On St. Patrick’s Day there are 3 things I want potato soup, a good pub and a green beer. Maybe throw an Irish car bomb or two in for good measure and I’m a happy girl. New Jersey has no shortage of Irish pubs, a few of my fellow Jersey Girls gave me their suggestions on some of their favorite New Jersey Irish Pubs.
6 New Jersey Irish Pubs to Grab a Pint at this St. Patrick’s Day
The Irish Pub – Atlantic City
Known locally as “The Pub” the Irish Pub in Atlantic City is a place that is loaded with history and tradition. Did you know that the architecture of the pub was the inspiration for the red hotel pieces in the Monopoly game? Neither did I and I have been to the pub more times than I can count. A favorite among locals and tourists, The Irish Pub is known for it’s St.Patrick’s Day celebration and Bag Day (day after St. Patrick’s Day) celebrations. For more information visit The Irish Pub.
Anglesea Pub – North Wildwood
North Wildwood is known for its fall Irish Festival and it doesn’t lack in Irish Pubs. My favorite is the Anglesea Pub and rightfully so it’s an icon in North Wildwood and was named by Buzzfeed as the best Irish Bar in New Jersey. Their menu mixes traditional Irish food like fish and chips, shepards pie and Guinness stew with local favorites like crab cakes, cheesesteaks and clams. For more information visit, The Anglesea Pub.
