10 of Our Favorite Irish Pubs in NYC

You love pub food, whiskey and folk music, but could do without the frat bros that can sometimes overrun the city’s rowdier shamrock-emblazoned spots. Luckily, NYC is home to some of the most charming Irish bars this side of the Emerald Isle. Grab a pint and settle in for come corned beef hash and traditional music.


If you’ve never tried one of the Dead Rabbit’s innovative cocktails, you need to head to this Financial District favorite, stat. Opened by Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry (both originally from Belfast) back in 2013, the Dead Rabbit has been named the world’s best bar several times. The two-story space recently expanded its taproom but the place still fills up fast, so get there early to snag a table.
