The Irish like beer. That is no secret. My husband and I went to Ireland with his family several years ago. We enjoyed visiting lots of pubs and having a pint (or two) and having a meal. The food served in the pubs in Ireland are fabulous. We never had a bad meal. They are fresh, hot and plentiful. My family likes Guiness and are pretty vocal how good the Guiness is in Ireland and you just can't get a good Guiness in the states. I loved walking by and seeing the empty kegs stacked up outside waiting to be replaced with new full kegs. Cheers!
