Savour the sweet tastes of the capital
Many visitors to Dublin quickly grow weary of the artificial 'Dublin pubs' to be found in Temple Bar. There, you will find one particular element lacking: actual Dubliners!
The diversity of pubs we'll experience:
Local - get out of the tourist bubble and come meet some locals. Once we've had 'a few scoops', you'll be chatting to regulars like a. . . regular.
Irish Beers - Pubs with rare Irish beers, some of which are unavailable outside Ireland, others are unavailable outside the pub;
Music - No one would doubt that Dublin has a heroic amount of pubs, but the ones with a good Traditional Irish music session are rare enough to be counted on 1 hand.
Literary - stories & characters abound in Irish pubs. Some of them inspire pen to paper & some even become immortalised in works of fiction, poetry or theatre, forever having their name carved on the DNA of Dublin.
Guinness - why do the Irish only drink Guinness in 'old man pubs'?
Don't come with an empty stomach, but come thirsty! Prepare to become a Dubliner!
We'll stay and have a drink in no fewer than 4 pubs.
We'll also steal a glance into a couple others.
