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.

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.
