We had guests from Ireland and they were very impressed with the pub. People raved about the food. The staff and service could not have been better. Thank you for an amazing evening that we will never forget.

You have to love the Brocach. It's like a classic old Dublin pub dropped onto the Capitol Square in Madison. The bar is always great and they sometimes have an Irish musical group playing. This trip found the food a bit wanting. The slaw and...More

For those nights when the Old Fashioned is too crowded, try walking to the nearby Brocach for a fun atmosphere, yummy Irish food, and a good beer selection. We held a family event in one of the (elevator accessible) upstairs private rooms. Even there it...More
