This is an amazingly authentic pub --- even smells like an Irish pub. Very small, but cozy, and the barkeep is friendly. Quiet enough to talk. just beer and drinks, but you can bring in food court food if you wish. A properly poured Guinness haven in an airport.

Bridget was running the bar and serving everyone there and at the tables. It was terrific to find a Guinness in the airport. She told us upon entering there was no food, it was strictly a pub and that is what we were seeking. It was a long trip and we were waiting for our delayed second leg. The decorations... More

I've been to quite a few airport bars and this one is up there with the best. After a stressful day, it was a welcome change to get a properly poured Guinness.

Reilly's Daughter's Pub is a gem hidden in a corner of the food court at Midway Airport. This isn't your typical airport pub but is a cozy little place with a nice Irish themed atmosphere. It's a bit more intimate than your typical airport bar. The service is very good - especially when you can score a seat at the... More

When traveling, particularly on business, one can be uncomfortable and feel as a stranger. Tucked away in a back corner of Midway Airport is the antidote to that feeling. A small, wood paneled pub, comfortable as your living room, offering Guinness on draft and any other libation you may choose, reasonably quiet (but good) music you can chill to or... More

The wife and I had a layover so we popped in for a drink or two. Even full of people we got fast service and quickly found a seat. Obviously and old Irish pub decor and feel. Strangely had Elvis music playing....Dont be afraid, come on in and drown your cares away.

You can actually get your Draught beer in a glass here (instead of a plastic cup)! What Reilly's Daughter lacks in size, they make up for in the feeling that you're not in the airport anymore. What a great change from the antiseptic atmosphere of most airport bars. Definitely the place to go when you have time to kill waiting... More

We spent about 2 hours here waiting for a flight. It was the perfect way to escape the hustle and hassle of the airport. Service was fast and the drinks were first class. Definitely not your run of the mill airport bar.

This is a great little bar where you can hang out for a bit without feeling the hustle of the airport. As long as you are buying their drinks you can even bring your own food in from the adjacent food court and eat it as they don't serve food here. It's very small but a cute Irish pub feel... More

Feels like a regular bar, not the typical airport cheese. Gives a nice break from the hustle at midway. Definitely worth stopping in.
