Irish are know for their hospitality and friendliness. True! When my rental car was broken into and our purses (with passport and such) were stolen the guards were all very helpful! I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact we were three young ladies. They found our purses and more importantly called ahead to the pub to make sure they took care of us there!
In the pubs, you go up to the bar, get your beer, and pay right away. Don't sit at a table and expect any sort of table service. Also, don't expect to be opening a tab. However, you also aren't expected to tip! Nice change from DC's 20% standard tipping practice.
Just a little research goes a long way!
|Its all worth it in the end!|
