Top 3 Local Irish Pubs to Celebrate At:
This pub is a personal favorite of mine with a cozy atmosphere, great beers on tap, and a fantastic Pub Trivia night every Wednesday. Located in Falls Church, Virginia, it is conveniently nestled between 66 and Route 7 and also features a free parking lot adjacent to the bar.
Around since 2006 McGinty’s is an authentic Irish Pub in Silver Spring that is simply huge inside and is great for large groups. Enjoy one (or several) of their many brews on tap or traditional Irish fare.
Just steps from Verizon Center and all the action Chinatown has to offer lies a quaint little Irish Pub that is tucked down 7th street. Accented with huge tree trunks and earthy materials that feels very Hobbitesque, this pub is known for great brews and good times.
