For this week’s “Business Spotlight” we sat down with Stephanie Gray, co-owner of Kildare’s Irish Pub, which is located at 18 W Gay Street!


1. Tell me about your store and any particular things you believe make it unique.

For years, Kildare’s has been a go-to destination in the Borough. As a cornerstone of the town, a good Irish pub always has something for everyone: business lunches, family-friendly dinners, international soccer and rugby games, karaoke, themed trivia nights, and Sunday brunches. We believe that you will come in for food and spirits, and leave with friends and memories!


2. What services or products do you offer?

We offer traditional Irish food & pub eats, a wide range of imported and local craft beers, one of the largest whiskey selections in West Chester, and specialty cocktails. We also have daily specials, including happy hours from Monday-Friday, and entertainment almost every night of the week.


3. How long have you been in business?

Kildare’s was originally opened back in 2003, and Dane and I bought it in June of 2015.


4. What do you love most about being located in West Chester?

We love connecting with the West Chester community. Seeing regulars, meeting new people, and giving back mean a lot to us.


5. What can you tell me about the culture or atmosphere of your store?

All are welcome! We have a very laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere. With the decor and mentality of a true Irish pub, we are suited to any and all occasions. You can watch a game with your friends, have dinner on our patio, or come sing karaoke at night.


6. Is there anything else you would like to share about your store?

We’re open early for soccer! Grab brunch and a beer as you watch your favorite team play.
