The Guardian name the 20 best pubs in Ireland to have a pint

You may have had a drink in some of these places.

With the St Patrick's weekend upon us, every single Irish person around the globe is prepared to do the exact same thing, nothing.

Ok, you might head to the pub to watch the rugby, or to Croke Park for the AIB club finals, but we're fairly certain that you'll all be sitting on your arse and loving the fact that you're Irish. There's no need to head to the parade.

Just stay at home with a few cans and a Shamrock Shake from McDonald's. Be grand.

If all else fails, head to the local and on that note, your nearest pub could be about to get busier, especially if it's on the recent list that's published by The Guardian.

Anyways, on this weekend where the world celebrates all things Irish, our interest was piqued by their recent list of the 20 best pubs in Ireland.

Of course, there have been countless awards and ceremonies to crown - take a look at exhibits A, B, and C here - but given the worldwide appeal of The Guardian, we were curious to see what pubs made the grade.

Here, what can we say, we're nosy!
