Irish Pubs are very popular in Munich, especially among expats. There are several Irish Pubs to choose from offering great Karaoke nights, Live Music, and typical Irish dishes and drinks such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, Guinness, and whiskey. Me and my international friends who live in Munich go often to Irish pubs and have a great time there.
