5 Best English and Irish pubs in Paris, France
For those who like to take time out from exploring the culture of Paris and revert to something more familiar, there are a number of English and Irish pubs around the city in which to do so. These pubs will also appeal to people from all over the world who wish to diversify their Paris experience. Below are some of my favourite.
Corcoran Irish Pub (28 Rue St André des Arts)
I love this pub as for me it typifies what an Irish bar should be like, with warm and welcoming staff, traditional Irish decor and a selection of popular drinks. There is also a superb menu which goes down especially well when enjoying one of the many live sporting events which are shown here. Live music fans will enjoy a visit here during the evenings.
Finnegan’s Wake (9 Rue des Boulangers)
This is the oldest Irish bar in the city, which is fitting seeing that it is located in the historic Latin Quarter.
The Frog and Princess (9 Rue Princesse)
This pub is part of a chain of English pubs around Paris and other cities in France. It was opened by a group of English students in the area who wanted to combine the feel of an English pub with the French culture. I enjoy it because there is still a good percentage of French who visit here, but the surroundings and drinks are all familiar.
Quiet man (5 Rue des Haudriettes)
This is an Irish bar which has an established reputation in the city. The live bands which play here in the evening are hugely popular, whilst the relaxed day time atmosphere is also enjoyable. One gets the impression that this pub is naturally Irish without having to try too hard.
Bombardier (2 Place du Pantheon)
If pushed, I would have to say that this is my favourite English Pub in Paris. It has a genuine ‘Englishness’ about it which is difficult to find in the city.
