Paris is known for its traditional French cafes, bakeries, and bistros, all offering the best of French culture and cuisine. There are, however, a number of Irish pubs in the French capital, known for their iconic beers, distinctly welcoming atmosphere, and their wide offer of entertainment.
Whether you are a tourist wanting to discover a piece of Irish culture in Paris, or an Irishman looking for a taste of home, the city has lots to offer.
We will go through some of the best Irish pubs in Paris, from the cosiest and intimate to the pubs offering the craziest nights out.
The Green Linnet
Open since 2003, The Green Linnet is a lovely Irish pub in the heart of Paris, moments away from the stunning Hôtel de Ville. Given its central location, The Green Linnet is visited by both tourists who come to try classic Irish beer and Irish people looking for a taste of home.
The pub is warm and welcoming, with several billiard tables, dart boards, and live music. Each Wednesday, The Green Linnet hosts very popular quiz nights — the clever winners get to come home with a cheeky bottle of champagne!
Saturdays are the liveliest at The Green Linnet: people flock to the pub to dance and listen to the great live music.

One of the branches of the popular Cocoran’s chain (with other bars in Clichy, Bastille, and Grands Boulevards), Corcoran’s St-Michel is in Paris’ Latin Quarter. The neighbourhood is home to the Sorbonne University and has many student cafes, so is known for attracting a younger crowd.
Corcoran’s St-Michel is a large venue, with live music being played every day on their terrace, and with ample seating inside for cosy Irish food and drinks. The pub also has large TVs that broadcast live sports, making Corcoran’s an ideal venue to watch football or rugby matches.

Ha’Penny Bridge is by La Tour-Maubourg Metro station, minutes away from the iconic Champ de Mars and the picturesque river Seine. The pub is thus in the heart of Paris, so Ha’Penny Bridge is sure to mark the beginning of a great night in the city!

O’Sullivans (By The Mill)
Beloved by Parisians and tourists alike, O’Sullivans is a chain that has Irish pubs all across Paris. Some venues include Grands Boulevards, Montmartre, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The venue we especially recommend is the By The Mill Branch – neighbour to the iconic Moulin Rouge!
By The Mill has lots to offer, a bar, restaurant, and club. The newly-refurbished restaurant is open every day of the week, from 6pm to 11pm and has a lovely menu. From classic bar food like chicken wings to more gourmet plates like Chef’s Chicken Curry, the restaurant has options for everyone.
The pub is open late, until 5 am every day of the week! The front part of the pub offers a wide selection of beers. The back part of the pub, or “concert hall”, hosts regular live music events and cabaret performances.
For those looking for relaxing options, there are also quiz and bingo nights, TVs with live sports, and even cinema nights.
By The Mill is a one-stop shop for anything you might be looking for from an Irish pub in Paris. A must during your trip to Paris!

Black Mad Crawler
More than a simple Irish pub, the Black Mad Crawler also has its own brewery. New beers are regularly introduced, switching up the menu enough so that you will never be bored of what the pub has to offer.
Their newest option is the Zansara, a pils in the German tradition, introduced on the menu in the start of 2023.
We highly recommend the Black Mad Crawler for true beer lovers who are on the hunt for fresh and original brews.
The venue is also very welcoming, with outside seating on a quiet street. Despite its quiet setting, the Black Mad Crawler is very central, minutes away from République station.
There are also three screens for live sports events, with regular broadcasts of rugby and football.

The traditional decor will make any Irishman feel right at home in The Hideout – think of the pub as a real piece of Ireland away from home.
