It’s St. Patrick’s Day! The day where everyone in Boston seems to be Irish, at least for the day. Boston is iconic for many things and that includes its annual St. Patrick’s Day parade (taking place this Sunday at 1pm) and of course Irish pubs. Typically, the pubs open super early on St. Patrick’s Day (most at 8am) so you can get your fill of green beer and corned beef. Here, we will take a look at 9 of the best Irish Pubs in the city.
