You’ll find a taste of Dublin in downtown Green Bay at St. Brendan's. The inn sits on the Fox River and features 28 rooms (snug, standard or suite), plus a bar and restaurant. The latter two are always hopping.
Guests find rather posh, spacious rooms, featuring queen beds, recliners, walk-in rainfall showers, a whirlpool bath and free Wi-Fi. Prices start at $119. The included breakfast buffet offers scones, muffins, breads, cereal, yogurt and fruit. A chef prepares made-to-order omelets, too.
If you stay for lunch or dinner, you're in luck. St. Brendan's features great house salads and warm, sweet, nutty Irish brown bread. The Castledaly lamb shank ($15.95) is slow-cooked in Guinness until the meat falls off the bone and comes in a bowl of hearty root vegetables served over mashed potatoes with Guinness gravy. More Irish specialties include corned beef with cabbage and potatoes in a creamy horseradish sauce, fish and chips, shepherd's pie, Grandma Flanigan's pot roast and County Clare meat loaf. Wash it down with a choice of 15 imported beers on tap (including three Irish stouts). Sweeten an evening out with a Bailey's truffle cheesecake.
