San Francisco boasts a healthy Irish population and many Irish bars. If you only have time to visit one, make it The Plough and Stars on Clement Street.Plough and Stars — Photo courtesy of San Francisco Days
Not only do they know how to pour a pint, if your idea of house music involves accordions and penny whistles, then you'll have a lively night of dancing ahead of you, as well.Music at The Plough — Photo courtesy of Deborah Crooks
Locals favor this place, too, so you can learn about both San Francisco and Ireland all in one place. And whether it's a meal beforehand or a late nigh snack after, Clement Street offers a wide range of fantastic restaurants.
