For the Irish, a Pub is far more than a bar...a Pub is a community gathering place - an overgrown "family room" where members of the neighborhood meet to share the latest news, laugh, and ofttimes solve the world's problems. At an Irish Pub, the idea of being a "regular" is, well, a bit of a lunacy...one can no more be a regular in a Pub than a regular in one's own home! For the Irish, the Pub is a home - not for its beer, or stout, or libations, but for its environment of.. family...comfort...and safety from the stormy rains that grow the Irish countryside so emerald green in grass and clover. For a traveler, the attraction of the Pub is the Irish philosophy that there are no strangers, but rather friends not yet met. To enter a Pub is to drop by a friend's home...the greeting is warm and genuine, the service is gracious, the experience is relaxing and fun.
