People have been moving to New England from the Emerald Isle since the mid-19th century, and more Irish people continue to arrive. Many come with long family experience in running public houses -- pubs -- and restaurants in the old country.
Irish pubs in New England are special places, filled with excellent beers and Irish whiskies, traditional Irish foods like bangers and mash, boisterous Irish music, and plenty of hospitality. They brim with revelry At St. Patrick's Day, but they are warm and thirst-quenching places all year. If beer is your favorite brew, thing about jumping aboard one of the many brewery tours that operate in many locations.
