St. Patrick's Day is this Sunday. If you're looking for crappy-tasting green beer and an obnoxious bar decorated with ugly green bunting and paper leprechauns you can go to the many, many, many faux-Irish bars that litter the landscape like snakes probably plagued 5th-century Ireland.

But you won't do that. No dear reader, you only deserve the best. We've rounded up the best Irish bars across the country. Remember to drink responsibly, treat the bartenders and waitresses nicely and stay away from the green beer.
