out in the great outdoors is simply lovely...it helps if you are a good golfer, since it is rather hilly, yet at the lovely McGuirks Golf, they can help fit you with all types of golfing equipment for a enjoyable outing.
Mount Juliet Golf Club, Co. Kilkenny
Okay, they have Golf Clubs, Golf Clothing, Golf Footwear, Balls, Golf Rainwear, Carts/Bags, Accessories(besides the ones pictured below), and Jr. Golf and Fitting Days with:
"The Hazy Border is one that people seemed to enjoy and one of our seasonal beers. We always have 12 all the time, and we have specialty beers and we have seasonal beers."
"The Lillie's Bordello is considered the most luxurious indulgent entertainment in the city of Dublin and of course the tourists love it. It is a prestigious cocktail lounge and club and nowadays there is no distinction from nightclub to sophisticated bar, honestly. We sometimes have the burlesque type shows and always the atmosphere, yet it isn't a bordello, of course. If corporate parties want private events, they rent the rooms upstairs at Lillie's for 4 hours or more. For instance if today Jameson Whiskey wants to rent Lillie's for the afternoon, they can. Yet when the Club is open to the public, the public has use of it."

Met the lovely Carmel in the boutique Michelin restaurant, BANG, today. She is delightful and warm, funny and charming. "I would say people come to Bang since it is a relaxing feeling here and we don't come out at you..." she says and adds, "I've been here since a couple of months after Joseph opened Bang and I think I am starting to be the "mini me" " she says laughing. I tell her she sounds exactly like Joseph in her expressions. "Yes I guess it is a family here and we all rub off on each other. Joseph's son works here and his daughter is just starting too. The chef, Niles, is amazing, he picks his own herbs every morning and uses these wild herbs in all his dishes. When he comes back from vacation, he bounds in all full of ideas for his new dishes because he has discovered new herbs. The food is amazing. People see his food and they love the presentations and then they eat the food and they are like, "WOW", the exotic taste is amazing." says Carmel.
the man wants a whiskey or the woman wants a whiskey and the man wants a gin, we can do that. We have Porterhouse beers on tap in the Dingle Whiskey Bar, too. Of course it is the small snug that is common for whiskey bars and some people love that sophisticated specialized feeling of a whiskey bar and that is why, since the acquiring of the Dingle's Distillery 7 years now, we opened the Snug."
They have 160 whiskeys the company provides for the Snug every month...whiskey tastes 24.00 to taste 5 whiskeys and that's every Tuesday of 2018.

...one day, in 2002, Barry, the owner, is walking along Bond Street in London, saw a painting by the artist Samuel Peploes and fell in love with it. That is where the inspiration came to do Peploes.
he introduces me to Graeme, the head chef who made my very Irish Fish Pie, which is light and scrumptious and delectable, Graeme says, "I don't want to make Peploes Michelin, although I have worked at a couple of Michelins in the city. A Michelin is very formal and precise and here at Peploes while the decor and service is professional and sophisticated, it is playful and fun."
"Yes, it is about hard work when you are making a restaurant a success and keeping up the standards and respect of the team and about thinking outside of the box that makes it valuable to the guests." says Frederic and I ask if "thinking outside the box is his favorite saying since he says it all the time. "Yes!" he laughs.
To book a table please use the reservation website of: http://www.peploes.com/reservation/
and try to book a couple of days prior, although they try to always find room to everybody.

"The wall of fame, as I call it, is full of famous people including my favorite, Mr. Bill Clinton, pictured above, and Hillary is not in the picture, yet we have Woody Allen and Alfred Hitchcock on the Famous mural along with the owner and his daugthers and wife." says Frederic who shows me around the world famous restaurant of Peploes at lunch time. "You are late!" he exclaims as I walk in the door and I explain to him that I had met the prestigious and respected Mr. Monaghan at the world famous Cashmere sweater place named MONAGHANS on the way and he gave me a great pair of lovely cashmere socks. "Okay you're forgiven, inside Peploes to the bar where Filipo is waiting." he says and I walk in and the bartender Filipo entertains me with his dry sense of humor. "You are not from Ireland, I can tell." and he laughs and says that he is from Slovakia and on his way on vacation to Slovenia, where my first lady, Melania Trump is from. Asking Frederic if he would entertain the infamous Mr. and Mrs. Trump, my Presidential family if they came? "Yes of course we would. It is a honor to do that. You know we already have Mr. Clinton who says that Peploes is his favorite restaurant in Dublin and now we can have the Trumps." And Filipo quips, "Yes and Matt the Thresher only has the first lady, Mrs. Obama, visit. We have the Presidents!"
"It takes 5 goats to make one sweater and each goat lives in Mongolia. We imported goats to Ireland yet the climate is too cold for the goats to survive. Now we use only the soft fur of the belly of the goats when we shave the hair and make the sweaters. It is the finest in the world. When I first started the store in 1960, a lady would take one week and 1/2 to make one sweater.That is how delicate they are."
The one I loved is the Kilkenny and Glendalough Tour which takes you to the amazingly beautiful Medieval Capitol of Ireland in the town of Kilkenny. I loved it that much I stayed all night! The famous Brewery here is the Smithwick's and the best beer ever! The tour Guides both adorable and informative. Have fun all day at these tours. You can either elect to do the walking tour with the number one trip advisor guide in Ireland at each place or continue on a private tour. We loved to hear of the witch trials in the famous Kilkenny tour and the many ways that the locals party at all the live music venues at night. Including tap dancing! Below one of the highlights of the Kilkenny tour...the famous Alice Kyteler inn.

"The funniest thing," says Pawel on a Sunday as he and the Wild Rover girl, Ingrid, are sitting at the counter, "is the 80 year old man who comes in and shows us pictures with him on his bike and shaking the hand of the Pope. He was so proud of that." they laugh when they tell the story. "Tourists are great. They're happy to see the city and they're happy to have a chance to take the bike for the 24hrs. You must keep the bike inside if you have it 24hrs. You can't leave the bike on the street. That is the only stipulation." he says.
However, you can ride the bike around Dublin and the countryside forever, if you wish. Come to the tourist office that hosts the Wild Rover tours and meet with Kevin, who is Pawel's manager, and have a great bike!
"The BikeHire opened 3 years now in June. Today people already are out riding the bikes and we only have 30 of em. We need more and especially electric bikes we only have 2. We have 4 luxury mountain bikes and the rest of em are bike city bikes." says Jawel, the funny young owner of the cool BikeHire in Dublin. And guess where they have the bikes?

It is home to one of the largest Photo Book Libraries, "It is very difficult in Ireland to find Photography Books and we are very proud to have a large based library upstairs, mostly donated from people around the world. Downstairs you can buy books, yet the key is a photo journalist exhibition which we change a couple times per year, perhaps 8 and the artists are usually booked one year in advance; however, we have something akin to a open call every year. The artist now exhibited is Irish, she plays upon the human form and ideas, whether archaic or ancient of items to do with the human body, such as bed-ridden remedies women used to do to make themselves better; there on the artist wall she photographs her playing upon those ideas." l +353 876856169 ask for the Gallery owner: Angel. https://tlp.photoireland.org/ 2 Temple Bar located in the Center of the NightLife of Dublin
Grainne is my guide! "We have musicians from everywhere in the world who come here to record including the people that filmed the Oscar Academy Award Winner, ONCE!" she says as she guides me through the halls and recording studios of the Museum's tour. It is totally cool especially if you love musicians! Above the amazing machines of the sound engineers, one of which is the director now, "My pleasure is meeting Rihanna when she sang the Eminem piece. She was delightful. Some talk, some are total business. It just depends." he says.
And seriously what would the World of Dublin and indeed the World be without GUINNESS!? Here a world inside the world of Guinness as we know it to view the genius that went into the making of its own empire. (Hey is that the Queen?)
353(01) 408 4800 at St. James Gate in Dublin...(my birthday of Guinness!)
"When people go into a pub around the World and say give me a pint of the black stuff, they're referring to Guinness which is actually ruby red in color, not black as previously thought. However I don't think it would be quite as nice to go into a pub and say give me a pint of the ruby red stuff." says Michelle, talking about the world famous color associated with Guinness. "It sounds complicated if you don't get it right the first time, however, you just need to do it. When you're there you understand, you just have to be there to do it yourself," she says on how to pour that perfect pint!
"People love the tour since it is interactive and they can take pictures and post these, they can answer fun quizess, they can learn how to and pour a pint of Guinness and they can receive a certificate. Plus it is a great way for them to taste the Guinness." she says.
I had a personal tour guide named Michelle who is totally charming as she shows me around the world of Guinness. @ the world of Cooper?! What is a Cooper? I ask. "Coopers were the people that physically made the Barrels that the Guinness is stored in. At one time the factory employeed 300 Coopers who were resident barrell makers and that is all that they did is make the barrells. They employed one person who all that Cooper did is sniff the barrells all day long. The entire job! When the Coopers were bored or had to do other things they would utilize the wood from the barrells and make chairs and lamps and ashtrays to decorate the warehouse. The Factory and the Guinness family is known for the great work they did for society and for the better treatment of its employees." says Michelle.
Here is the amazing structure at Guinness...a remarkable marvel of 7 floors including ,"a panoramic view of the city on the top floor Pub. The steel is used from the person who built London Bridge named Arrol and it is 38 meters high and 44 meters high including the 7th floor." says Michelle. "It is 3,600 tons of steel and is the worlds largest pint shaped glass. " And the truth about the 9,000 year old lease that Arthur Guinness signed? "That is true for 1 pound, however the lease doesn't exist any longer since they now own the building and the land. It is a cool story though." she says.
The Front Door is elegance redifined. It is a restaurant and Pub, yet it isn't.You have to enter to see what I mean. The decor is stunningly beautiful and Shane, who is the resident manager/bartender, and Liam(the Publican owner)and Dean, who is Liam's son are nice fun and friendly people. The Mid-Western type if you've ever been to America, you would know what I mean. The back of the Pub is fluffy glossy luxurious curtains separating the public area from the kitchen. The tables are elegant. The one television is over the stairs heading downward, yet it has a mirror positioned so that it looks like two huge televisions. All gloss and mirrors, yet the people and food the highest quality and real substance. The first thing that Shane told me is,"In Dublin the bartender is the Pub. People come into Pubs to socialize. They want someone that they can tell the secrets to and to have a good chat. I want to shape the pub to be who I am and that is why Liam hired me. He wants a good reputation and a friendly pub. That is who I am," he says. It is true since the 30 minutes that I had at the Pub they entertained me with stories and laughter. The next time I came in there were two gentlemen sitting at the bar and one asked me if I knew the Peadar Kerneys which happens to be across the road. I said, O yes I do. I hate Peadar Kerneys since the owner is a jerk.He is really mean. To which Shane cracks up with laughter, bending over! "She is the funniest person I know." he continues laughing and I just look at him. "Here is the owner of the pub across the street-the guy who asked if you liked the pub or not!" he says. Woops!
15 Dame Street Temple Bar, 0353 01 67 7845
Dean, the son is very honest. When I ask if he loves the fact that his father owns the Pub and he has a great opportunity to work here? "No, my father makes me work here." he says and of course we all start laughing again. (Warning, you will laugh a lot at that pub!" But I guess it is alright. I like Shane alright!" he says.
The beauty and elegance of the Front Door restaurant and Pub. When I ask if it is only a restaurant, they are very adamant. "IT is a PUB!" they say...okay okay it is the most elegant PUB I've ever seen!

Now here is my experience of entering the NUMBER ONE WHISKEY STORE OF 2016, that is the number one IN THE WORLD... at Dublin...27-28 Dawson Street Dublin 2, 0353 16 75 97 44...first Alastair says hi. He is one of the owners of the coolest Whiskey store around. I am immediately given a choice of 3 whiskeys to try and loved the Scottish one which is then translated to Writer's Tears! What an odd name for a Whiskey I say, although it is quite good. Then, Celtic Cask 15, which is the signature Brand of the Store and voted the best independant bottler of Whiskey in the World, 2016, and finally the Coole Swan Irish Creme. I guess you must try your own to find which one is personally the favorite of the three.
"Mostly tourists find us since everybody loves to try free whiskey and they can free taste test here. We usually let them try 2, but if you would love to try three that is alright. That is the real reason, I think, that the tourists come"jokes Alastair. "I opened the store here in 2003 and about 3 months later, now the new Restaurant and Bar in Killarney specifically for tasting the Whiskey and of course the experience of the Whiskey. You can come now and do the Master Classes which include the blending of the whiskeys, cheese and whiskey, chocolate and whiskey, only Scottish whiskey, and on and on since we have about 10 classes." says Alastair. I am coming to do the Master's Classes on Blending the Whiskey while eating cheeses and that way I can drink more Whiskey!

Brogan's Bar is to outside sources a local bar of where you would expect the real authentic Irish people to hang out...but looks are different s is the owner, Ben Brogan. On the walls are the coolest original prints of almost all of the older Guinness Advertising campaigns full of delight and color and wit and artistic marvel. He bought the prints framed and unframed, and most of his guests, "come depending on the show..." when I assume that he means the sports show on that night he corrects me surprisingly. "No no not the sports, the show is the theater next door. They have all kinds of different shows and the audience and the actors sometimes come here before and after. The techies for the show come all the time." That is the kind of Pub that you will find here. Full of tourists and theater and creativity and yes locals that, "get off of work and the bus happens to drop or pick them up here. If they find a different bus they go to a different pub" the funny owner says.
As I open up my backpack I take out a book on the local Irish Government that I found in the bookcases on the wall..."It is such a different feel to the Pub," I say and the owner laughs. "Yes people think it is just a Pub, yet honestly we have a lot of culture in here. We have the big bookcase with books that you can take and read while you drink a Pint, take one home, bring new ones back, and I've read every book in the bookcase." he says. For such a big guy he looks more like a sporting person than a theater and book guy! Yet one of his passions is collecting the Guiness Famous Advertising Posters on the wall. The pub is a pub, yet it is a little bit different too. Loved it.
it fun to own such a high maintenance elegant restaurant? Is it work?
"O it is fun yes but everyday is different and it there is always
problems always everyday. It has been 3 and 1/2 years of hard work trust
me but now it is finally fun to see it all come together. The menu is
about 90% fish and it is about the only restaurant of its kind in
Dublin. That is why it is special and then what makes it unique."
The beauty and elegance of Matt the Thresher is unparalled in Dublin. The fish is excellent. The team formal and professional with smiles on the faces and the guests famous...

"It's been 3 and 1/2 years since I had the restaurant" Since it is a huge project as you can see from the pictures I ask if he had owned another one before he tackled this project? He starts laughing, "before that I was a farmer!" "Now my farm house stands empty...My great grandfather built it and it is a huge beautiful Victorian home. From farmer to here.! My wife is a interior designer and she designed the entire place. When it is a tavern a famous airline owner had it as a hobby and it was all dark the way a pub should be but we changed all of that. The leather settees and the colors are all ours." It is beautiful with stained glass windows high above and it even includes a library designed room where Mrs. O'bama ate. Above which is a grand piano.

"The Dolce Sicily second one is located in Temple Bar region in the Crowbar Club which is famous. We have a special coop with these cool people. In the morning til 5:00pm(17:00) is the bakery Dolce Sicily and we give breakfast here too. It is new only one month and we shall see the results yet now the people come already. When I started my bakery at 43 Dawson Street 2 and 1/2 years now I had only me and one person at the counter. Me baking and one helping me. Now I have 24 people including me! It is unbelievable. I laugh and say Wow! yet now I need time for my babies too!" says the young and lovingly owner Letizia who along with Fabio her husband and two adorable children make these wonderful Sicilian cakes for us to eat everyday!
"The cakes I bake myself. I had visited Dublin in 2005 and loved it and went back to Sicily and got married and had two lovely boys and baked and baked. I've been baking since the age of 8. Of course Sicily is known for its famous bakeries, and of course the cannoli. About 3 years since I said to my husband would you love to move from Sicily with me to Dublin and I can bake. And he said yes! Remarkable seriously. And here we are! With my husband saying he eats my sweets and has the belly to prove it!" laughs the gorgeous Letizia.
With two locations to choose from and wonderful food! The cannolis are yummy!
"I love to bake. Now I have 5 people helping me. The very first day people came down to try the bakery. Yet it is in the bad location which you have to come down the stairs and into the little bakery store. People have been coming here everyday. And everyday more people come to try the cakes. Now I have no room for my fridge! I would love to make the fancy cakes yet there isn't room for them! The people love the cannoli which I tried many recipes to make the ricotta cheese right and finally I am happy with these. Everyday I try new ideas and I love that. And I say my favorite is the mousse, definitely the mousse!" she says.
"Michael Ryan Mick, it's Mickey and that is my wife Ann we own Ryan's Air...just kidding!" says the jokesters that own the coolest Pub in Dublin...yes that is right it took me 3 years to grant the interview and chat with the young couple who've owned the Pub the last 25 years. Ha'Penny Bridge! http://hapennybridgeinn.com/ Right at the foot of the famous Bridge.TELEPHONE: 01 677 2515 ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.orgAs I walk into the bar, is the way every Irish joke starts, and when you come to Dublin you understand the underlying meaning of it...because the minute you walk into a bar the jokes start. And they never stop. It is the same this morning. I entered about 10:25am and Anne and her husband Mick sat at their own bar eating cereal. Why Ha'Penny? I ask. And he takes his old Irish money of schillings and half pennys from his pocket to show me the old Irish money.When a daily guest comes in he quips,"just showing the journalist me money I have...counting me money..." and I say that is my monthly salary of 3pence.
"You know it is a live music Pub, a comedy Pub,-" Mick starts to tell me and Anne interrupts and says, "besides Michael talking to all the customers-he is the real comedian and he doesn't care if you're a movie star or a daily customer he jokes with everybody." Mick resumes telling me that his Pub is" a musical Pub Crawl Pub everynight at 19:30pm they bring the guests in with their own Irish music and you can walk upstairs and hear the music. And in addition we have Blues on Saturday night. All the music and comedy is upstairs." he says. He invites me tonight to follow the musical Pub Crawl, which sounds kind of cool since you can hear Irish music everyday. At about 11:00am the Pub starts to get crowded with tourists and I try to follow Mick around and ask him more questions. Although it is difficult since he only jokes about life. Below is the famous Ha'penny Bridge.
In the end, it is a Pub. A cool classic Irish Pub. Upscale with the best upstairs of live music around. The owner's unbelievably young, sweet, in love and friendly. Loved these people. Could spend the entire day here learning about Ireland. O! and does everybody know that Ryan's Air received its famous colors from the county the owners come from? Tipperary. The Hurling colors of that section is Blue and gold and that is why Ryan's Air is Blue and gold. Trust me you learn a lot talking to Irish Pub owners and bartenders!
In addition is the Wellington Bridge which earned the name of the Half Penny Bridge in 1816 when they put the first bridge to join the two sides of the tiny river. "Back then a Irish man earned 3 schillings a week. It cost half penny to cross the bridge. It was a wealthy man's bridge and they would get all dandered up and stroll across the bridge. They also had little boats called Ferrys and they would go from one side to the other. Today the equivalent of what you earn in one week(for me it hasn't changed from 1816 Ireland) would cost about 100.00euros to walk across the bridge! "When we bought the Pub Anne came up with the name. You either had to take the name down Jim Mourns was on it, or make up a new name. Anne thought of the name because of the famous bridge. We found cool newspapers upstairs that come from the late 1880s. Let's take a look at it." says Mick and runs the newspapers down for us to see. In these is an advertisement for the Brays Head Hotel, the Luxury Hotel at Bray for 2pounds per week including room and board! I am hopping on a bus to Bray Today!
"The Irish changed its money in 1971 to 2001 to Irish pounds and in 2002 to the Euros. All the Irish money has animals on it...hence the big pig outside as our symbol since the ha'penny has a pig on it. When the Irish people had to change the money they went to the bank and where given euros back. The paychecks in the coming weeks were given in Euros. That is the way they introduced the euro system." tells Mick. I ask if 911 made the world change its currency? And he laughs. "No the Euros had nothing to do with 911! it was europe." he explains.
In addition my favorite Irish beer is the new one named CUTE HOOR red ale which is the tastiest ever...a big competitor to Guinness.
In the day the Dolce Sicily is located here til 17:00pm and at night a cool club. For instance on the 13th on Friday is a party for Prince and people can come and dance to purple rain! Cool club and fun cocktails to drink. It has happy hr. from 17:00pm(5pm) til 19:00pm. At the Button Factory Curved Street Temple Bar, Dublin 2....

Marguerite is beautiful and when she tells me that almost 40 years she has known her husband Akim I am trying to find where that could be possible if at all. "We used to have poetry readings in here..." HERE is a rich ruby velvet type of grapes hanging from the ceiling O hi DAAARling atmosphere of intimacy at the posh tiny cosy bar to the funny lively tables scattered in the parlor as I call it. I can only imagine laughing as in Gigi at a fancy dinner as Eva Gabor did while tasting the bordeux and lamb waving my fork at some uproariously funny joke that Gaston or some other worthy people had just told...I meet Akim who Marguerite introduces as her lovely Algerian husband who cooks every night just for her..."I have never cooked ever and he cooks especially for me..." And her favorite? "A dish of lamb and artichokes and peas...I don't know how he does it"...Akim is muslim and when the subject centers on that religion and the Emirates and Qatar and they ask if the Muslims drink alcohol I say that they would all love the wine bar with its intimacy and fun and opulence and would all probably come in to lunch and bring security to stand guard at the gate while they ate , laughed, and drank wine!
We spoke of poetry and writers and how they would definitely be inspired at the aura of the beauty of the cave and we talk of love.... because as I say when I say that I love that wine bar isn't love what it is all about?

Guy is the owner of the Cigar Emporium a specialty and rare cigar store in Dublin, "It is image and sophistication that we try to exude. I've been here about 17 years and a total of about 20 in the wholesale business but the most fun is the store and helping the people choose their cigars. "People come in here and purchase anywhere from 10Euros to 15,000 E items...they can drop 60,000 Euros at one time. It just depends." But one thing that they're all after is the expertise and advice that we can give to each and every guest." When I ask if the fact that America has a ban on Cuban cigars helps the mystique of the Cuban cigar elsewhere in the world he says definitely. "That is one of the reasons that the Cuban is so popular...o it is not allowed anywhere in America it must be good...but the Cuban cigar is one of the finest and you can definitely tell that from smoking it.
The next day when I chat with Guy he says "The cuban would be too strong for you. I shall give you one of the lightest ones we have. You can smoke it outside in Ireland but it is banned everywhere in Ireland to smoke inside. Remember DON'T inhale. Cigars can be bitter if inhaled...alll of the taste buds are at the tip of the tongue and that is what makes a cigar unique."
Okay I write that in my little notes and think of a perfect place at Dublin to smoke my Macanudo Rothschild...
And based on the elegance and sophistication of the Cigar Specialty store I chose the picture of Austin Powers to best represent the experience:)
If you would love to learn about the real handmade cigars visit the store chat with Guy, have a espresso while you tour the store with Gary, and of course chat to Barry Joyce about James Joyce and the house of Sweeny that is the Sweeny house in Dublin.
11pm tonight..The chat I had with the performers and stage manager outside is priceless but I promised that I would put there great show on tonight to give them a little extra perk. Find these great guys and girls at? at 64 South Great Georges Street Dublin

Peter's Pub a longstanding traditional Pub with a Gentleman as the Owner. Peter is the name of the original owner the last 28 years but his son is En da "It is an Irish name" he explains... as he offers me COFFEE! in the middle of a busy 6pm rush hour of beers! How dare he does he think that I look like I need sobering up? And of course I kindly accept and it is pretty darn good coffee by the way but I AM a bit envious of everybody drinking that Guiness... "Okay" he says above the roar of the customers drinking beer at Peter's..."What do you want to know about my Pub? Ask me anything..."I bite okay what kind of things does Peter's serve I naively ask and am handed tons of flyers...here is the alcoholic variety...As people dodge flying saucer plates and waitresses dangle glass mugs and people push and shove everywhere and tables are filled outside...En da calmly leans on the bar and chats with me...it is hilarious the way that it is such a calm conversation and I keep nervously glancing over my shoulder to see if he is going to go flying off the handle at any minute...but nope he keeps talking... "My father is retired now I mean he is still alvie but I am the only one that works at the Pub..." It is funny since at the moment he seems to be the only one not working...http://www.peterspub.ie/ here is a man of my own heart's advertising promo on Peter's website... the power of advertising...:)

THUNDER ROAD Ashley the supervising manager is sweet, "I've been here about 8 years. It is definitely more of a eating type bar as you can see the American style booths and it is themed with motorcycles. There used to be the revolving motorcycle in the middle of the restuarant above the bar and we moved it all. Now people come to eat and at 11pm the kitchen closes and we all do a bar type of style with a DJ then and everybody hangs out and dances and has fun. Right now it is a private pub and the owner has been here a long time. It would be kind of cool to have these in all of the major cities but I wouldn't want to have a reputation such as Hard Rock." She responds when I say that it reminds me of the Hard Rock memorabilia. "And with the economy as it is all around Europe it wouldn't be a good investment now to start opening pubs." Okay but it is a cool pub. Great food fun staff.

The Bowes pub has a bunch of local characters in it. It is the Dublin sense of humor of one liners.... as I chat with the bartender as they get ready for the game the financial anaylst to my right says, "Yes it is almost 5 o'clock and I can do my job at maybe about 7 am to 10 am and if I come early I can leave at 5 or later about 8. So I come early. And I can hang out at the pub and have a pint before I go home."
