I'm a fan. Now I need about $2,000 to get there and back.

If I were a rich man I'd bring a crew and make it rain. Good jerb, kids.

Very nice. Some nice touches in there like the vinegar bottle on the table. Just needs some bar towels.

I want to go back.

I spent 4 nights in Limerick and 2 in Dublin before heading off to Scotland and England.

Such a beautiful country.

We got a "4 days 4 nights $400" special** to Ireland several years ago now. It was only Dublin, the average high temp was 33.1F***, it rained all the time, but we had a great time.

**long time ago. off-season. The price included air fare and hotel.
***Average low temp? 32.9F

"My husband and I have had a very busy few weeks working on our favourite project to date," she wrote alongside the pictures.
"'The Drunken Crab' built, painted and interior designed for the Crabtree family who are loving having their own pub in the Garden."

That's a new one, TFA didn't RTFA.  Meta.

I wish more families could afford to do undertake such projects. On the surface, it's frivolous. However, the creative energy expended on this little pub was probably far more effective at dissipating anxiety, stress, and worry than any prescription psychotropic could ever be.

This.  My budget extends to buying a six pack of Guinness, and pouring it into a fancy pint glass shaped pint glass.  Ooh, how authentic!

Either that dart board is too high or everything else is built for leprechauns...

Very cool though

Isn't every pub in Ireland an "Authentic Irish Pub?"

Combustion: Isn't every pub in Ireland an "Authentic Irish Pub?"


It's not in Ireland, it's in Wigan, England, outside of Manchester.  The couple who built this shed for their customers is "Irish" in the sense that they have an Irish-ey surname.  I don't know the origin of the people who actually own the shed, "Crabtree" doesn't sound particularly Gaelic though.

That article is utter garbage of course, but the shed came out great.  We've been having some major shed-envy this summer and this isn't helping.

Pretty much every surrounding area has invaded Ireland at one time or another and left behind some stragglers, doesn't mean they aren't Irish.  Even the Celts displaced the original hunter gatherers.

Ahhh, the article just said "Wiggan" and I just breezed through gawking at the pics.

But yes, what a neat freaking idea. I wish I were creative. Or I wish someone I know was, so I could go to their place. Hell I'd even get to know some neighbors if they had something like this.
