Updated: 7 February 2018
This St. Patrick’s Day, dive deeper than green garb, and experience authentic Irish culture right here in New York City. After cheering on your local 256-year-old parade, you’ve earned some Guinness, whiskey, and pub grub at the best New York City Irish bars to visit for St. Patrick’s Day.

The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, New York
The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, New York

Not only is the Dead Rabbit one of New York’s best Irish bars, it’s one of its best bars, period. With 1,180-plus Yelp recommendations and awarded titles including ‘World’s Best Bar’ and ‘Best Bar in North America,’ this FiDi destination is a worthy watering-hole pick any day of the year. Still, the Dead Rabbit’s Irish whiskey selection, smoked ham and Irish cheddar toasties, and Irish coffees taste particularly satisfying on St. Patrick’s Day.

McSorley’s Old Ale House claims to be the oldest continuously operated saloon in New York City. The East Village institution, which has hosted patrons like President Abraham Lincoln and John Lennon, is known for its small but mighty drinks menu, consisting of just two house ales, either light or dark, and nothing else.

Those willing to brave the crowds at Molly’s will be rewarded with one of New York City’s most authentic Irish experiences.

Swift

Bar, Irish, $$$
Save to wishlist

Like the work of its namesake Irish writer, Jonathan Swift, this NoHo bar may prompt pondering. Swift ventures beyond its (undoubtedly impressive) Irish whiskey selection to offer contemporary cocktails like the ‘Irish Penicillin’ or the ‘Irish Old Fashioned’. What’s more, reinvigorated Irish dishes include corned beef and cabbage tacos and potato wedges with Irish curry.

An Beal Bocht Café

Pub, Irish, $$$
Save to wishlist

Skip the Fifth Avenue flocks at this Riverdale draft house, where Irish comfort foods like curry and Irish breakfast are washed down with local craft brews and global bourbons and whiskeys. From its Flann O’Brien-inspired name and its décor dedicated to Irish authors to its live Irish Trad music sessions, An Beal Bocht Café promotes Irish pride on St. Patrick’s and every other day.

Before Hell’s Kitchen and Twelfth Avenue, there was only the Hudson River and one waterfront Irish saloon. Landmark Tavern is a timeless treasure for generations of Irish New Yorkers, who can all feel at home with Scotch eggs, Irish bangers and mash, and 20 single malt whiskeys.

Offering live Irish-American seisúns, and singer-songwriter music seven days a week, Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar is always a good idea. Enjoy the sounds of home at this Irish-run bar, known for its primarily-Guinness selection and standout happy hour from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
