1. Connor’s Pub 6331 Ferguson St., 317-255-5039 The clientele at this Irish dive bar in Broad Ripple ranges from hippies to post-match hurling teams. (Hurling is the national sport of Ireland, you know.) Order the fried cheese balls and enjoy the show.2. Pat Flynn’s 5198 Allisonville Rd., 317-475-0181 Don’t expect a lot of Emerald Isle tchotchkes here. Just a friendly, low-key pub vibe and traditional fare like Irish stew and shepherd’s pie. 3. Brockway Public House 12525 Old Meridian St., Carmel, 317-669-8080 This far-north “industrial pub” draws a loyal following with its fish ’n’ chips, Celtic fiddle performances, and European League Soccer nights.4. McGinley’s Golden Ace Inn 2533 E. Washington St., 317-632-0696 Opened in 1934 by Irish immigrants, the Golden Ace has a no-frills decor and 10-item menu, but the crowd spills out to the adjoining lot for St. Patty’s weekend.
5. Claddagh Irish Pub Several locations The chain-enforced Irish knickknacks covering the walls do not distract from Claddagh’s hearty stews and curries, batter-dipped fish ’n’ chips, and the bar’s very busy Jameson taps.
