The heart of Ireland beats proudly in this pub, which is owned by a true Son of Erin. Its handsomely paneled walls feature Irish beer signs, a flag, pictures of Irish authors and the occasional visage of a Gaelic patriot. It also provides one of the finest, properly poured pints of Guinness Stout on the South Side, and that's something to boast about. Keegan's central bar-in-the-round makes it easy to serve both sides of the establishment. That's important, because Keegan's is a popular destination for weeknight and weekend get-togethers. The friendly, neighborhood feel makes it seem like everybody knows your name, and they often do. TVs are always tuned to the big games, and the variety of beers proves a major draw.
