Visit Tipperary Hill
Don’t want to stay Downtown? Head over to Tipperary Hill, where the only upside down stoplight exists as a result of Irish settlers not standing for “Irish” green being on the bottom. Check out one of the many neighborhood pubs. Get a craft beer at Now And Later, a Blarney burger at Blarney Stone or embrace the live music at Coleman’s. Tipperary Hill is Syracuse's very own Irish neighborhood. Permanent neighborhood staples include Irish pubs, shamrock detailed features and a history of it's own. Make sure to check out the world's only Upside Down Traffic Light where residents of years past made sure Irish green would be over British red. Looking to shop Irish imports?
