Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill

Ól, Céol agus Craic!

A good pint, great music
and wonderful entertainment.
— Frank O’Dowd, 1902-2000

Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill is the beating heart of The Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel. Unlike any other Galena restaurant or bar, our pub exemplifies the finest in Irish craftsmanship. Designed and handcrafted in Ireland, the pub features rich oaks and mahoganies, etched glass and handpainted murals. With an expanded pub menu, extensive beverage selections and entertainment every Friday and Saturday night, you won’t get any more authentic if you traveled to Ireland for your pint!


Frank O’Dowd’s menu blends Gaelic traditions with modern flavors. Meat and potato lovers enjoy beef, chicken or fish entrées, while diners seeking a taste of the “Old Sod” delight in Irish favorites including Shepherd’s Pie and Fish ‘N Chips. Appetizers, salads, and sandwiches round out the menu.



Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill is recognized by many for its expansive collection of beer and spirits. A 16-line draught beer system serves up iconic beer from Ireland and domestic small batch craft brews. The spirits collection includes nearly 50 whiskeys, scotches and bourbons from around the globe.


From classic Irish pub tunes to a mix of modern favorites, Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill showcases talented musicians and entertainers who will have you clapping and dancing along! Live music every Friday and Saturday night year round, with additional dates scheduled near holidays.
