Visiting an Irish pub is like stepping into James Joyce's Ulysses without dealing with molemen, teenage detectives, and heavy-handed NASCAR references. Read the CliffsNotes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at Dubliner Irish Pub in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park.
Dubliner Irish Pub soothes the stomach with a menu of dishes concocted by following Emerald Isle recipes. Dig into the Irish breakfast all day, a platter bulging with two eggs, Irish-style sausages, baked beans, grilled tomato, and rye toast ($9.50); the award-winning shepherd’s pie, a pastry purse of beef and lamb ($15.50); the vegetarian shepherd’s pie ($16.50); or the Smithwick’s fish and chips, a golden cod fillet found swimming in a lake of tangy ale ($14.50). While consuming hearty Irish entrees, use your third hand to take hold of one of 10 imported and domestic beers on tap, including Smithwick’s and Magners cider.
Dubliner's darkened pub reverberates with live music on select evenings. Comestibles can be taken outside to watch people shop at the open-air mall, surrounded by landscaped greenery that will eat any breadcrumbs you throw its way.
Dubliner Irish Pub
At Dubliner Irish Pub, only one authentic pub fixture is missing: a roisterous old man in a wool cap and cable-knit sweater. All the others, however, have acclimated to the Florida heat. Communal tables conducive to storytelling. Foamy pints of Guinness, Smithwick's, and Magners cider. A stick-to-your-ribs menu peppered with corned beef sliders, shepherd's pie, and beer-battered haddock. Even the flat-screen TVs find time between American sports for Celtic pastimes such as soccer, rugby, hurling, and competitive freckling. Weekly bouts of trivia and live performances from local bands help keep the craic crackly.
