Beautiful documentary
26 July 2016 | by bergantoSee all my reviews

I travel a lot abroad with business and have visited irish bars far and wide, so I really enjoyed this documentary when it was released. I've gifted it to some international friends and it is really a joy to watch. It's the most honest and charming representation of the people and places that are the guardians of what is sadly a dying institution. Many irish pubs have none of the character and hospitality featured in this movie but a little bit of research in advance will serve any visitor to Ireland well. The characters and stories depicted are unique but yet easily recognisable if you've ever visited an irish pub outside of Temple Bar in Dublin. Can't recommend it enough, may be difficult for non-irish viewers to understand some of the accents but if you want to see the real, native facets and ingredients that make up the real Irish Pub experience do yourself a favour and enjoy this lovely selection of stories and pubs.. The documentary maker has really excelled here, waiting to see his Older than Ireland documentary next!
