Ireland

There has been a lot of discussion regarding the smoking ban in Ireland, and its affect on the tourism industry.

My wife and I did not have a single drink in any pub in Dublin’s famed Temple Bar district, simply because we could not find one that had breathable air. We didn’t fare much better in Glenn Colm Cille, though we lasted about a half a few nights at Biddy’s (pic at right). Unfortunately the stench of cigarette smoke on our clothes lingered for the walk back the our rooms. As enjoyable as our trip was, it would have been infinitely more enjoyable had we been able to find a smoke-free pub.
