NEW YORK CITY

The Empire City has more Irish bars and restaurants than any other city in the world, the legacy of how immigration and love of tradition created a strong and vibrant Irish-American community. It also benefits from hundreds of thousands of tourists and students from Ireland, and other stars in the global Irish universe.

Every borough in the city has at least one Irish stronghold with terrific Irish pubs and restaurants. But it's a safe bet that there are great bars dotted all over the city map, from cozy neighborhoods to Times Square. The sign of a shamrock in a pub's window is just about a sure sign that a proper pint and a great time is waiting inside for you!

If you are looking a landmark Irish establishment in the city, then why not try McSorleys, the legendary Irish bar that first opened its doors in 1854. Women were not allowed in until 1970!
