With a library full of Shaw, Joyce, and Wilde, acoustic musicians playing from a booth, and Guinness on tap, Dallas’ new Trinity Hall pub is as close to the Emerald Isle as you can get without going there. Modeled after Trinity College Dublin, the handsome bar and restaurant celebrates all things Irish, including soccer, whiskey-stoked conversation, and a menu of corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew, and the like. Pop in for a pint at Mockingbird Station, the new retail/loft residential development near Southern Methodist University. (214) 887-3600.
