The Irish Pub
Purchase to review
This nostalgic and entertaining tour of Ireland's most individual hostelries presents the historic pubs that epitomize the country's essential charm. They range from the richly decorated Victorian bars of Belfast and Dublin to country shop bars that double as grocery stores, where the decor consists of shelves laden with tins of fruit and packets of tea. Each pub is covered in four or six pages, with about 1,000 words of colorful description, history and anecdote, and atmospheric photographs that capture its interior and ambiance.
