NYC’s 10 Best Irish Pubs, Bars, & Restaurants in Mahattan
10. Rocky Sullivan’s. 34 Van Dyke Street, Brooklyn. This Brooklyn Irish pub has all you’ll need from cold beer, an outdoor patio, good food, warm people, and at times, live music. Grab some delicious buffalo wings, good wings like at Rocky Sullivan’s in NYC are hard to come by, with your beer. They also serve pizza and other standard bar foods. Serves traditional Irish plates like bangers and mash and shepherd’s pie as well as an Irish breakfast and brunch on the weekends.
9. Kennedy’s Steak & Seafood. 327 W. 57th Street, Theater District. Located just southwest of Central Park, Kennedy’s is an Irish-American restaurant with a full bar, open 365 days out of the year. The interior is full of wood and the atmosphere is relaxed with a fireplace. Sit at the front bar and order a burger to go with your Guinness. Really attentive bartenders will take care of you. Skip the steak and steak sandwich, there are better New York City steakhouses to visit. Expect a crowd of tourists at Kennedy’s.
8. O’Flaherty’s Ale House. 334 West 46th Street, Theater District. While not the best service, O’Flaherty’s offers some of the best live traditional live Irish music and and is a good bar to come and watch sports. This is a full restaurant and bar so try some Irish American food in between your Jameson shots and beer. Like most other good Irish bars in the city, the decor is warm and inviting with a fireplace, copper and wooden bar, sunken pool room, and dart board. The bookshelves and other items reminds me more of an old study or living room than a restaurant and sports bar.
7. Spike Hill. 184-186 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn. My favorite Irish spot in Brooklyn with tons of events and always a good time. A laid back, cool spot. Come for St. Patrick’s Day or any other day and it will not disappoint. Good priced beer and food.
6. Ulysses’. 58 Stone Street or 95 Pear Street, Financial District. An entertaining restaurant and bar in Manhattan. Filled with plenty of entertainment, plenty of beer to choice from, and live bands. Superb day or evening Irish spot in the city.
