Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Irish Food From These Local Irish Pubs


Whether you’re a full-blooded Irishman or you couldn’t hail further from the Green Isle, this March 17, we all get to be Irish for the day when we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Here in Jersey City, you can do that with authentic Irish food and drinks from our favorite local Irish bars and restaurants, all of which are offering takeout and delivery in addition to dine-in services.

Ready for a bite of bangers and mash, a sip (or a few!) of Guinness and a helping of Irish soda bread? Head to these spots located near your Beacon apartment for a meal worth celebrating.

McSwiggan’s Pub, located at 110 1st St, Hoboken which is 10 minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a classic Irish pub featuring burgers, brunch, sandwiches, entrees and all-you-can-eat specials.

Even after more than 20 years of service to the community, McSwiggans bears the congenial atmosphere of the traditional Irish pub, the hearty camaraderie of the sports bar, and the up-tempo excitement of a trendy nightspot, depending on when you visit.

Dorrian’s Red Hand, located at 555 Washington Blvd, Jersey City which is eight minutes from your Beacon apartment, is the New Jersey outpost of an NYC bar offering comfort Irish eats, draft beers and TVs in a classic pub setting.

In the 50+ years since it opened, Dorrian’s Red Hand has expanded from a humble corner bar serving loyal regulars to a fully-realized restaurant space with an outdoor cafe and an intimate back room with its own bar. However, they have proudly maintained that old neighborhood charm while adapting with the tastes, trends and needs of the modern-day customers.
