Ireland's pubs

Johnnie Fox's Pub, County Dublin

Ever wondered what makes Ireland's pubs so special?

When it comes to craic (fun) and culture, Ireland's pubs are the place to be. There's nothing quite like enjoying that warm welcome as you perch atop a bar stool with a creamy pint of "the black stuff" (or a cocktail if you prefer)!

Feel the infectious rhythm of traditional Irish music at The Celt on Talbot Street in Dublin city. Cosy up to an open fire in the charming Sean's Bar, right in the heart of Ireland's Ancient East. Or soak up the idyllic surroundings of the Crosskeys Inn in County Antrim, one of the oldest thatched pubs in Northern Ireland. You'll find great pubs everywhere, from scenic stretches of the Wild Atlantic Way to cosmopolitan city hubs, and one thing unites them – that sense of community, tradition and a love of storytelling.

These are the places where friendships are formed and memories are made. And no matter where you go on the island of Ireland, that sense of hospitality never falters. So sit yourself down, order in a round and let us show you around Ireland's iconic pub scene.
