Oct 18, 2012 —  Don’t worry, your post-St. Patrick’s Day hangover is still a long way off. But like every good athlete knows, training early is the key to victory. So if last year’s pounding headache is still giving you nightmares, take your liver to the original drinking gym with a visit to an authentic Irish pub. As the inventors of Guinness and whiskey, the Irish have elevated the art of getting sloshed into traditions that are centuries old. Whether you catch the game on a big screen or take part in some craic (that’s Irish for fun conversation), an Irish pub is your best bet for strong drinks and a lively crowd.

So grab a pint at any of these top Irish pubs from outside the Emerald Isle. You’ll soon see there’s so much more to the Irish pub experience than the stereotypical craziness of St. Patrick’s Day. But if craziness is what you’re looking for, the energetic locals will be happy to help you find it. Whatever you do, be sure to cheer like the Irish do with a lifted glass and a hearty “Sláinte!”

Do you have a favorite Irish pub?

Sam A. Oct 19, 2012
My favorite Irish pub is Madigan's in Sevilla. I've spent an inordinate number of nights there.

What do you have to do to get a shamrock with your name on it at Tom Bergin's?
Chris M. Oct 18, 2012
Chicago has a ton of great ones, Johnny O’Hagan’s, Galway Arms, Irish Oak. Mystic Celt is fun too, if a little less authentic. Johnny O'Hagans has real Irish bartenders and I think the bar is imported from Ireland as well.
