Irish, like real Irish, pubs in or near Fort Point

Trish Fontanilla asks:

Irish pub vibe in or closest to the Seaport? For whatever reason (that's a lie, I know I have a baby face), I always get approached by folks from Ireland (hi to the couple from Cork that stopped me today!) and asked where the closest pub is.

Roza Lyons on East Broadway in South Boston is the closest you will find a good Irish pub in the area. The owner is from Ireland and there’s a great vibe with the restaurant/pub.

More like an Italian pub with some Southie residents of Irish descent.

Isn't the whole point of traveling to check out things different from what you have at home? When you visit Portland from Boston to you go looking for a Dunkin Donuts or do you try out the local stuff?

I think the asker is overthinking this. The folks asked "where the nearest pub is," they're just asking where the nearest bar is, they're not asking for an Irish themed pub at all. Just send them to your favorite bar, possibly one you know has Guinness on tap, but the whole damn place doesn't need to be Irish themed.

The Eire Pub was always filled with the lads, on their best behavior too!

It's on High Street, just the other side of the Greenway. Not in Fort Point, but not too too far.

tell 'em to either ignore the Seaport & Southie and head to Dot or just go back over the bridge and wander around downtown

theres not a lot of authentic irish anywhere near the Seaport or Southie anymore

and whats left are more caricatures of irish bars and filled with bros and beckys or REAL dumpy places filled with grumpy locals

Shamrock Pub, but no Irish food. Good grill and frid seafood.

Best pub in Fort Point, and possibly the oldest, is Lucky's. It's not an Irish pub, but it's a grand place for a drink and often has live music and decent grub.
