Overview

A perfect selection of Irish pubs that whisks readers away into the enchanting spirit of Old Ireland.
Whether you want to hide away in the Wicklow Hills, cradling a glass of beer in a wood-paneled snug; gather round a turf fire, serenaded by fiddle players; or sip quietly in the cubbyhole of a Victorian bar in the center of Dublin, this book takes you into pubs that epitomize the essential charm of Old Ireland.
In this cheerful celebration, more than 250 photographs capture the essence of pubs from every part of Ireland. The lively texts explain anything and everything of interest about each of the featured bars, from the local history and family tales surrounding each establishment's owners to the drinks typically served and the colorful characters who gather there.
Simply structured into three chapters—"Urban Retreats," "Rural Charm," and "Contemporary Heritage"—the book's beautiful interiors and charming stories are an invaluable chronicle of traditional Irish life.
