Reason 2: Cosy pubs

If you ever wondered why Ireland’s pubs are so adored, look behind the beer.

Pubs in Ireland aren’t just about drinking (mind you, we do recommend the craft beers). For example: Yeats is said to have taken his only pub drink in Dublin’s Toner’s. Of course, we can’t blame him. It may just have the most perfect pub snug on the entire island. What’s a snug? It’s a secret little pub seat that’s usually nicely settled into a quiet corner and sometimes closed off by its very own door. In Titanic’s hometown, Belfast’s Crown Bar Liquor Saloon is Ireland’s only gas-lit bar and some of the booths have their own service buttons. Just buzz for beer! Out west in Dingle, Foxy John’s doesn’t just serve pints, it also doubles as a hardware store. Similarly, Morrissey’s, in the Queen’s County of Laois, is a slice of old school pub perfection masquerading as a grocery store and Down’s Grace Neill's may just be the most haunted pub in the world.

Like the sound of our cosy pubs? There’s more where that came from.
