Find the luck of the Irish in North Dakota

Not everybody is able to make a pilgrimage back to Ireland to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. And thanks to a few well-entrenched North Dakota pubs, you don’t really have to. You might not find a pot o’ gold, but you’re likely to dig up a big plate of bangers and mash and a pint of the favorite ale at these unique pubs.


At the Blarney Stone Authentic Irish Pub, try a taste of Ireland, from the Dinner in Dublin (breakfast) Saturday and Sunday mornings to the Pub Lunch and a selection of 30 draft beers.
