Situated down Cambridge Street, J.B. O’ Reilly’s offers a bright and homely feel to diners who walk in and are greeted by the faces on the mantle above the fireplace. It’s quite a spacious pub and according to the word on the street, O’ Reilly’s sells the most number of Guinness pints annually than any other pub in the country. Safe to say the crowds that gather around its tables and bar counters would be enough of a convincing give-away of how the rumors began. Its rustic interior and memorabilia hung across the walls of the property offer an inviting experience for guests and comfortable enough to have the Guinness coming through the night. With live music, a beautiful fireplace and delicious pint and parmi, all make for an enjoyable evening.

Nothing makes the belly happier than a dry aged stake from Fibber’s located down Newcastle Street. Having opened its doors to Perth residents and visiting tourists in 1998, the authentic Irish fare has just kept getting better. Fibber’s offers a typical vintage bistro feel combining a steakhouse and pub concept. With simple white table cloths and leather banquette seats the old world charm is definitely kept alive in this little treasure at the heart of Leederville in Perth. Its traditional Irish pies are another crowd pleaser and the meal portions are more than generous. However, it is the dry-aged steaks that the pub is known for and ofcourse the Guinness on tap which is imported directly from the Emerald isles. Furthermore, diners will be pleased to learn than Fibber McGee’s source their produce from its own organic farm. That’s not all – they also cure their own bacon make their own butter.
