IRISH BARS USA
Welcome to Irish Bars USA!
Immigration from Ireland to America began in the 17th century, and although the proud Irish wanted to plant their roots as American laborers, cops, doctors, etc., they still wanted to preserve a vital piece of their Celtic traditions. The one thing they had in common was the need to take a day off, find a place to relax, chat with friends (old & new), as they listened to the music from their home country. Irish bars around the USA have become a staple…not only to the true Irish but to all who want to experience the uniqueness of what it means to be Irish. This site is to honor these bars and to provide you with the tools to find them.
Let us help you to keep the spirit of Ireland alive.
