We spent several hours at Paddy O's on a cold December night. We had a dozen raw oysters and several drinks, all of which were delicious. By far, however, was the lovely discussion we had with the bartender, Alan. A true Irishman from Dublin, he offered suggestions and travel tips for our visit to Boston. We shared stories and lively conversation. He made us feel welcome and relaxed in this cozy pub. We felt like regulars on our first visit. Can't wait to return to Boston.
