I've been travelling for a few months now and have a pretty good cross section. As somegthing to research, I've been stopping into whatever excuse for an Irish pub they have wherever I am. Many are lousy pale imitations...But my absolute fave in the palces I have been is The Murphy's Law Pub in Salzburg. Run by Irish folks and with great Craic. Anybody else have an favourites?

My other half, who's from Belfast, loves The Irish Embassy here in Montreal. Personally, I'm more of a Hurley's fan, although there must be 30 Irish pubs in the city to choose from...

That makes sense. A huge Irish contingent in Quebec. Ah those Canada Moment spots are really payinhg off.

Neal actually worked for a year in the Beauce, which is a region just north of the Maine border. He said he never saw so many Irish names outside of Ireland in all his life, yet hardly a one could speak a lick of English. The cemetery there was filled with Irish descendants... I guess everyone really is a little Irish after all!

Well, Canadian Moment explains that many orphans were taken in during the Irish Potato Famine. They were allowed to keep their own last names in respect for their families. It's a big point of pride for Quebec.

Usually when I'm travelling I give the Irish pubs abroad a bit of a wide berth Too many leprachauns and flashing green shamrocks....

BUT, I have to say, the best pubs in New York City all happen to be Irish pubs! I find myself going back to them again and again.

Mollys on 3rd ave & 22nd is a good spot.
I play trad music in O'Neills on 3rd and 46th on Sundays, and they have a great session going there.
Lunasa in the East Village is a good place to watch the Rubgy matches - lots of atmosphere

I miss the pubs at home though. Nothing like them in the whole world. :)
