This is your classic New York City Irish Pub which might as well be back in the old country and that makes it a perfect Irish Pub for St. Patrick’s day. The authentic feel you get when you walk in and hear the unmistakable accent of the Irish is only the beginning. If the drink is your thing you can select from their extensive selection of Irish Whiskey. Or try one of their perfectly poured pints of Guinness which is said to be by some, the best in New York City. Another plus is you will not get it in the American pint glass that is 16oz. it will the in the Irish one that is 20oz. To keep you going there is also a great menu. The shepherds pie is one of the best in the city. Kinsale Tavern is moderately priced for New York City and if there is a sporting event on that day anywhere in the world you can be sure it will be on one of their many high definition TVs. So come on St. Patrick’s day and celebrate.

Another New York City gem as far as Irish Pubs go and just might fit in across the pond. The bartenders are always great and Puck Fair has a very lively atmosphere. They have a very extensive bottle and draft beer menu and they pour a hell of a pint of Guinness. Or try their Irish coffee with the fresh cream made with Jameson. It is the best in the city. Not only is the bar great but they also have a fantastic menu filled with amazing fare. To keep it light try the Irish smoked salmon. The pricing is fair so it will not kill the wallet. The music is always going and the crowd is great so stop by this Irish Pub on St. Patrick’s day and you will be glad you did.

A great choice for an Irish Pub on St. Patrick’s Day in New York City. With a diverse crowd it is always a great place for a drink especially on the big holiday. You will rub elbows with blue collar, white collar and the theater crowd as well. The Playwright has arguably the coldest bottled beer in New York City and they know a thing or two about Guinness. The bar is fully stocked with spirits as well so drink up. The bartenders are always great so stop by at any time on St. Patrick’s Day. They also have a full menu with great food. You can never go wrong with the Patrick Kavanagh burger. The atmosphere is very down to earth and so are the prices. A great option for an Irish Pub on St. Patrick’s day.
Go out and enjoy this festive holiday and try not too drink to much. Pick one of these places as they are the top 3 Irish Pubs for St. Patrick’s Day in New York City. Please, don’t drink and drive!!
