Where To Go To Be Irish

(3.17) The party has already started down at Murphy’s on Fountain Street . . . it is St. Patrick’s Eve after all. A section of Mathewson Street has been blocked off with a heated tent. And there will be music both nights, inside and out. Murphy’s Pub is one of the local bars that is Irish all year long.

Another popular St. Patrick’s Day destination is the Wild Colonial Tavern on South Water Street. They plan to open at noon on Sunday and will serve their famous boiled dinners until they run out. And no one pulls a Guinness like Mo. Of course they will open today, Saturday, until 2am as usual.

Another authentic Irish Pub is McBride’s in Wayland Square which began as a funeral home. The owners added the pub after seeing such a set-up in their annual trip to Ireland. Sadly the funeral home has since decamped.

Gail Ciampa of the ProJo has more about where to go for drink and food in town and around the state.

(Do not drink and drive! Uber . . . designated driver . . . walking . . . there is no excuse for getting behind the wheel.)
