Housed in a charmingly weathered brick building on a small street in downtown Mobile, O'Daly's Irish Pub is an incredibly straightforward watering hole with an enthusiastic focus on the Emerald Isle. Guinness and Irish whiskey are the main exports of the bar, specifically in the discounted Irish car bombs the bar regularly hypes.
