If you have been to Salt Lake City, Utah for St. Patrick’s Day or you just like going to Irish Pubs for a bit of Irish blarney and Irish luck, you might wonder why the local Irish Pub favorite Port O’Call is not on the list of best Irish Pubs. Sadly in 2008, the Federal Government, under eminent domain, took the Port O’Call location after 20 years of being in business. Port O’Call was one of Salt Lake City’s favorite Irish Pubs and is now closed.
However, you can still celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with green beer specials, traditional Irish food, and live Irish music including bagpipes, at these favorite Irish Pubs in Salt Lake City, Utah:
