The Dubliner isn't the fanciest place in town, but that's not really our criterion for a good Irish bar. Located on the corner of Vandalia and University, the quaint pub carries a solid list of Irish taps and whiskey, and the bartenders know how to pour a Guinness. It's an authentic Irish bar without the frills or gimmicks. It has plenty of space, is home to a friendly cast of regulars, and a collection of John F. Kennedy portraits decorates the walls. The Dubliner also offers the best live Irish music in town (and other Irish entertainment) every day of the week except Mondays. And best of all, there's never a cover.
