About Us


We focus in Great Cocktails, Fresh High Quality Food, Good Friendly Service, & a Fun Atmosphere to watch all of your favorite sporting events

Located in bustling Old Town, Declan's Irish Pub provides bar-goers with the most authentic Irish bar experience outside of the Emerald Isle. From classic fish and chips to the 140 year-old mahogany bar, the bar's decor and menu was inspired by owner Declan's boyhood experiences working in his parent's pub in Belfast.

Patron's can sip on Irish brews and Whiskey’s, in addition to standard American offerings, while they enjoy signature pub food like the Carne Asada burger, in-house braised corned beef Reuben sandwich, Bulleit Bourbon Chili, and grilled chicken tenders. Declan's boasts over a dozen flat screen TVs, a private second-floor party room, a full service kitchen, and one of the largest sidewalk cafes in all of Chicago. So if you're up for watching a game or meeting friendly people, come on by. In the meantime, feel free to browse our site and thanks for visiting!
