Whether referred to as an ale house, a tavern, an inn, or the modern-day pub, it occupies a very special place in Irish history and culture yet surprisingly little has been written about it. This book tells the history of pubs in an entertaining and informative way. It describes all the major developments in the history of the pub and unearths many amusing facts and figures about the licensed trade in the context of Irish history in general. It's a celebration of these houses and the people who lived and worked in them. Also included are profiles, with a photograph and brief description, of 100 traditional pubs that have been owned by the same families for over 100 years. These pubs are scattered throughout Ireland and a map is included to help readers locate them.
