Look out for the symbol for quality assured pubs in Ireland.
Spotting it means you are in for a welcome like no other, as these establishments specialise in two areas:
Céad míle fáilte – a warm welcome and a friendly service.
Quality guarantee – in cleanliness, safety, security and comfort.
This winter, raise a glass to toast the start of the festive season in one of Ireland's welcoming pubs.
The Irish pub holds a special place in our hearts and for good reason. This institution has held so many roles over the years – from undertaker to grocery store – but perhaps none is as important as its status as the unofficial tourist office.
In between serving customers, lending an ear to a punter or even regaling with a story themselves, friendly staff find time to help visitors plan their trip. And as everyone knows, there’s no better knowledge than the insider advice that hails from a local.
So pull up a chair this Christmas for a pint, a trad session or a simple chat with friends in the comfort of your local Irish pub.
