Happy St Patrick's Day 2015!

Great place to spend St Patricks night wonderful live band playing traditional Irish music. Great location only 10 minutes from O'Hare. City atmosphere. Lots of nightlife on this busy city street.

We had lunch on St. Patrick's Day at this Irish restaurant and both adored the Potato Leek Soup which is so good it's a reason to trek to The Glen. Also good selection of draft Irish beers. Noisy! And I saw an attractive room for a private event for about 10, if you are in the market.

This pub used to be right next to Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. We went to that location a couple of times and our opinion of the food was that it was OK. The decor in the newish Edison Park location looks great but the food is about the same - just OK. My wife had the Irish stew and I... More

Food is wonderful and the bar has live entertainment on weekends. A family tradition to bring in Ireland New years there

Nice little Irish pub in Chicago. They pour a proper pint of Guinness and make a decent black and tan as well. Often have sports on the television. The one complaint I have is that when they have a live band it is always too loud, you end up yelling at the top of your lungs just to be heard... More

The location is great and the food is pretty good, but it's not anything that special. I love the atmosphere and outdoor seating, though.

Enjoyed our dinner at the Curragh Irish Pub and Restaurant in Edison Park. We had the Shepherd's Pie and Fish N Chips. Both delicious and very authentic.

The experience that I had tonight was one of the worst experiences I have had at a restaurant in a long, long time. To start the evening we were greeted with "We aren't serving draft beer tonight because it is warm". I understand this and could get past it if it was the only issue. After staring at the drink...

I had dinner at this restaurant, had the fish and chips and it was very good. I will definitely return! It was a large portion with three pieces of batter fried cod, a lot of chips and cole slaw. Great meal for the price. They also had some very good beer specials.
