Irish Coffee - Not to be a purist, but you’ve really got to go to Ireland for an authentic Irish coffee, made from hot coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar and topped with cream. The best places to try Irish coffee in Dublin are O’Donoghue’s, just off St. Stephen’s Green, and The Temple Bar. After Ireland, the next best place is…San Francisco! It was first served there at the Buena Vista Café in 1952, after a US journalist brought the idea home, having tried it on a trip to Ireland.
