There are lots of places I like to drink beer, but perhaps none quite as much as an Irish pub. A lot of them in this country are a little bit phony (although still not bad); most of the ones I've been in Ireland are great. Specifically, in virtually every pub in Ireland you will get:- a good selection of beers. Guinness is always on draft; most pubs also have Murphy's or Beamish as stout alternatives. Then there is Harp, Smithwick's (avaialable in many pubs) as well as some of the more local alternatives. Many Irish pubs also have Carlsburg and a few other European/British selections.- good conversation. In an Irish pub you can start a conversation with almost anyone and you will end up enjoying it. The Irish are gregarious (some call it "blarney") and they generally like talking to Americans. Most of them have relatives here (either in the US or Canada) and enjoy telling you about their visits across the pond.- good music. Not playing all the time, but "sessions" are very popular. Sessions involve the local, non professional musicians bringing their fiddles, banjos, bodrahns (drums), flutes, pennywhistles and accordians in on a designated night and just playing away. The "band" morphs as some musicans stoll in late and others leave early.- the food. Well, you can't have everyhing.Slainte,jtmitch
