Dublin is renowned for its pubs – all are warm and welcoming. There is no need to give pub recommendations; whichever Irish pub you end up in, you will be guaranteed to enjoy the atmosphere.
In James Joyce’s Ulysses, set in Dublin in 1904, the main character Leopold Bloom remarks that “a good puzzle would be to cross Dublin without passing a pub”. Today, 116 years later, only one solution to the puzzle has been found – however, it is not perfect because the route passes several hotel bars!
