The ultimate St. Patrick's Day bash in Omaha can be found at the two Clancy’s Pub Pizza and Grill locations in the city. With a 40+ year tradition of Irish celebration, the festivities are kicked off with Irish coffee and green bagels. The soul-stirring tunes of bagpipes create an authentic atmosphere. And the fun-filled day is wrapped up by indulging in a scrumptious dinner featuring the classic combo of corned beef and cabbage.

Brazen Head
It’s no coincidence this Omaha pub chose one of Ireland’s most famous drinking establishments as their namesake. The care that went into the creation of this bar is unrivaled – they had the bar designed in Dublin, built in Wexford, shipped to the U.S. and then reassembled under the watchful eye of Irish joiners. That alone should be enough to convince you to have a pint here, honestly.
