The city's Irish bars come in several forms: the historic landmark from the mid-1800s, the tchotchke-laden tourist trap, the homage to the motherland, the flat-screen-filled sports bar. Patrick Kavanagh's falls into the last category, and it's a rowdy one at that. The work of legendary Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh isn't necessarily on the mind of the patrons here--a mix of the after-work crew and bridge-and-tunnel crowd--but rugby and Guinness are, and that's certainly Irish enough.
