IrishCentral asked its 5 million monthly readers around the world to share with us their favorite Irish pub outside of Ireland. The results are in! 

What makes an Irish pub so special? No matter where you are in the world the Irish pub is like an unofficial embassy a bastion for Irish people abroad and a haven for those who love the Irish, their food, drink, and culture. 

For Irish abroad, the Irish pub is a first port of call for those in search of accommodation or local jobs but most importantly it's somewhere where you'll find a friendly Irish welcome! 

Our poll in search of the best Irish pub outside of Ireland had a clear winner with entrants from all over the world. 

And the WINNER is... Sullivan's Public House, in Oxford, Michigan.
