I've driven across the country, and it feels like each place I explore isn't much different than the next. There's so much sprawl and blandness. Can anyone recommend places rich in Irish culture? Or sections of cities with a lot of Irish influence?

When I think of Boston, I normally think of Ireland for some odd reason.
I would also say Providence too.

I found this map of Irish ancestry on Wikipedia. It may help.

It looks like MA and NY State are your best bets.

South Boston and the suburbs to the southeast - the "Irish Riviera" - are the most heavily Irish parts of the city.

Providence is more Italian than Irish, but there is a very diverse mix these days - lots of Hispanics, in addition to the long-standing Portuguese and French-Canadian communities.

Pearl River, NY
Harrison/Kearny , NJ (an odd mix of traditional Irish Americans & Hispanics of all sorts, which makes for a very easy intermingling of cultures, believe it or not)

Seems like we get variants on this questions on occasion. The following threads might help.

No.1 Irish American city in the USA

Irish Neighborhoods

Where are the Irish neighborhoods?

Maybe some names in them will help.

It seems from my travels that Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia would have the highest concentration possibly the highest influence

Pearl River, NY and Spring Lake, NJ also have a strong Irish population. They're smaller cities, but predominately Irish none the less.
