best pubs in Ireland

I always freeze when people ask me where to go out coz I'm afraid i'll say somewhere where that particular person will hate so maybe this thread should mention your favourite beverage haunts and even places you hated (and why....)

The Ferryman (along the quays)
was at a work party there lately...like the name it feels like your drinking on a ship..pretty cool!! It does help that there's usually hot bankers in suits there :D

Lanigans
I like this place because you are guaranteed to run into someone from work and there is always a good atmosphere, only bad thing is it closes quite early!!

Wow, I'm surprised you've never been to Kehoes, Grogans, or Bruxelles!! You've been living in Dublin about a year now!! :lol:

I was actually thinking of compiling a list of these for an app. Like a Pub Crawl generator! What ya reckon?

There's a good app made by a startup company in Dublin called GreatNite. Its pretty buggy, surprisingly, but its worth a look (until I make my one).

that would actually be really popular coming up to Christmas, especially if people were able to unselect pubs they've been to before....
would you have to get pubs permission or anything like that?

year and a half actually, always seem to go to same places but have work Christmas pub crawl in week and a half so maybe might be able to tick more pubs off my list then...provided I survive the ordeal.. I lost my wallet at last years one :(
