These Are The Best Irish Pubs To Get Food In According To Michelin
Nothing beats a good feed of pub food, and now the good folk at Michelin have gone to the trouble of rounding up the best Irish pubs in the country as part of their 2016 Eating Out in Pubs guide.
Out of 590 pubs listed Republic, Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales, thirty two Irish pubs in fifteen counties both North and South of the border made the list, which is not too shabby.
Six pubs in Co. Down were listed, followed closely by the rebels in Cork with five, Clare with four, and Kildare with three.
Looks like Ballsbridge is the place to go if you're hungry in the capital, with both the Old Spot and Chop House getting the nod.

The full list, as published on the Irish Times, goes as follows:
