Some Tips for an Authentic Pub Experience

1. Keep it lively with Irish music — add in a few traditional dance moves, and you've got a ceilidh, a friendly Gaelic jamboree.

2. Take your time with that Guinness. A proper pint can take up to three minutes to pour!

3. Comfort and craic (meaning "fun" or "a good laugh") are at the heart of the Irish pub experience.

4. Traditional pub fare is hearty for a reason — not only is it comforting, but  eating before and while you drink is also a great way to enjoy responsibly.
