One of my favourite things, the genius that is Guinness adverts; I love this T.V ad, showing snow falling around Ireland in a mostly monochromatic colour scheme.
Scenes of a peaceful Dublin with a sprinkling of snow, all glistening with Christmas lights, a shot of the famous Black & white pub front of O’Connell’s in Co. Meath.Finishing off with gates at Guinness Dublin with a layer of snow on top....just like your favourite pint of plain!!Many people say Christmas starts when they see the Coca Cola Advert, to me it’s the Guinness one!!Here is some more festive cheer old & new from the folks at Guinness!!
This pub situated on Borris' Main Street in Co.Carlow is full of rustic charm.
This authentic shop style pub with a traditional shop layout, counter also serving a pint of Guinness is as most shop style pubs were laid out.Still functioning as a pub / shop / hardware its shelves, walls & ceiling heaving with hardware bits & bobs.It was refurbished following a fire a number of years ago by Angela Murphy Design Associates & I have to say, what a great job!!It looks just as it should be, or as it was!!I have been here a good few times, I love sitting in the shop side amongst the many hardware items for sale,wellies hanging from the ceiling, paint rollers, hammers, saws, sweeping brushes, shelves stacked with nails, screws & lots of other hardware stock.It's such a cosy pub & with it’s brightly painted bar counters & rich warm timber.The back bar is simple in design, mainly shelving to hold all the shop items & this section of the pub is mostly bar counter, where shop & pub combine seamlessly.Simple schoolhouse style & cooley pendants light up this area & add to the atmosphere.There is a Victorian style lounge are next door with more comfortable style seating.The shopfront in O'Sheas is a beautiful simple, elegant style, with some original style features such as the window bars & also the built in canopy blind which rolls back into the fascia, supporting arms resting on the side of the shopfront.Overhead 3 gorgeous decorative swan neck lights add a touch of Victorian splendour to this lovely shopfront.The welcome is always warm in O'Shea's as is the decor!
Love Irish Pubs!!!Love your Pub!!!♥
