Being Irish, it's quite comforting to know how widely-admired we are around the world.

On March 17 every year, the globe's most famous landmarks turn green in honour of St. Patrick and pints of the black stuff are raised in cities worldwide.

No matter where you travel, you're never too far from an Irish pub.  

With that in mind, we've compiled some of our favourite establishments for pints and craic no matter where you end up.

Think us of as an Irish pub version of the Lonely Planet. 


1. Paddy's Irish Pub - Cusco, Peru 

Regarded as the highest Irish-owned pub in the world. The perfect spot to rest your weary legs after trekking Machu Picchu.

2. The Wolfhound - Seoul, South Korea 

Right in the middle of trendy Itaewon, this place goes later than anywhere else. Their fish and chips are perhaps the best in Asia. A second Korean branch opened in Busan in 2010. 

3. The Auld Shillelagh - London, England

Not far from home but still makes you miss the Emerald Isle. The atmosphere on big GAA days is something else. 

4. The Irish Village - Dubai, UAE

Recently voted the best Irish bar in the world.

5. Healy Macs - Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia

A massive part of the ex pat scene in Malaysia.

6. The Kilkenny - Buenos Aires, Argentina

A must visit in a very cool city. 

7. The James Joyce - Prague, Czech Republic

Wet your whistle in one of Europe's finest Irish establishments.

8. Father Ted's -  Auckland, New Zealand

Couldn't be further away from Ireland but you'll feel right at home here.

9. The Dead Rabbit - New York, USA

One of the Big Apple's finer spots for a Guinness. Perfect for a post-shopping tipple.

10. The Drunken Poet - Melbourne, Australia

Will be known to thousands of Irish who have made the long trek Down Under.
