Best Irish Pubs on Maui – HOP to it

Well, this is an awfully short list. These are the only two Irish pubs on Maui at the time of this writing (March, 2018)! So Maui doesn’t boast a great lineup of Irish pubs. But at least the two it does have are pretty darn great…

Mulligan’s on the Blue (Wailea)
Maui’s largest Irish Pub, Mulligan’s on the Blue offers up a full menu of Irish classics plus local fish. The drink side of the menu shows a large selection of draught and bottled beers, whiskeys and cocktails. The pub also features numerous TV’s making it an ideal spot to catch a game. The weekly Wednesday night Willie K. Dinner Show was one of the more popular live music events on the Island. However, after being diagnosed with cancer in January, he’s scaling back his performances. Check the online schedule on the Mulligan’s website to see when he’ll be playing and be sure you pre-book if you plan on seeing one of Maui’s most popular entertainers. The pub also features magic shows on Tuesdays and live music the rest of the week. While located on the “Blue” course of the famed Wailea Golf Club, Mulligan’s is independently run. Still, it’s a great place to stop for a drink after a round. (Mulligan’s on the Blue)

Dog and Duck (Kihei)
Located in the “triangle,” the little cluster of bars and clubs just south of Foodland in Kihei, Dog and Duck is the more wild and unrefined of the two Maui Irish pubs. If Mulligan’s is known for its extensive Irish food menu, Dog and Duck is more known for its party atmosphere, seven nights a week. The food is OK (stick with the fish and chips), but if you’re going for the drinks and a good time, Dog and Duck has you covered. The pub has a few TV’s and they are pretty generous with the remote if there’s an event you must see. One great thing about Dog and Duck is that it’s centrally located in Kihei, so you’re a short Lyft ride away if you over imbibe. (Dog and Duck)

Of course, if your idea of an Irish Pub is anywhere that serves Guinness on tap, you’ll find plenty of locations on Maui. In fact, tell us in the comments where you like to go for a Guinness or Jameson…
