Lynch’s and Culhane’s Slug It Out for LazyLoafer’s Best Irish Pub Title


Santa Rosa Beach, FL, August 26, 2013

Across sixteen states and the District of Columbia,, the site dedicated to teaching people how to “loaf” the “lazy” way, recently asked it’s readers to pick the best Irish pub in the southern United States.  When the results were in, there was a bit of a surprise.   The two top contenders both came from Florida’s Jacksonville/Atlantic Beach area, less than ten miles apart from one another. ChoiceAwardPlaqueGraphic03

The competitors all fought hard but, in the end, the winner—Lynch’s Irish Pub of Jacksonville—eked out a narrow victory over second-place contender Culhane’s Irish Pub from Atlantic Beach.

Lynch’s, founded by Irish-born Desmond Lynch 19 years ago, is Jacksonville’s only official “US Soccer Pub,” and sponsors the “Lynch’s F.C.” Adult Soccer Association team.  The pub is located at 514 1st Street North in Jacksonville and offers a wide variety of Irish beers, whiskeys and traditional Irish cuisine as well as specialty burgers and Panini’s.

Culhane’s Irish Pub was once featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” television show.  Opened in 2005 by the four Culhane sisters—Lynda, Michelle, Mary Jane and Aine—the pub can be found at 967 Atlantic Boulevard in Atlantic Beach.  It too carries Irish beers, whiskeys, traditional dishes and pub food.

Both pubs have a loyal clientele and it showed in the voting.  The competition was close, the voting frantic and it ultimately came down to a last minute push less than an hour before the polls closed.  Ultimately, only three-percentage points separated the two, with Lynch’s edging out Culhane’s in the last few minutes.

Sounds like the beginning of a friendly rivalry.

The winner, Lynch’s, will go on to face the eventual winners of each of the other United States regions—north, midwest and west—for the ultimate Best in the United States title. will announce nominations for the northern region in the next few weeks.
