Houston's Top 10 Irish Bars

Good old Kenneally's. We'd love this place whether it was an Irish pub or not, but the fact that it is an Irish pub makes it all the better. If you've never had their epic pizza, perhaps you should try some at Kenneally's 30th Annual St Paddy's Day Party on Monday. Yep, 30 years. They've obviously been doing something right.

Molly's once made Tom Horen's list of the Top 10 Irish Establishments in America, and rightfully so, because it's a true Irish-American pub. The food is fantastic, the drinks are always on special, and Molly's is the place to be on St Paddy's Day. It's packed from floor to, well, second floor with boisterous folks taking in the Irish dancing or downing Blind Russians. You should go, stat.

Lucky's is so built for St. Patrick's Day, it takes two locations to hold the sea of folks that flock to them. The Cypress-area spot is pretty cool, but the massive original just east of downtown simply can't be beat on March 17. Multiple rooms and bars means plenty of room to squeeze your happy ass into the crowd, but Lucky's also rocks a huge patio if you need some air. With a full four days of festivities (starting Friday) like a golf tournament, green beer, a parade, leprechauns, bagpipers and more, Lucky's has about all the chaos you could ever want in St. Paddy's party.

The Gooses Acre Irish Pub didn't even make the list, and it's an actual Irish pub from County Cork, Ireland...
