    Be sure to take a walk through the restaurant side. The man that curates the artwork has an incredible eye. You will see the best artwork in JP at this place. Wish the galleries would follow suit.

    The bar is a hidden gem that features a large stone fireplace with a wood fire and an Irish snug feel. A perfect place to have cozy conversations but the Gate's real treasure is the kitchen. Read more

    With both a dining room and pub, Canary Square is big on comfort foods like shepherd' pie and fish and chips. An inviting atmosphere makes this Irish pub a friendly, homey destination. Read more

    If you only visit the bar here (and that's easy to do), you'll miss out on the Gate's real treasure -- its kitchen. Besides standard pub fare, the high-end dishes are hearty. Read more

    Our favorite Irish Pub in town keeps it mercifully simple: a great beer and whiskey list, an old stone fireplace, and nary a four-leaf clover in sight. Read more

    Boston's long been an Irish town, and this is straight out of the oldcountry (it even has a fireplace). Try the Shepherd's Pie and drink in theauthenticity.

    A simple, homey Irish pub with a cozy fireplace ablaze in winter. Enjoy a pint and snack on succulent mussels! -Tania Peterson, Top Chef Just Desserts

    The pub side is cozy, with wood tables and a roaring fire. It’s a brilliant place to spend the afternoon, with Wi-Fi and Guinness.

    On the restaurant side? Try the tuna nicoise salad. It is amazing and makes a meal unto itself.

    A bar that has a fireplace and games feels more like your friend's living room than a night out on the town, and that’s what makes this bar appealing Read more

    Love the St Pats vibe here. Civilized but lively. No danger of a BU student puking on you.
