"What I would love guests to do is come meet my bartenders since they are great fun and to enjoy a drink before dinner. We are known for our food and its reputation, yet, in essence now we are becoming known for great cocktails,too." The lounge bar area is beautiful and you can sit and drink a couple of cocktails before dinner. The restaurant is open all day, yet the kitchen closes after 3:00pm and reopens at 5:00pm."
His food has hefty portions that taste great on the palette and yet exotic, too.

"Alright follow me," is the start of almost every great tour and so I follow Mario through the very elegant multi-level and multi-cultural experience known as OPIUM! "Here is the Botanical Garden section that the guests love at lunch, especially and at night they can hear the music with its very own DJ, yet the nightclub is upstairs." says Mario as I gasp at it's beauty and follow him along the very elegant and totally cool OPIUM.
"The Thai food is excellent with chef Phillip, and as a matter of fact, being a member of the Mercantile Group, we have great chefs come to us. We have a great reputation." says Mario.
Yet do you know you can find rare whiskeys, too, here. The oldest bottle of Bushmill's 1,250.00euros.
https://celticwhiskeyclub.com/ at 27 to 28 Dawson Street Dublin.
Scotland is world known for its single malt and blended whiskies. The one here is a richly flavoured one that has been finished in a Pedro Ximemex Sherry puncheon, according to the Celtic Whiskey experts, of which I am learning! Bottles 663 have only been produced world wide. The one here is 104.00euros.
Okay, some of my favorite master classes include the blender's challenge which is only 50.00 euros and takes 90 minutes for you to learn how to and to make your own cystal decanter of Whiskey. (I threw the crystal decanter in to entice your wives, for the gentlemen that want to rush to make their own whiskeys!)
I am very sure that you can find the whiskey that you love here and if you miss it just take the Blender's Class and make your own!
Located at 93 new street, Killarney which means literally ChurchLarney so don't be killing whiskeys! (064) 6 63 5700

"At one time, the city of Dublin wanted to develop the Temple Bar region to be one big Bus Stop, and we as a community formed the three triangles of protesting this idea to make it the Cutural Center of over 23 establishments that it is today. We squatted, we protested and we lobbied to keep the charm of the cobblestoned area of today's Temple Bar and to form a cultural oasis of music, and art, and theater and film and literature: both live readings and written words.
I have a Sound Recording studio that while professional is regarded as one of the 5th best in the world, along with the Temple Lane Recordings, and Temple Lane Rehearsal studios where Theatrical Artists and Singers and Musicians can rehearse and perform in the rooms on a daily or weekly basis. I have the Sound Recording School where all you have to do is apply and be accepted to receive a educational visa as a foreigner; I have the Crowbar, the Button Factory with great Musical Acts from around the world performing, the Rock and Roll Museum, which is a 1 hr. interactive Museum that takes you through the process of actually becoming a Rock and Roll Legend, and the Wax Musuem, which is very interactive." says Paddy Dunning in a very fast and very fact filled interview. He is truly amazing to talk to. Tons of energy and vision. When I meet his marketing director and comment on that fact, she starts laughing. Paddy says, "Yes, I have the ideas and the vision and my marketing director is here to tell me to be logical and let me know what can be done and what is difficult." They say as I nod and laugh and say yes that is the way with real creative talent. You have to have logic and vision with each other! A HUGELY successful luxury sound recording studio and lodge in the country of Ireland is named Grouse Lodge, which "was initially visited at first and built for Micheal Jackson, although he died before recording there." says Paddy. https://www.facebook.com/grouse.lodge/
And the Giant Project? "It is a futuristic visionary huge Giant that we would love to build and be interactive in major cities of the world. With a educational purpose of letting the children and adults, too, be aware that we have to be ecologically conscious of the world around us, we have visual and audio messages as they exit the Giant Museum. It is a large giant, perhaps the size of the Statue of Liberty, that people walk inside and can walk outside the shoulders of on a rooftop platform to visually see the city. The Giant says "Good Morning every morning as it comes awake, opening its eyes, and says Happy Birthday to the "giant" legend of that city, such as say Steve Jobs of San Francisco, if it happens to be the Birthday of that great Giant of a man. It highlights the Giants of society and let's say if we put one in Washington DC. I would love to do that. We could highlight the dignitaries visiting that day. The entire face of the Giant and the entire body in a futuristic visual effect changes to that person. If it is Steve Jobs' birthday that day, it changes to show Steve Jobs. It is a vision of mine in initial stages and I do have the video to show you." he says as I watch the 4 minute video and am TOTALLY LOVING THE HUGE PROJECT. The Giant (@TheGiantCompany) | Twitter
Let's say that Paddy Dunning is a visionary and his vision continues! http://media.interthemepark.com/.../the-giant-company...

It is great fun to dress up and express yourself, see if you have stage fright, and really experience the role of the Rock and Roller! "I started as a musician myself, " says Paddy, "and since I was too loud in my parent's backyard, I had to relocate myself to just opposite where the CrowBar i today as a youth. I love music, and I love the musicians around the world, especially proud of the Irish Musicians. The Rock and Roll Museum is a great interactive 1 hr. tour of legends of Rock and Roll and let's you experience for yourself what it really takes to become a Rock and Roll player.
You can role play, wear wigs, play instruments and sign a contract...but beware...contracts need to have the fine print read!" he says laughing when I ask if the Rock and Roll World is uncorrupt and favors the musicians! Located at Curved Street Temple Bar.
In addition the professionals come to use one of the 5 best sound recording studios in the world, and as long as you are here, you should experience that to give your voice a chance at greatness! https://irishrocknrollmuseum.com/alter.../rehearsal-studios/
"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.
The food is amazing as can be seen on the photos, yet mosey on down to experience the real Italian culture of Italy right here in Dublin for yourself! As to me I am a pizza lover! Love it especially real pizza such as the people from Naples only know how to make!

...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!"
"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? At my favorite tour company, WILD ROVER OFFICE! Located at 33 Bachelor's Walk, Dublin! Below is why Jawel says they take deposits!

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!
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.
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.

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:

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.
O'Sheas Irish Restaurant
Phone: +35 3 (0)1 67 1-9049
Above guests at the formal wonderful Irish restaurant and below Martin and his father outside the O'Sheas. That is the family name right? I ask? "Of course, we're Irish!" he 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."
