As the Irish say, Sláinte - which is a cheer to good health. If you are looking for a good Irish pub, Long Island has plenty. Here are just five we picked for you to try.


The Rabbit's Foot Bar and Grill, Hicksville


A new pub opened by a Manhattan lawyer who wanted to open a pub just like the ones he would frequent in New York City to work and meet clients in a casual locale. The name was inspired by a friend and partner of the founder who said of the venture that they needed “good food, a good location and a little bit of luck.”


Location: 645 South Broadway Hicksville, (516) 605-0015.


The Irish Poet, Wantagh
