Although you may think that Irish Pubs need to have a local demographic which has genealogical or cultural links to Ireland, this is most certainly not the case.

Typically, wherever you decide to locate in the US, between 20% and 35% of your demographic will consider itself to be broadly of Irish, Scottish, Welsh or English heritage. However, Irish Pubs have a universal appeal across many cultures and have been extremely successful not only across the United States but also in over 120 countries worldwide.

Your desired demographics for a good location would include above average median household income, dominance in the 25-55 age group, relative high-density residential properties and total population. These statistics are easily accessible through the internet and will help you form reliable opinions.
