The Irish Pub Scene

“What are the best pubs in Ireland?  I checked online, and found 50 different “Top 10” lists for Pubs to visit Ireland.  How can The Crown Bar in Belfast Northern Irelandthat be?”  When working with client’s who are looking to experience the famous pub atmosphere in Ireland, we tend to hear those things quite often.  The answer isn’t really clear or straightforward; but not to worry……it’s pretty hard to go wrong.  At last count there were almost 7200 pubs in Ireland, over 2400 restaurants, and nearly 1000 hotels.  Needless to say there is no shortage of options, or for that matter a great pint of Guinness.

So whether Leinster, Munster, Connaught, or Ulster, make your own top 10 list of your favorite pubs, as you explore the Emerald Isle.
