The capital city of Ireland, which is Dublin, has more than 1.5 million residents and is very popular for the pubs that serve good drinks. While all of that is true, those are just some of the facts that will blow your minds off when visiting the city. If you are considering spending a vacation in Dublin or you are just interested about what’s in there, then you might as well read on the following facts.
Craft beers aren’t a thing in Dublin. At the most popular pubs in the city, it’s all about the classic drinks. When you ask a bartender for a pint of beer, you will surely get a pint of Guinness. Beyond that, there are actually other Irish beers that you should take note of, as well as few hot Irish drinks that are best for the cold, rainy days.
Smithwike’s is an Irish Ale that is older than the Guinness. It dates back to the 14th century and is produced in the oldest brewery in Ireland — the biggest ale producer in the country. If you find Guiness as a little heavy, switch to Smithwick’s for something light but still tasty.
Some tourists think that working as bartender while discovering Ireland is a good way to earn money, get to know the locals, and develop a familiarity in Dublin. Although some of those things can be true, finding an actual legal job in a bar in Dublin is not as easy as you think. While Dublin is popular for its many pubs, as of 2010, any vacant job openings go to unemployed Ireland locals and citizens since they are experiencing a 14% unemployment rate; this is according to the report made by the Associated Press.
