This Irish pub owned by Dublin-native Feargal McKinney opened in 2021 but already has an old soul feel. Dark, heavy, wooden furniture and old-world accouterments provide cozy niches for couples or small groups. The main seating area connects to a covered deck with picnic tables for an open-air, big-city energy. They serve classic bar food with a sprinkling of Tex-Mex and a few vegan offerings. McKinney even brought over a few menu favorites from his other spot, The Old Monk. Whoever picks the soundtrack here deserves a gold star; we need more ‘80s rock. The beer menu includes imports, Paulaner Hefeweizen, Hoegaarden; and local beers like Deep Ellum and Lakewood Temptress. The house cocktails are $7 during happy hour, Tuesday through Friday, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
