6 Ways to get your Irish Coffee Fix

Irish coffee, unlike green beer, is actually drunk in Ireland. There’s an added comfort to coddling a warm mug of coffee, especially with a splash (or heavy pour) of whiskey is added.

As Darren Comer, Dublin native and co-owner of The Marlay House says, Irish coffee is best after a meal, or in cold and rainy weather (which we’ve unfortunately had for the past few weeks.) And while the weather has turned sunny, we still have cool evenings that warrant a steamy mug. We suggest in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, you go for an Irish coffee. Here are a few spots to get your fix.
