Australia’s Top 50 Irish Pubs

Contents

What defines a great Irish pub? Sounds like a good starting point for a bar-stool argument.

Page 04 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Australian Irish Pub Map Finder

People will have different opinions. It might be the fit-out, the staff, the music, the service, the attitude, the ambiance. It may be like asking ‘what defines the craic?’. It’s an Irish thing.

Page 05 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Sydney Irish Pub Map Finder

The pub occupies a central place in Irish life. It is much more than just a place to have a drink. It is a gathering point, a place to celebrate and grieve, laugh and cry, dance and chat, sing and, well, argue.

It is, at it best, truly a public house. Away from Ireland, the best Irish pubs are the ones that engage with the local community. In this new edition of the Australian Irish Pub Guide – brought to you by Magners Irish Cider – we have listed the Top 50 Irish pubs in Australia. One of these 50 pubs will soon be named the Irish Echo Pub Of The Year for 2013. Keep an eye on our website – www.irishecho.com. au – for details on how you can vote. Also, these pubs will form part of the new Irish Echo App soon to be available on iTunes. There, you will have a chance to offer your comments and reviews on Irish pubs around Australia. The pubs are listed alphabetically by state, suburb and then by name.
