Turns out Guinness does taste better in Ireland! Beer is served frosty cold here, so dare to be bold and try something new. We suggest opting for a locally made beer, like Guinness, in the presence of these real beer drinkers, whom generally think Bud Light tastes like water. We met an intense and entertaining cab driver who cursed like a sailor and suggested a local pub for us to check out. We are rarely steered wrong by locals when traveling to new places, with exceptions to some hotel staff. The pub was filled with live Irish music by locals recanting oppression by the English in a humorous way. Pictured are mussels and one of the best pot pies I have ever had, and there wasn’t even a puff pasty crust! They are big on brown bread or Guinness bread. I threw in a few pictures from The Temple Bar Area (a drinking district in Dublin), so you get an idea of how cute it looks when you’re walking around Dublin and pub-hopping.
