B.D. Riley’s

204 E. Sixth St.

“If you can’t be in Dublin for St. Patrick’s Day, this is the place to be,” says B.D. Riley’s owner John Erwin.

There’s never a cover at the pub that makes you feel as though you’re in the heart of Ireland, and St. Patty’s is no exception. Live Irish bagpipers and bands start 11 a.m. the morning of the 17th, and run until 2 a.m. the next day. You can also enjoy B.D. Riley’s award-winning menu, featuring shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, fish and chips, and the best corned beef and cabbage in town.

And if you’re looking to drink green beer on St. Patty’s, look again. Boasting a sign year-round that reads, “If you’re looking for green beer, you’re in the wrong place,” B.D. Riley’s will serve up St. James’s Gate beer, the traditional standard.

Truly an Irish pub with an amazing story, B.D. Riley’s has been open for 12 years, originally built in Dublin by five brothers who were carpenters. Erwin had the pub shipped to Austin and worked with the brothers for five weeks to reconstruct it. Named after his grandmother, who always said she would take him to Ireland but never did, the pub was built in her memory.

“She’s kind of the patron saint of the pub,” Erwin explains, noting a picture of her hanging on the bar’s wall. For a more family-oriented event, B.D. Riley’s will celebrate St. Practice Day March 10, with live Irish music and food and drink, noon until midnight.
