THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA IRISH GUIDE
The San Francisco Bay Area has one of the
healthiest Irish communities in the world. Excelling in entertainment, the arts, business
and recreation the Irish have played a vital role in the success of this thriving region.
The expatriate population in the area is
thought to be approximately 100,000 in number with several thousand more tourists,
business travelers and more recently students. This year has seen record numbers of
students enter the area making an immediate and positive impact on San Francisco
Traditionally the Irish abroad have been very resourceful,
extremely cultured and well organized and San Francisco provides a perfect testament to
this. The huge number of Irish organizations, centers, pubs and restaurants, shops and
newspapers operating in the bay area is a reflection of how thriving the population is.
