Luck of the Irish

1. Whether you celebrate at the Buckhead or Midtown location, Fadó Irish Pub serves up noshworthy wings marinated for 24 hours in Guinness barbecue. Tip: Hit the pub with your lads and lassies during happy hour for a round of Jameson Black Barrel Old Fashioneds to wash them all down. @fadoirishpub

2. A trip across the pond for a bite to eat might be out of the question, but a drive OTP to Roswell for Mac McGee Irish Pub’s European-inspired Scotch Egg is always on tap. Think: breaded sausage stuffed with a soft-boiled egg, all fried to perfection. Yes, please! @macmcgeepub

3. Nothing says Irish tradition like a breakfast plate from Meehan’s Public House that’s chock-full of leprechaun-approved eats like rashers and bangers (translation: sausage and ham), beans, soda bread, and black-and-white pudding. Pile all that next to your choice of eggs and you’ve got yourself a morning feast. @meehanspub

4. At Va-Hi’s comfort-food go-to Murphy’s, executive chef Ian Winslade knows that Irish brewski and brisket go together like the Kardashians and salad. A meaty masterpiece like the resto’s famed Guinness braised beef brisket and its flavorful sidekicks—horseradish mashed potatoes, roasted carrots and green beans—earns a dancing Kimoji in our book. @murphysatlanta

5. Raise a glass to the country that gave us a reason to paint the town green at iconic ATL watering hole The Vortex, where the bartenders serve a mean Irish mule (pictured above) filled to the brim with Jameson whiskey, ginger beer and bitters. Cheers! @thevortexatl

6. What’s brunch at West Egg Cafe without a cup of Batdorf & Bronson coffee spiked with Jameson whiskey? Answer: incomplete. For Westside weekenders with a craving for something just a wee bit stronger than ordinary java, a few sips of this pick-me-up is sure to do the trick. @westeggcafe
