Default irish pubs

Any one know of an Irish pub locally, preferrably one that doesn't have 50 large screens each blaring a different sports event?

If it's a good one with a semblance of authenticity it doesn't matter

siamsa in stroudsburg is fine. We went to the Banshee and thought the service was terrible but would give it a second chance.

This is after coming back from home where the pubs are a huge social scene and a place to unwind but not to get trashed.

Having been in some pubs in GB (London, York, Chester, Liverpool, "Edinburrah", Inverness and a cple of quaint ones in the Highlands I understand and appreciate the social aspect. Everyone we met was a friend before the first beer was done. We like to sit and nurse a pint or two, enjoy some fishnchips, bangers n tatties, and be able to get to the door when you're ready to go, lol.

I get your point. Dont think I am a terrible parent, but my 9 year old loves to go into the pubs at home and order a bottle of coke, sit down with his book and get lost in the story.

I love the pubs at home that are down by the water, with a roaring fire and a cat or dog walking around. You can talk if you want, or not ; nobody bothers you.

I havent seen that scene here at all. Pubs here are for getting trashed in ; at least it seems to be. Maybe a good idea??

The Banshee...no TVs, they play Irish music, and also have a lot of live Irish music. Great beer selection and very good, reasonably priced food.

Stay away from Kildare's, the place is a total rip-off and there's nothing authentic about the place...its a trap to soak the hotel guests and college kids. I paid $5.75 for a Guinness there....I expect to pay $6 for a beer at a Phillies game, but not at a bar in Scranton. My jaw dropped when they said "$5.75" after they poured my Guinness, I though they mistakely added someone else's drink to my tab. I expect maybe 4 bucks for a Guinness, not almost six!
