Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Thrillist selected the top 21 Irish pubs in the nation, and The Burren in Davis Square made the list.

Here’s what Thrillist had to say:

“Everybody loves The Burren: older Tufts students, Irish ex-pats, dudes who just moved here from Cambridge to save money on rent even though it’s not really that much cheaper. Everybody. For one, it checks all the Irish pub boxes (Hearty Irish eats? Proper pours of Guinness? A lot of Irish music?), and, for two, it was opened by a pair of Irish musicians (Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello) and truly tries to honor its roots in song by featuring live traditional Irish music every night (learn Irish step-dancing on Mondays with Ger Cooney!) alongside a veritable smorgasbord of other genres.”

Two other Boston bars made the list as well: Doyle’s Cafe and Brendan Behan Pub, both in Jamaica Plain.

Two of The Burren’s neighbors also received top honors recently, as The Saloon was picked as one of the best whiskey bars in America, Diesel Cafe as one of the best coffee shops.

The Burren is at 247 Elm St.
