Milwaukee is famous for brewing so it is no wonder that this city is home to an abundance of Irish bars. Milwaukee was once the brewing capital of the world and that tradition is still alive today. Keeping that in mind, we at IrishCentral decided to put together a list of the best Irish pubs in Milwaukee.

This is a big week for the diaspora across Milwaukee with the annual Milwaukee Irish Fest taking place in the city of Milwaukee. IrishCentral will have a booth set up at the event so be sure to come along and check us out. While you’re in the area why not try out some of the best Irish pubs from the list below.

House of Guinness

House of Guinness pub in Waukesha

The House of Guinness is a ‘no frills,’ ‘down to earth’ Irish pub in the heart of the historic Downtown Waukesha. Its beautiful wooden interior is an instant treat for the eyes and fits in beautifully with the landscape in the surrounding area of the city.

The House of Guinness may not offer food, but it does offer fantastic beer at a cheap price and an impressive Irish whiskey list. And if you do fancy a bit of food a list of local restaurants can be found on their website. Locals love the atmosphere, which is perfect for a quiet drink with your friends. With various events on most nights of the week, people can rest assured of having a good night.

“A proper drinkers pub. Simple, honest and authentic. Best pint in Waukesha and a wee nugget of the old country right downtown.”

“I’ve been frequenting House of Guinness for the last 10 years and it has consistently remained one of my favorite pubs. The beer selection is great and it’s the only place I know that carries Boddingtons on nitro.”
