  • With four-leaf clovers and kelly-green signs sprinkled throughout the neighborhood, there's no mistaking that this area of the Bronx is predominantly Irish. But in Woodlawn, the culture runs far deeper than funny green hats on St. Patrick's Day. Irish immigrants have been settling in the neighborhood for years, carrying with them time-honored traditions that permeate the quaint, row house–lined streets. If you're craving a traditional Irish breakfast, Celtic jam sessions and more perfectly poured Guinnesses than you can shake a shillelagh at, Little Ireland should be your first stop in the Bronx. Nearby Van Cortlandt Park is ideal for a picnic or a round of golf, and at the end of the day, stop by one of the area's many pubs to throw back a brew with the locals.
