St. Patrick’s Day is several months away, but you don’t want to wait until that holiday to enjoy a great Irish pub in Pennsylvania. After all, Pennsylvania has so many great Irish pubs, you couldn’t hit them all on St. Patrick’s Day, so you might as well enjoy them year-round.

Now, one bar is being called the best Irish pub in Pennsylvania. Eat This, Not That put together a nationwide list ranking the best Irish pubs in every state. “There’s not much better than cozying up in a proper Irish pub with a pint of Guinness or Irish coffee on a chilly day,” they state in the article. “The best Irish pubs offer a civilized noise level, show local sports (but aren’t sports bars), serve a nice bit of pub food, and are the kind of place you could take your parents or meet your friend—or meet new friends—on a Saturday night.”

They added, “A tall order, yes, but we’ve applied these standards to our exhaustive search for the best Irish pub in every state. We scoured reviews, talked to locals, and looked back on our travels around the country to put together a definitive list of our favorite Irish pub in every state. Slánte!”

So, what’s tops in our state? Mullaney’s Harp & Fiddle in Pittsburgh. “This quaint pub is where Pittsburgh’s St. Pat’s day festivities kick-off, and in this bustling pub you’ll find an ample whiskey selection and top-notch pub grub,” Eat This, Not That wrote. As for close by states, in New Jersey, The Shannon Rose in Ramsey was the No. 1 pick, and in New York, it’s Donovan’s Pub in Queens. Find the full list of the best Irish pubs in America here.
