Where around New Haven can we meet for St. Patrick's dinner?

Looking to go out with a group of friends and celebrate St Pat's day around the New Haven area but not New Haven cause of the parking there. We vary from Seymour, Madison, Hamden, and Bridgeport so I figure around New Haven could be central. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Richie

    we're trying to stay outside of New Haven because of the parking and all the local irish pubs will be crazy that day.

      Anna Liffey's is MUCH better for food. Great fish and chips, decent bangers and mash.

        I've only been to Hamden Playwright for ale, so I don't know about the food. But it's a fun place, LOUD MUSIC, with outdoor tables.

          I think we are going to the CookHouse in Branford,not typically Irish but it will work.

            Since I just came backk pumped from seeing a performance of "The Irish and How They Got That Way", I will let my 1/32 Irish heritage answer this. Anna Liffey's, 17 Whitney Av., and Playwright, 144 Temple St are the stereotypical New Haven Irish Pub/Restaurants, and you can bet they will be crowded on St. Pat's day. Playright has a second site at 1232 Whitney Ave. Hamden, but I've never been there so can't tell you what to expect. Old Dublin Pub, 171 Quinnipiac St. in Wallingford and Ceilli's, at 29 Water St. Guilford are also possibilities.
