I bought this for my Irish father who now lives in England. He visits Ireland regularly and knows some of the pubs in this book. Would make a great present for anyone with Irish roots or also if you're planning on going on holiday there it would be a handy guide of places to stop off at for a pint! A lovely freeze frame of Irish pubs.
Great pictures and dialogue to give you a flavour of each of these magical pubs. One of the featured pubs gave us a copy to look at as we were touring Ireland. We selected a couple to go and see and were not disappointed. There's just enough history on each one to make it interesting and the writing brings the places alive. Bought my own copy as soon as I got home, I was so taken with it. Well worth the money.
this book is a delicious account of some of Irelands wonderful pubs. a box on the door of a village pub to tell of the date ot the latest funeral could only happen in Ireland. The photography is beautyful if you cannot or have not drank in a irish pub this book is for you. for us who have it brings back good memories.
A WELL WORTH BUY ...SUTTLE INSIGHT TO THE OLD WAYS OF SERVING BEER, TRADITIONS THAT TOOK PLACE IN CERTAIN QUARTES OF THE PUBS. THEY OUTREACH THE STANDARDS IN ATMOSPHERE, FREINDLYNESS AND CHARACTER BY FAR TO A LOT OF THE PUBS ON THE MAINLAND
