Offside Pub and Whiskey bar
One for the whiskey lovers. The Offside is a local favourite in Berlin and the perfect stop on a St Paddy’s day pub crawl for whiskey fans. Offering a fantastic range of whiskies with over 700 varieties, you’ll be spoilt for choice at this Irish bar with a sophisticated edge. The menu also includes a great range of local craft beers, and of course a cosy pint of Guinness. The owner Lars hosts whiskey tastings too.
Finnegans is a truly authentic Irish pub and restaurant in the Steglitz district, a short journey away from the city centre. With friendly staff and a warm atmosphere, there’s a reason it’s one of the most popular Irish bars in the city. The food is comforting and heart warming serving up classic Irish dishes from Shepherds Pie to Irish spare ribs. St Patrick’s Day is set to be buzzing at Finnegans. Great beer, Great food and Irish malt. What more can you want?
Cliffs of Doneen
This small Irish pub is one of the best in Prenzlauer Berg with a great selection of House beer. It’s a very homely pub with a regular clientele, offering a lovely area for outdoor seating and smoking. You can expect it to be packed on St Patrick’s Day, as the whole area is lively filled with bars and restaurants. The Guinness here costs just over €4 a pint, great value for money compared to other Irish pubs.
A hidden gem nestled in the heart of the city. The Lir is easily the best Irish bar in town (and has been highly recommended by our team in Berlin - who love their beer), so we know this place is top notch. Boasting an open fireplace in winter and a leafy green palm tree beer garden on warmer days, The Lir is a great place to head to whatever the weather happens to be on the 17th. Selling yummy Irish specials on the food menu, great beer including the classics of Guinness, Kilkenny and cider, be sure to stop by here on St Patrick’s Day.
