Ten Best Irish Pubs & Restaurants in South Florida

6. Mickey Byrne's Irish Pub Restaurant

Mickey Byrne's in downtown Hollywood pours a hell of a lot of pints of Guinness, but the pub isn't above showing a little local love to the fine brews made on this side of the pond. In fact, its rotating list of 18 taps includes American craft beer -- even some made in Florida -- right alongside Irish favorites like Harp Lager and England's Newcastle Brown Ale. Sip that pint while taking in a game of footy on one of the big-screen HD TVs, and don't worry about tripping over shamrock paraphernalia as you navigate your way to your seat: This bar, which opened in November 2008, has a toned-down approach to re-creating an Irish vibe.


5. Maguire's Hill 16

You're not, like, obligated to get a Guinness at this Fort Lauderdale pub, which is run by people actually from Ireland and throws one of the biggest St. Pat's parties in Broward, but it couldn't really hurt. A favorite haunt of New Times staffers, Maguire's has a utilitarian quality to it, in that it's a spot for all occasions: a jumping-off point for a night of hard drinking, postwork happy-hour boozing, dinner with Mom and Dad, a solo pint to sit and contemplate life's great injustices -- whatever your bag.
