Now, a lavishly illustrated book, Irish Pubs in America, represents a personal selection of what its two authors consider to be outstanding examples of Irish pubs in the US.
Ron Wallace and Bob Myers’ selection of pubs for this book was based on personal knowledge and recommendations by well-informed people as well as extensive research.
In fact the pair put in 35,000 air-miles visiting a variety of US pubs from quite small and intimate to large establishments capable of serving hundreds of people at a time. Some are independently owned, others part of pub group or corporation.
Ron & Bob spent many hours with pub owners, managers, employees and patrons digging out the secrets that made these pubs unique.
Some of the long-cherished family recipes for the signature dishes of these pubs have also been put into the book which examines 51 Irish pubs across the US. In many ways the authors’ work must represent the longest pub-crawl in history.
This coffee table tome is available in the Temple Bar bar in Dublin and we suggest that pubs and hotels around the country could do a lot worse than stock this book to sell to their visiting American tourists.
