I don't think you are going to find many irish enclaves anywhere today. For the past 50 years America has only processed less than 100,000 immigrants from Ireland every decade. I don't know anyone from Ireland personally.

I understand what you mean. I have very close Irish relatives and grew up in an Irish-American neighborhood(YonkersNY). You're not going to find a dense immigrant neighborhood like in the northeast in the Tampa area or the South for that matter but I personally like the Dunedin Fl. vibe. Dunedin is the Gaelic name for Edinborough(Scotland). The town has somewhat of a "celtic" feel to it. Flanagan's Bar is owned by a Dubliner and they have entertainment and a huge St.Patricks Day celebration. They have a Highland festival and a Celtic festival(and plenty of other festivals) and it's not uncommon to have bagpipers playing around town anytime of the year. I'd recommend the town to almost anyone Irish or not. It's got a lot going on and Irish or Irish Americans would fit in just fine...
