Nice NOLA courtyard setting. Not a fake Irish pub. Soak up the history in the museum then order some Irish coffee in the courtyard. Traditional Irish music piped in. Friendly and informative management. Then order another round of Irish coffee.

This place is adorable and so well done. It is family-owned and very small, but the exhibits are professional and informative and the whole place is clean and updated. There is a coffee shop and we were surprised to find incredible drinks. We tried the:...More

This tiny Emerald set within the French Quarter is a must-see destination for those with Irish Ancestry. A wee museum that won't take a lot of your time but if you're looking for great conversation you'll surely stay longer. The pub has a large selection...More

Found this lovely little place by accident but so glad we did. It has a small comfy room to watch a short film on Irish families coming over in the 1800s. Has articles etc to look at...but the best bit a lovely courtyard to sit...More

This is a pleasant courtyard with a small museum and a bar attached. Pleasant staff, good Irish whiskey, and other drinks including a restorative ginger tea--which we earned from the barkeep was a treatment for cholera back in the days of the Irish immigration boom....More

If you are interested in Irish history, this is a must hit. The museum is not very large, but it's not the size that matters, it's the passion behind it. This is a self funded (along with visitor donations) little Irish museum proud of their...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
