Barcelona, a photo a day

20 miles to Baile Atha Cliath


A relative newcomer on the Irish pub scene in  Barcelona  is Dunnes, on Via Laietana. We went to try it out yesterday. The food was OK, the music great (a mix of early 70es and early 90es), the decoration a kind of Irish theme park, full of the usual cliches. The usual rugby flags, Leinster, Munster, Connacht. Not sure about any of the staff being Irish though. At least they have the Irish Times, and Sky Sport. And some of the good stuff as well, Guinness…

  2. Wonder why pubs are considered to be Irish icons? 'Cause the Irish are a bunch of drinkers? I would also think an Irish pub in Barcelona would have to be something of an Irish theme park! 🙂

    Are there a lot of Irish living in Barcelona? Are Barcelonians (is that a word) infatuated with all things Irish?

    'Tis a fascinating post and it raises all sorts of questions as you can clearly see.

    I think, though, my life is incomplete as I cannot recall ever having drank Irish whiskey, altho I have had Irish coffee, so that probably counts. 😉

    Love your header photo!
