About Dolan’s Bar

We are a laid back bar nestled in the small town of Ridley Park PA. Dolan’s is the quintessential Irish American Dive Bar but with more character than Cheers. We have a varied group of patrons, which range from 21 to 85! Some of them are third and fourth generation patrons!

We have an unique atmosphere and awesome clientele. We have also the cleanest running draught lines in the area, so much so, you can taste the difference! This is due to meticulous cleaning, perfect temperatures, and a direct draw draught system.

Looking for takeout? We also offer a wide selection of beer, from 6-18 packs!

Dolan’s has both girls & guys softball teams AND both girls & guys dart teams, which are always looking for new faces! Quizzo on Tuesdays and Fridays. Many events, including popular charity event packages and parties.

Stop in for a good time any day or night of the week and remember, we NEVER close early.
