Irish Pub

Dublin 6

Dublin 6

So, I've actually been to Dublin, and let me tell you: this place ain't no Dublin. Dublin has people, noise and good times; this place has none of that. May...
The Irish Rogue

The Irish Rogue

I'm always a little skeptical of Irish pubs that feel the need to actually put the word Irish in their name. It would be like a sushi restaurant calling its...
The Irish Pub

The Irish Pub

Well, it is Irish. We know this because we heard at least two U2 songs as we drank a couple pints while the sun was still shining and the Times Square crowd fil...

Manchester Pub

We here at The Survey don't know much about British football culture. We've seen it firsthand in London, and we're honestly a little put off by the male/fem...

Puck Fair

Kevin St. James

St. Andrews

If the phrase "if it's not Scottish, it's crap" is to be taken seriously, then by the transitive property of geometric theory, this place isn't crap. Actual...

Banshee Pub

From the group that brought you Trinity Pub, comes another one of those places that just inspires drunken tomfoolery. Granted, when we walked in for happy h...
Finnegan's Wake

Finnegan’s Wake

Unfortunately the name of this joint is very apropos. It made me feel very sad--mainly for this Finnegan guy, as nobody bothered to show up for his funeral. All...
