COLCHESTER, CT (WFSB) -

Many people have a favorite corner pub or restaurant, but there is a very popular Irish bar in Colchester.

The Inishmor is a bit more popular this year thanks to a Buzz Feed breakdown of the best Irish bars in each state.

"Great food, great fun - wait, the best part, great drinks! Great drinks and the fact that this place has won best Irish pub in Connecticut, cheers to them,” said Eileen Ushchak, of Colchester.

"Great food, great atmosphere, the owner is just a genuinely nice guy,” said Sean Spatafora, of Colchester.

The Inishmor is named after an Emerald Isle town, but as for the bar, it got singled-out in the review for its whiskey and big draft beer list.

"We really try to, we rotate as much as possible - stay within Connecticut - try to get the freshest stuff we can, which is normally not a problem if you're working with local breweries,” said Alex Levere, who owns Inishmor.

The Buzz Feed ranking was put together with the help of Yelp, which is a different site where users can rate bars and restaurants.

They determined the winners by combing through reviews, counting stars, and using an algorithm.
