So, does Guinness really taste better in Ireland?

Reporter Kate Plummer embarked on a journey to Dublin to investigate the claim made by many Irish people. 

The writer visited the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin where an expert explained that the freshness of the ingredients, proper pouring techniques and well-maintained lines contribute to the potential superiority of Guinness in Ireland.

However when the writer finally tried Guinness in Dublin they find it tastes like the Guinness they’ve had in London leaving them a bit underwhelmed. 

But the experience toke an interesting turn when they visited a random pub called Gin Palace. Here they noticed a sweeter taste and lighter texture in the Guinness which they found absolutely delicious.

The writer came to the realization that there might be some truth to the claim that Guinness tastes better in Ireland. 

While their first Guinness in Dublin didn’t live up to expectations they had a transformative experience with a sweeter-tasting pint at a different pub. 

The article suggests that the setting and the ambiance might play a role in enhancing the Guinness-drinking experience making it better in Ireland for some individuals.

Our members had no doubt about their answers, they definitely believe that Guinness taste better in Ireland.

Irish Food You Will Love

Irish Shepherd’s Pie (the real one, not the stuff they eat in cottages)

Irish Shepherd’s Pie

Irish Shepherd’s Pie (the real one, not the stuff they eat in cottages) is a dish consisting of two mandatory ingredients: potatoes and lamb. The ground beef version is also very delicious, but does not qualify as “Shepherd’s Pie” since shepherds raise sheep, not cows. The mystery remains as to why the beef version is referred to as “Cottage Pie,” rather than “Cowboy Pie” or “Rancher’s Pie.”


The Craic – Irish Accent vs Scottish Accent

Scottish accent vs Irish accent (This is so funny)

Scottish accent vs Irish accent is a popular joke among people of both nations. It has been the subject of plenty of humor with the two accents being so distinct from one another. The Scottish accent is known for its broad, deep tones whereas the Irish accent is much more lilting and light. Many people find it fun to compare and contrast the two accents as they are so drastically different.

The Scottish accent is often seen as being more rough and gruff while the Irish accent is soft and peaceful. No matter what end of the spectrum you may find yourself on, it’s safe to say that these two accents never fail to bring a smile to one’s face! So why not compare them yourself and have a good laugh?
