Where else would you go on St. Patrick's Day but an Irish pub. It was great, as not only a pub but a restaurant too. They tell me that the decor was shipped over from Ireland years ago and I can believe it. Real atmosphere....More

Went here during the afternoon to watch a soccer match and the bar tender was happy to change the channel for us. Great vibes with a delicious drink menu, from sangria to beers. Good prices and a nice low key crowd for the afternoon.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
