Ireland is country that is not only defined by its many historical landmarks or its very beautiful natural environment. It is also defined by the Irish social life which revolves around the pub. A trip to Ireland is never complete without visiting one of Ireland’s famous pubs. One of the more popular pubs in Dublin is Mulligan’s Pub. It is one of the oldest pubs in Dublin and has acquired a character that’s unique to itself because of its age. It has been said that a pint of Guinness at Mulligan’s is one of the best in the city. A great many famous people have come by to visit this landmark pub, among them is John F. Kennedy who was a regular in 1945 when he was working for the Hearst newspapers. Actually, Mulligan’s has become a favorite haunt of journalists, maybe because two of the major dailies in Ireland have offices near the pub. The pub has long been associated with the Theatre Royal which has its headquarters across the street. Its walls are decorated with theater posters that recall its prime. Mulligan’s has also been the favorite meeting place of The Society for The Preservation of The Dublin Accent. The pub has three bars and also boasts of a large lounge upstairs. This is decorated with Victorian furniture. Merchants from the Corn Exchange used to hold its banquets here. Dubliners hold a special place in their hearts for the pub. In fact it is always refered to as “Mulligan’s of Poolberg Street” in an attempt to distinguish it from other copycat Mulligan’s in the city. Tourists who travel by car through Ireland should not forget to stop over for a pint or two.
