Welcome to Ithaca’s only Irish Pub!

Kilpatrick’s Publick House is a traditional, upscale Irish pub restaurant featuring authentic Irish-inspired and American cuisine. We’re located in Seneca Place on the Commons in downtown Ithaca, New York – also home to the Hilton Garden Inn, Starbuck’s, and other popular shops and eateries. We consider ourselves to be a “place for everyone,” catering not just to a steady bar crowd, but also to families and business travelers who are visiting the area.

A Place for Everyone

Kilpatrick's Publick House Seating Areas - Downtown Ithaca, NY

Kilpatrick’s offers two distinct dining areas:

The first dining area is a cozy, rural cottage setting which has a hand-painted mural of the Irish countryside, a copper bar top, stonewall and a stone fireplace that reaches to the ceiling. (This area also features a stage area to accommodate bands and other performers during special events.)

The second seating area is a refined Irish-Victorian setting featuring dark mahogany woods, a granite bar top, checkered tile floors, ornate light fixtures and large private booths with television screens in each booth.

Whether guests are traveling through the Finger Lakes or Ithaca on business or locals are stopping in with their family or friends, Kilpatrick’s offers a dining and pub experience for all of them.

Kilpatick’s Publick House is where townies and tourists meat, mingle, and make memories.
