a Dallas resident who is a native of Dublin, and the Irish pub features a wide variety of draught beers in the bottle and on tap. You can also choose from a good selection of Irish whiskey and Scotch, perfect to warm any Irishman's (or woman's) heart. It is said to have the best Guinness draught in Dallas, so you can be the judge of that!
It also has a full bar for patrons who are not into celebrating St. Patrick's Day with Irish spirits and beer.
If you arrive hungry, you're in luck - Dubliner has an extensive pub menu with many traditional Irish dishes. On St. Patrick's Day, treat yourself to cheese board with Irish cheese selections like Cashel Blue or Cahill's Irish Porter Cheddar. There are also a wide variety of hot sandwiches and pretzels available.
During the St. Patrick's Day street party, grab a seat on the patio to enjoy some of the finest people watching on this side of the Mississippi. The front patio is such a popular spot, that it's even heated during the colder seasons. The layout inside the pub consists of a bar on one side and tables on the other side.
This small yet quaint spot looks and feels like you're in a pub in Ireland with the traditional pub decor, like dark wood booths, high tables, old-school beer signs and a fireplace.
Besides the party on St. Patrick's Day, the Dubliner is a great place to catch a European rugby or soccer game, hang out with friends or just enjoy a fine Irish draught beer at your leisure. It's a fun place both in the summer and winter seasons, but even better in the spring and fall, when the patio weather is simply perfect.
Dubliner is located at the cross streets of Greenville Avenue and Goodwin. Dress is casual and laid-back.
