Irish Pubs, Bars and Restaurants in Long Beach, CA

Long Beach, CA seems to have almost as many Irish pubs, bars and restaurants as there are Mexican restaurants - almost! And definitely more than any other Southern California city. There are a couple Irish bars on Long Beach's Dive Bar Row on 4th Street and a few in Downtown Long Beach and scattered around the city, but a one mile stretch of 2nd Street through Belmont Shore and Naples has the greatest number of Irish pubs per yard.

    Auld Dubliner

    Auld Dubliner in Long Beach
    Auld Dubliner in Long Beach, CA.

    Of all the Irish bars in Long Beach, Auld Dubliner reminds me most of Ireland, although the food is better than most of what I ate in Ireland. They bring in a variety of Irish and cover bands/soloists, but the acoustics are all hard surfaces so it's really loud, even before the music starts.

    Quinn's is a small neighborhood bar just off of 2nd Street in Belmont Shore that's popular with locals. It's more of a sports bar now than an Irish bar. They even took the "Irish" out of their name and website. They close earlier than most bars, so if you're on a pub crawl through the Shore, you might want to start here.
