I don’t remember ever seeing a pool table in any pub in Ireland.

I don’t know how many pubs in Dublin have pool tables, but down the country you’d definitely find a few.

Have been to a good number of Irish pubs on my travels..

Warsaw: on the way to the old town, past the university, on the left hand side.. think it’s just called "Irlandzki Pub", also one sorta parallel to the HI hostel
Krakow: saw 2, one just off main square.. cool pub across the road from it too called "ChillOut Lounge" or something along those lines.. very nice but no Irish people working there

Budapest: One very near the Museum Hostel, didn’t really like it though

Bratislava: The Dubliner
Vienna
Prague: that one in Starometska, or is it Malostranska, sells cider

Brugges
Luxembourg City: great little one called the &quotigmaleon" or something, sounds like that anyway, not sure how to spell it

Metz, France: I saw at least 3
Strasbourg: a very, very expensive one just down from the cathedral..

Munich: Gunther Murphys Smile Smile
Saarbruecken, Germany: O’Dwyers, Wallys
Mannheim: "Murphy’s Law", just outside train station, great for passing a few hours between trains!!
Berlin: pub at the Hackischer Markt U-Bahn stop, think it’s called "Kilkenny", also one in the big shopping centre near the Zoo Bahnhof (think the centre is the Europa Zentrum, dunno name of pub).. a good few more too but didn’t come across them

That’s all I can think of off the top of my head Smile

Another great Irish Pub is in Prestwick, Scotland on the Ayrshire coast. It’s on the main road (Ayr Road) and is called Flanagan’s

Hi all!

Just back from South America. Here are some clues about Irish pubs:

Buenos Aires (Argentina): go to Palermo Viejo area (I don’t remember the street)

Montevideo (Uruguay): go to Av. Bartolomé Mitre close to Plaza de Independencia

Rio de Janeiro (Brazil): go to Ipanema area at Rua Visconde Pirajá you’ll find Shenannigan’s (very good ambiance!)

yep and I still feel it could have been kept much shorter by using the title:"Cities were Irish Pubs are not available" instead.

Angers, France: It is a university town, so there are a few pubs of choice: The first is The Irishmore, off of Rue Bressigny, and owned by Pat, who is awesome and keeps his wolfhound Ginness behind the bar. Falstaff, right on Bressigny as well, is a student hangout, but it has been taken over by our Spanish Erasmus exchange crew, so you’ll hear lots of music in Español. Then there’s James Joyce,right at the end of blvd Foch, which is a bit Frenchified but still good for a right bender with fit Frenchies. In AMS we ended up at Pub Tara, and it won points for me because of our hot New Zealander waiter. It’s quite huge but not touristy, which is cool. In LUX we went to the Pyg, and it was the best time – great people, and staff who was cool enough to play my Robbie song requests. In San Antonio they are not the real thing at all, and extremely packed with tourists, military kids, and American Fratboy sports fans. But for the sake of tour guiding there’s Durty Nellie’s on the river walk. There’s a British Pub called Maddog’s on the river as well, but quite the same thing as Durty Nellie’s, just a younger crowd and bootie music instead of piano sing-along. My tip is to avoid the pricey riverwalk and go to The Flying Saucer off Huebner. I am excited about an English one – The Lion and Rose – opening right off Broadway, and seems to be as close to the real thing as SA can get. So there you go, that’s my pub tour.

As long as this thread was bumped for the umpteenth time…

In Antwerp, just off Grote Market, there’s a great Irish pub called (I believe) Irish Times. Lots of dark wood, lots of smoke and lots of Guiness on tap. It was fabulous to go in there, order a pint, and listen to everyone talk…the bartenders, most of the clientele, almost everyone in the place was Irish.

I’ve seen quite a few "Irish" pubs here in Madrid (where I live now) but I haven’t tried them out yet, so I’m not really sure how authentic they are…

I don’t know about Irish pub in Europe, but a lot of people posted the pubs they know in the major cities. I’m from Montreal and there is big Irish community, so if you pass by, you can enjoy an Irish pub for sure.
One of the famous in Montreal is the McKibbin’s Irish Pub. McLean’s is an another one. On St-Patrick’s Day it’s just crazy.
Cheers to all of you who like to have a great evening in Irish pubs

I was in that pub and there was a pretty good atmosphere. They even had Tayto crisps/potato chips from Northern Ireland. However, they did not serve any kitchen food. You really do need a fry-up or Irish stew for it to be a true Irish pub.

The Warrior Celt in Ueno in Tokyo is one of the better pubs I have seen anywhere. It is small, smoky, tastefully done and provides an amazing and friendly atmosphere. One of my top 5 bars in the world, for sure.

Aside from that, there are about 50 more in Tokyo proper.

Here’s a link containing plenty of Irish pubs on the east coast in the U.S.:http://www.emigrant.ie/pubs/default.asp?state=NY

Where in the world are you not near an Irish Pub? That should be the question. My guess would be Antarctica but I would not be surprised is someone set an Irish Pub up down there. No matter where you are in the world you are close to a Irish Pub, a Chinese Restaurant, and you are probably not too far from a doner stand
