Sports and beer are the two biggest things that Bostonians are passionate about, and when it comes to pubs in Boston, nowhere is that passion more on display than in the never-ending supply of Irish pubs that are packed with neighborhood locals and sports fanatics who get together to talk Pats and Celtics and throw back frothy pints of Irish favorites or local Sam Adams varietals.
There are so many Boston pubs around town that denizens might take them for granted. But great establishments can be found amongst the student watering holes in Cambridge, the upper-crust neighborhoods of Beacon Hill and Back Bay, the gritty side streets of Dorchester, or right Downtown alongside the skyscrapers and historic monuments.
Boston has both famous and historic pubs in its ranks like The Bell in Hand Tavern, which dates back to 1795 and claims to be America’s oldest tavern or Eire Pub which was made popular when Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton made stops while out on the campaign trail.
Whether looking for a relaxing place to watch the Red Sox, talk shop with some pals, throw back some Irish pints, or chow down on some fish & chips, the pubs in Boston are the perfect setting to end a long day or begin a long night.
