"Irish Pub"

A place you visit ONLY when in Ireland.

Yes, it is a stereotype that the Irish people are drunks. This whole thread is borderline racist. Highly offensive. OVER THE LINE!

An "Irish Pub" is ANY bar that will still serve me.

I remember going to an "English pub" when over in the states...it couldn't have been further from the fact. I assume like most things outside of their place of origin they are just fake generic versions....like there is a shitty pizza place near me called NYC pizza. I seriously doubt they are giving new York pizzerias a run for their money. hah. that being said I had a great night in the fake English pub. I held court at the bar schooling everyone as to what was wrong with the place (in relation to it being an English pub) aside from all that bullshit though the true makings of both a british boozer can be hard to define...you know one of youre in one. I guess it's a bit like what you yankies say about dive bars vs fake dives that have been made to look like dives for a hipster cliental. it shouldn't have stools all the way along the bar though...one or two at most..we stand to drink or prop the bar up.

Fake English pub. HA! That's great!

In one establishment I frequented...there were bar stools but they were either missing the seat like the cushion part or missing the stool altogether with nothing more than a hole in the floor. The ones that were still standing were ripped and cracked leather.

Irish pubs seem quasi-legitimate here as almost everyone white person in Aus seems to have some sort of ancestral tie to the green land, myself included. Pubs seem to be defined by headache inducing carpet and an insidious damp. Needs more smoke though for true authenticity (wait, can you still smoke inside in Ireland?)

Whiskey menu of the local "Irish" pub.

Had the Redbreast 12 today. Pretty nice, but nothing fantastic. I appreciate the variety they stock.

Any recommendations?

Will drop in for another pint of Guinness and a new whiskey very soon. Love the atmosphere of the place.

The West Cork Bog Oak sounds intriguing.

Kilbeggin Rye is very good. The price looks good too. Please give it a try and give us a report.

A fine choice, DB. Much less pricey than the Redbreast 12, but decidedly superior. Smokey and smooth.

Yes, I’m back at the pub before work. Hope the whiskey smell isn’t detectable.

Will try the Bog Oak for Patchez after this Guinness.

Cheers to good drink, my friends!
