I went into pubs almost every night I was in Ireland. I did a bit of pub crawling in the major cities I visited, including Dublin and Gallway. My 2 friends and I popped in for dinner, had a standard Cheesburger and Carlsberg and found they were going to have traditional irish music later in the evening. So we came back later around 9 pm and were greeted with a cadre of young talented musicians. Everyone we met in the bar was nice, and I felt it was a great place to meet local, hard working Irishman and women. Its a beautiful interior, a real departure from the crap I'm used to here in the states, and it made me a bit envious that I wouldn't be coming home to such a chill place here stateside. It was by far, my favorite pub experience in Ireland (I went around the entire country) next to the literary pub crawl I did in Dublin.
Highly recommend for an authentic, relaxed, funny, enjoyable time.
