    What are your favorite Irish pubs in New England?

    A few years ago, just out of college, my favorite two places in Greater Boston were the Corrib Pub in Brookline and the Brendan Behan Pub in J.P. My favorite bartender at the Corrib, "Jimmy", was a great bar man, and poured a wicked Guiness..for only $2.50 a pint!! (ok, this was 2000, but hey!)

    The Behan has great live music, fantastic beers on tap, and an effortless drunken crawl away from the T!!

    The Field in Cambridge..as "true Irish Pub" as you can get!! May be #1 seller of Guiness in Massachusetts. Sit back sip a pint and listen to Gerry....you almost smell the peat fire and hear the ocean of Galway Bay.

    North of Boston... The Worthen in Lowell. In fact, Lowell has a number in the area. Great place to celebrate St Patty's day if you don't want to drive to Boston

    I grew up near the Snug when it was under another name and a dive, so it's not a long time traditional fave of the town and have been there a few times and it's okay.

    My opinion of it may be stronger if I wasn't comparing it to O'Hara's in Newton Highlands, which to me is the perfect pub. Great food, great atomsphere, great Irish owners, clean as can be and of course a great beer selection.

    No way the Snug makes it over O'Hara's

    My favorite was always The Quiet Man on Broadway in Southie. Unfortunately, Southie is being overtaken by yuppies and The Quiet Man was forced to close in order to make room for more high rise condos that just don't belong in that neighborhood. It's very sad that this is happening to a part of town that truly belonged to the Irish, and I've boycotted Southie ever since. =(

    I'm amazed The Olde Inn in Dennis wasn't on this list... Great Irish pub--live Irish music whenever I'm there. Plus if you get really drunk and tossed out, you can stumble across the street for a Scorpion Bowl and the world's greatest crab rangoon at The Royal Palace

    Matt Murphy's Brookline. After years viaiting and working in Ireland, nothing in New England tops it. It is definitely the best. Although a bit "snug" as Irish pubs go ...

    No Pub listed holds a candle to the Liberal Cup, in Hallowell, Maine. If you want a taste of true ireland, I'd start there. Hands down, best Irish Pub in NE, w/ argument.

    No list is complete without:

    1. The Old Timers in Clinton (my old hometown bar, run by the same family since the '40s)

    2. The Littlest (the old place was better but it's still a great bar)

    3. Dooley's

    The Black Rose IMO is a tourist trap, sorry.

    I love The Field near central square. Small place, but feels just right.

    I love Brian Boru's and I'm not a fan of fake Irish pubs. I got thrown out of there twice in one day - at 1:30pm and 11:30pm. Unfortunately, to me that's a source of some pride in my sad booze soaked life.

    Well, every visit to North Quincy wouldn't be complete without a stop at the The Fours. Good grub, pints of everything, and always a crowd. My work friends from out of town always default us to this place, so it has appeal to those who want to be Orish.

    The Claddaugh in Lawrence used to be great when it was in it's old location. Also the Shaskeen in Manchester NH is good during a Tuesday night.
