If you're looking to experience a taste of the old Atlantic City, as depicted in the popular HBO series  "Boardwalk Empire," look no further than The Irish Pub.  In fact, The Irish Pub, at one time, was a speakeasy, back in the days of prohibition.

The history of the Irish Pub dates back to the 19th century.  It has survived hurricanes, prohibition, two world wars, high tides and low tides.  It has fed the famous and infamous and if you sit at the front table it is said eventually everybody in the world would pass by you.  Joe DiMaggio stayed at the Inn for many years.  Being situated on St. James Place & the Boardwalk, it has been identified with the game of Monopoly and the red hotels used in the game are based on the architecture of the Irish Pub.  It is within walking distance of all casinos.

Founded in 1972 by Richard and Cathy Burke, the Irish Pub is known for its award-winning taverns and restaurants which deliver a consistently authentic and fun entertainment experience and are staffed by friendly and well-trained employees.  

In addition to the restaurant and bar area, the facility offers a hotel which Frommer's Travel Magazine referred to as "a setting truly out of a Henry James or James Joyce novel."  The Irish Pub features museum qaulity memorabilia which celebrates the golden era of America from 1880 to 1930.  The Courier Post described the Irish Pub as "the most beautiful pub on earth."  Budd Schulberg, Academy Award Winning screenwriter of the film "On the Waterfront" said..."I would like to spend my last hours on earth at the Irish Pub."
