1. The Brewhouse Cafe 401 Moreland Ave, Atlanta, GA 30307 (Little 5 Points)

Modestly self-billed as "Atlanta's BEST International Sports Bar", Brewhouse is definitely at least among the top examples, as it made our list of Favorite 5 Sports Bars thanks to its comfortably divey interior, TVs galore, daily pint specials (Terrapin/SweetWater Mondays, Leinenkugel's Thursdays -- keep the glass!), and a month-long $20 large pizza/Miller Lite pitcher combo... wait, they figured out how to get beer inside those little pretzel rolls too?! Amazing.

2. The Elder Tree Public House 469 Flat Shoals Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316 (East Atlanta)

This Irish public house offers up traditional pub fare utilizing items like house-cured bacon, fresh salmon, and more. Their crowning achievement is perhaps their Spur burger, which comes with blue cheese, portobella mushrooms, and onion.

3. Meehan's Public House 232 19th St NW, Ste 7165, Atlanta, GA 30363 (Midtown)

Meehan's is your one stop shop for true Irish pubbiness, boasting knockout burgers and pints, right in the heart of Midtown. Check out their patio'd outdoor space for a brew and a bite. We think that Meehan's is the best Irish pub in Atlanta, but you'll have to stop by and see for yourself.

5. Fado Irish Pub 273 Buckhead Ave, Atlanta, GA 30305 (Buckhead)

Stop by Fado's Irish Pub and Restaurant for a pint and delicious bar eats like their pork schnitzel sandwich. As far as we are concerned, that are the best and most authentic Irish pub in Atlanta and have the best Guinness in town.

6. Pub 71 4058 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30319 (Brookhaven)

Helmed by a dude who was born in 1971 (get it?)... and who wanted to open a place where his friends and family could hang/ booze, this Irish-style drink spot's got more than just the usual taps (Sweetwater Red Hot Mama), and home-style eats like a Jack Daniel’s Smoked Beef Brisket Sandwich, and Shepherd’s Pie.
