The best Irish restaurants:

 

Flannery’s Pub (323 Prospect Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44115) will be having live music on St. Patrick’s Day. Always a hot spot for homemade Irish comfort food, stop by for a good time with the fam on March 17.

The Harp (4408 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113), a personal favorite, will be open for all three meals on St. Patrick’s Day. We recommend you share the beer cheese dip served with warm soft pretzels and delicious shepard’s pie.
