Avoid the ‘Three Carrots’ in Belgrade.. didn’t even have Guinness on tap and i found the name to be silly. The one in Novi Sad was much better (its listed in the LP).

The Dubliner in Bratislava would be better if they poured Guinness well.

There is a great bookstore in central Sarajevo that has Guinness (in bottles) and a quaint pub attached. Top notch!

Guinness on tap is really easy to come by in pubs all over the Adriatic Coast of Croatia. Can’t recommend anything in particular but Zagreb does have a cool Lord of the Rings themed pub.

Bled, Slovenia has a great theme pub near the hostel which has amazing food and the craic on tap.

Becketts in Budapest is decent.

Can’t remember where I drank my Guinness in Romania but I know I did somewhere.

Malones (I think – whatever.. its in the LP) is in Baku, Azerbaijan and I was lucky to get my pint in, as a few days after I arrived, the country was officially dry (coincidence? I also feel special knowing that I contributed to drinking a country out of Guinness!)

3 Alley Pub – Cheap (by local standards) well poured pints in Itaewon, Seoul. Also, there is O’Kims (Kim being the family name of 20% of all Koreans) and Buck Mulligans (know the owner… never found his bar). I think there is another Dubliner too, but I cant recall because Im always drunk in Korea. All of those are in Seoul.

Was pretty worried about finding one in Tblisi, Georgia. Found 4 instead. Glasnost indeed! And Georgian beer is fantastic too! (one of my favourites, which says a lot)

Hope that helps!

Slainte!

There are three Irish bars in Bucharest, and I am in the process of setting up a Celtic supporters club over there. As for the names of the pubs, can’t remember, always too hammered!

http://www.celticbar…

This is a list of bars around the world where Glasgow Celtic fans can
find games on T.V, feel welcome and drink Guinness, most are Irish bars but not all are, where there are Celtic supporters clubs attached they are listed next to the pub name in yellow.

One of the Romanian Irish bars is called The Harp.

Most of the Irish bars are soulless, unless they have solid connections to the Popes XI, Ireland is great but your love of Hoops must be greater!

A Saturday evening after a Celtic home game in the Gallowgate, Glasgow will blow away any perception of a Irish pub you have, better than anything Dublin or the rest of the world has to offer.

SinnFein, I’ve been in all three of the pubs you mention.

I reckon I must have got it in a can somewhere, Sighisoara seems to be my best recollection, but thats pretty hazy. Ah no, pub in Barasov.. just came to me… some English wank…

jboy… whats the name of the place by the Barrowlands? Ended up there cold and wet refusing to pay 20 quid for the Tool concert (not that i really cared) and getting the red carpet being pointed out every single picture of 1967. Nice bloody place.. even though it made me mate from Aberdeen feel uncomoftable. no concern for the sheepshagger though!

Jif, Bairds, and just down the road is the Tolbooth in Trongate as mentioned earlier.

Just up the hill in High Street is McCuills, best post match parties in this place, in May even though the Gers had won the Scottish Cup, a mate told me that it was a cracker. the Bhoys lost but win, lose or draw, get yourself to McCuills after a Cup final. Last Old Firm match of the season it was bursting and bouncing!

What a place, Celtic supporters clubs from all over Europe come to party here !

There are a number of "Irish" pubs in Chicago, but there is nothing Irish about them. Somehow, somewhere, each of these pubs has a similar story: all-Ameircan guy with Irish great-great grandmother considers huimself "Irish" even though he’s never been to Ireland and couldn’t name the current Irish prime minister if his life depended on it. Opens an "Irish" pub and makes money attracting like-minded yankee yuppies.

There was a pub in the northwest side frequented by real Irish poeple, but as soon as the Irish-Americans discovered it, the Irish customers fled.

In Paris, there are no "Irish" pubs, just pubs. One of them has a lepreachaun on its sign, but does not try to pass itself as Irish and all of the staff at Parisian pubs are British, French, or continental Europeans.

Jif,

nice list you’ve made of the Eastern Countries. Did you really get to Azerbaidjan and Georgia?! Weird coutries…

I’ll be in Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria this summer. Hope to bring some news to add to the list.

I’ve always been a giant fan of The Common Ground and just around the corner, The Kells (fun seeing the paddy wagon out front on weekend nights in case a fight breaks out) on Beacon (is it Beacon?)…both in Allston.

In LA my favorite is Irelands 32 on Burbank Blvd. in Van Nuys. Saw the world cup matches there. The singer from Flogging Molly frequents that place.

As for pubs in Europe, I had a great time at the one in Salzburg, but I can’t remember the name…think it was Malloy’s. Anyone else remember the name?

Did you like "Dublin" though? I thought it was a bit ‘sterile’. The atmosphere (or should I say lack of) was not at all what I am used to in Irish pubs.

Found Buck Mulligan’s in Seoul, its at the City Hall stop, and Guinness costs a whopping 17,000 won, which works out to being 14 Euro or 9 pound. Apparently this is why the bar is by the press club… mere mortals cannot afford such refreshment, but it IS the best Guinness you will have in Korea.

Sheridan’s Irish House house is in the Dong Khoi area of HCMC (Saigon). it was closed when I got there, but apprently, draught Guinness is unavailable in Viet Nam.

Sinn Fein… sure did make it to two of the three caucus countries… it was fantastic travelling, certainly one of my all time travel high lites, I’d really like to go back soon and include Armenia, as Im sure I could find a pint there!

Just back from east Sydney and north east Australia…and by golly the Irish Pubs wernt that good…But I guess being Irish I have an unfair advantage and a biased opinion…..Have to say that the best Irish pub (dosent claim to be one but it flys the flag outside) is The Nags Head in Glebe, Sydney…
But I guess as its the weekend I will go and sample some real Irish pubs in Dublin…Ha Ha

There’s a sh*t load of ‘em in Madrid. Don’t know addresses. Just go to Sol and start to walk outward. O’neill’s, Kitty O’Shea’s, O’connor’s are a few of them.

I went to the other one. It was right in that strip of bars along the river on the old side of town. They had great pizza (odd I thought, for an Irish pub, but whatever sells, I guess).

And not like anyone would dare do it (besides me and my insane friends), but NEVER get a Guinness if you are at the Conga Room on Wilshire in LA. By far the worst I’ve ever had. Pure evil. You have been warned.

There is a great Irish Pub in Viseu, Portugal it is called the Irish Pub and is well worth a visit and I recommend it to everyone it is right beside their cathedral and there is also a great little pub in San Sabastian, Spain that is wonderful!!

Irish pubs are a big con. They hang a bicycle on the wall, stick a Guiness sign outside, add an "O" before the name and put the prices up. The only place to enjoy a pint in a traditional Irish pub and enjoy a good Irish atmosphere, is in Ireland (with a few exceptions).

I see that you still have posted new Irish pubs abroad, eventhough as somebody has said before, some of them just does not have the atmosphere as an Irish Pub should have. Anyway, Irish pub or so-called pubs found during your trips should be all posted here!

Thank you!

My old town has no Irish pub. One of the few in Europe I’d say…It’s impossible to even try to list all of them but I’ll give you a few of my favourites:

Montpellier, France has three of them, owned by the same family:
O’Carolans at place Saint Anne.
Fitzpatricks, in the "real" city center, can’t remember the name of the street, it’s just off the main shopping street though.
Irish Tavern, down in Les Beaux Arts. Great places all of them! Loads of exchangestudents and not so many french but that’s the way with the Irish pubs, huh?

Have to agree with whatever was said about the pubs in Salzburg, there’s three of them there if I’m not mistaken. At least it was and I’d say The Shamrock is the best. All of them at the same street down by the river where ALL the pubs are…

Got one here in my new town, Kalmar, Sweden (don’t really recommend it but you can bump into some nice people if you’re lucky), Molly Malones just beside Larmtorget.

Talking Molly Malones, the one in Barcelona is not bad either, just off Las Ramblas…

Anyway, there’s nothing like a real Irish pub, O’Connors, Salthill, Galway for example. But the whole thing about liking the pubs or not has only to do with the atmosphere in the pub at the time, and that is different from night to night…

Skål!

2) There is one place where you’re definitely not gonna find some overrated, neon-signposted, "oirish&quotub, and that’s in Ireland. Why not go and see what the real thing’s like?

A friend of mine has spent the last 2 years working his way around the Irish Bars of the world,
He went on a weekend break with all the lads to Madrid for some footie match and ended up gettin a job in THE IRISH ROVER. He stayed there for 4months then moved out to the Islands, worked in THE CELTIC WEDGE -Gran Canaria for 6months then hit Brussels and workd the WILD GEESE for a few months then went to Cologne and worked FLANAGANS he is now workin in THE COCK AND BULL in Bangkok! Irish bars are great because there are so many of them around the world no matter where you go you are almost guaranteed a hand gettin a job!

Plus the irish drink more so the tips are better!

I think the term Irish pub should be redefined:

a: must serve Guinness only imported from Ireland

b: music played should all be trditional Irish music (or rebel songs)

c: serve Irish food (stew, boiled ham, spuds etc)

d: have sawdust on the floor I jest

What do you think ??

The term Irish pub is way too loose now, many of the bars opened now aren’t really irish (only in name)

jboy makes some good points that most of us already knew.

But why are there not Scottish pubs? With a larger population than Ireland, Im sure the number of people of Scottish descent must be quite similar. Yet everywhere you look there is an Irish pub, and the only Scottish Pub I can think of is the Scottish Embassy in Gibraltar. Every ‘Irish Pub’ Ive been into has so much kitsch and crap in (You should see a Korean Irish bar.. shudder), you easily could have Fergusson’s or something with kilted staff and bagpipes on the walls. But yet, this rarely occurs.

There was an intersting article on differences between the two diasporas in the Economsit a few months back that might have offered some insights had I not lost it.

So why Irish Pubs and not Scottish ones? Does Scottish get lumped into the British Pub moniker?

Discuss please… all insights and cutdowns are welcomed.

Take a trip to Glasgow my friend and you will see why.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Glasgow and everything Scottish but a lot of their pubs, if you can call them pubs, leave a lot to be desired and if you found one in Barcelona you wouldn’t want to go in there. I’ve been into some, for want of a better term, drinking dens where the tables are nailed to the linolium floor and the buildings were purposely designed without windows. Characterless and dreary. Great atmosphere but not very inviting.
I realise this reply is a bit of a generalisation and appologise if any Scotts take offence.

Now a question: Do you have to be Irish to work in an Irish pub ?

I agree with Jboys points. A lot of people cosider the bar I work in to be Irish, because the owner is Irish as well as the theme. I do not. The only time we have any trad is during St. Patrick’s Day week.

Just because someone named the place O’(name) or Mc(name), and they serve corned beef, doesn’t mean it’s Irish. And contrary to popular opinion, corned beef is NOT a traditional Irish meal.

Hi guys! Thanks for keep posting all about Irish pubs. This is certainly one of the most successful chat of eurotrip.com

My last trip was to Morocco but I only went to deep Morocco where people are not even allowed to drink alcohol. Hope to restart travelling!

When entering dry zones of the world one should sneak a few cans of Guinness painted black and taped together in a binoculars case!

Just been to Praha last week and there were some noce Irish pubs. I think one of the best would be in the Staromestske Namesti, the square where the astronomical clock is. I don’t remember the name of it but had a great ambiance and great food!

Not too many pubs in Prague that serve cider, even the Irish ones.

The James Joyce has Bullmers on draught, at least it did a few years ago.

If you want ‘Irish pubs’ then come to Australia. Everywhere you turn, wherever you are, there’s a pub claiming to be ‘Irish’!!! That said, some are very good, others are not so good- as someone said before- they just stick an ‘o’ in front of the name and call it authentic! Don’t know what the ones in other countries are like but generally here the prereqresites for an irish pub are- a name that’s remotely celtic, some kitcsh memoribilia on the walls, a couple of either very dodgy or very good musos, an eclectic mix of drunken 45 yr olds and pissed uni students…and a round pool table. Having said that, some of the best nights out that i’ve had have been in an irish pub, something about the atmosphere.
I’m looking forward to actually visiting the real thing and comparing it. Does anyone know of any Aussie pubs in Ireland??!!!! lol
