Irish Village Boston, Guide & Review
This Brighton mainstay is a timeless Irish pub with squishy black-vinyl seats, a solid wood bar, and gleaming brass fixtures. First opened in 1970, Irish Village doesn’t even have a website—but it has adapted in other ways, such as offering a thoroughly modern selection of craft beer on draft from the likes of nearby Notch Brewing, Fiddlehead IPA, Jack’s Abby, and others. (Guinness still tastes the same, though—just the way we like it.) As for food, your only option is a Toastie, but when the oozing-cheese sandwich arrives at your booth we’re sure you won’t mind.
The IV, as it’s affectionately known, is as welcoming to Allston-Brighton twentysomethings as it is to its expatriate Irish regulars, who may even find common ground over a game of darts. Irish Village opens Monday 4:00 pm – 11:00 pm, Friday 4:00 pm – 12:00 am, Saturday 12:00 pm – 12:00 am, and Sunday 12:00 pm – 11:00 pm. Irish Village features favorites of local bars and everyone’s welcoming and friendly, awesome jukebox, good atmosphere, stylish interior, hip atmosphere, free WI-FI, and bartenders are friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to give beer tastes. , live sports, big TVs, and creative cocktails.
Great, classic Irish spot with a big selection of beers. What a great place to be! Highly recommended!
