The best Irish pub in every US state has been revealed

A LIST of the best Irish Pub in every US state has been published in the build-up to St Patrick’s Day.

With less than three weeks to go until the big day, Delish is getting in the spirit of the Emerald Isle with a rundown of the best Irish bars America has to offer.

The team over at the food and recipe website have put together an extensive list of pubs that could have you clamouring for a pint of the black stuff.

“Hearty beer, hearty fare, and hearty conversation—an Irish pub is so much more than a bar,” author Courtney Iseman writes.

“Pubs are places of community that offer fun for the whole family during the day and for adults at night, and they do it all with an Irish smile.”

Among the notable highlights is McSorley’s Old Ale House, a New York City Irish pub that is so old, its list of previous patrons includes Abraham Lincoln.

Not only that: McSorley’s only has two beers on tap refused to serve women until 1970.

News of McSorley's inclusion will be welcome throughout New York following a difficult few months for the beloved Irish pub.

Back in January, the owner of McSorley's sadly passed away at the age of 80.

Matty Maher, originally from Threecastles, Co. Kilkenny, had owned McSorely's since 1977, had been battling lung cancer for some time.

That the bar features on such a prestigious list in testament to his efforts and passion for his work.
