The Irish are usually thought of as doing nothing but sitting in pubs, downing pint after pint. In general, this is true.
A pub is not just a drinking establishment; it is part of the culture. One of the pubs was built right in the former St. Mary’s Church: the bar counter and tables with visitors are located next to the organ, stained glass windows and memorial slabs. The building stood abandoned for a long time, until one entrepreneur bought it and turned it into a popular place for drinking alcohol.
Tipsy people can be met from the very early morning. In Ireland, drinking motorists are treated normally. The permissible amount of alcohol in the blood is 0.8 ppm (equivalent to three glasses of light beer or two glasses of dark, 150 g of vodka or half a liter of red wine).
Celtic folk is pouring from everywhere, chasing beer, guitars are being played on the streets and folk songs are being sung. Irish step dancing takes place in pubs after 10 pm. The dancers do complex steps with their feet, but the body must remain motionless. Aerobatics is a dance with a full glass of beer in your hands. It is believed that if the foamy drink is still spilled, then it’s time for the dancer to retire.
