As the Portland food scene expands, we continue to be spoiled with a huge range of different cuisines from around the world; however, Portland’s Irish culinary sector may be the exception. Over the past two years, Portland has lost two of its favorite Irish restaurants, with the informal, indefinite closure of the O’Neill Pub and the Raven and Rose (and by extension, the Rookery). However, those who stay strong and upright offer remarkable Irish food and drink. From Vancouver to Lake Oswego, the greater Portland area offers traditional Irish cuisine in a variety of different atmospheres with their own unique twists. As the weather gets rainier and colder, these are the places that provide comfort in the form of shepherd’s pie, soda bread and, of course, a pint of Guinness. As usual, this card is unrated; it is geographically organized.
