St. Patrick’s Day is one of Savannah’s most celebrated holidays. What better way to honor the Irish, than to visit an Irish pub? There’s music and plenty of Guinness beer to go around. Some of the pubs are even offering special deals to early customers, but it’s only for one day.
Kevin Barry’s Irish Pub

Kevin Barry’s had celebrated St. Patty’s for the past 33 years in Savannah.

O’Connell’s Irish Pub

O’ Connell’s may be one of the smallest Irish Pubs, but it is also one of the most authentic.
