    I used to work in an Irish pub (in Liverpool). They have a lot of character and charm. Some of the old Victorian pubs, here in England are just as good though.

    I like real Irish pubs. The problem is that too many bars in the US slap a shamrock on the signage for their building and call themselves an Irish pub when they are really just a sports bar that has nothing to do with Irish culture.

    Temple Bar is just where tourists go. Locals don't go to Temple Bar as it is very expensive. If people want to go to a pub that was frequented by WB Yeats then they should go to Toners in Bagot St. Anyway one thing Ireland has is plenty of great pubs.

    Johnnie Fox's pub in the Dublin Mountains is one of the most famous. It is known as Ireland's highest pub and you can sit beside a turf fire. It is very popular though and has a lot of people.

    "There are no strangers here, only people who have not yet met”



    The more traditional and older pubs would be found in the country areas.

    The Roisin Dubh in Galway is where you go for live music and comedy acts.






    One of the best pubs in Nenagh, Co Tipperary is Una Powell's.




    The Morrigan (also Mórrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses Ériu, Banba and Fódla.

    The less flat-screen TVs on the wall, the better.

    Here's a good list of Irish pubs in this article from all over the country.

    https://www.dailyedge.ie/must-visit-...94401-Nov2013/

    The oldest pub in Ireland (& in Europe and I'd make a good bet that it is the oldest in the world) is Sean's Bar in Athlone on the Co Roscommon side. It dates back to AD 900.

    Another old Irish pub is the Brazen Head who say they are the oldest but they date back to 1198. The Brazen Head is in one of the most famous parts of Dublin "The Liberties".

    The Morrigan (also Mórrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
