Erin Go Brookline

An authentic Irish pub—where?



ou can ride the Red Line to Southie for an authentic Irish pub experience, or you can try one of the most overlooked alternatives: O’Leary’s, a relaxed and often unnoticed pub serving up good Irish fare and a large array of draft beers on Beacon Street in Brookline, of all places. This neighborhood establishment, in easy walking distance from Fenway Park, caters to young and old with casual décor and live music—including traditional Irish seisiuns at 7 p.m. on Sundays. For a special treat, try to the Guinness beef stew, a generous portion of tender beef, carrots, and potatoes in a rich broth. Vitale



As Irish bars pop in unlikely neighborhoods like Brookline, the number on Dorchester Avenue, Boston’s onetime capital of Irish pubs, has fallen from dozens to about 10.
