In traditional Irish towns, the pub is traditionally the meeting point for town citizens. Pubs or public houses are Irish bars where people gather to chat, hang out and, of course, drink beer and eat good food. Baltimore has brought the traditional Irish bar atmosphere to life.
It’s that time of year in the city — a day of Irish pride — featuring the green and gold, festive music, soccer and plenty of drinking all the while. Baltimore is world-renowned for its Inner Harbor, football and crab cakes. However, the city is also notable for throwing some of the best St. Patty’s Day events anywhere in the country. In particular, there are five local Irish spots that are must-visit venues during this special holiday.
