8. If you buy a woman a drink and she refuses, she does not like you.

9. If you buy a woman a drink and she accepts, she still may not like you.

Good advice!

I like the Half Barrel in White Gate, County Clare. Great food, lots of great beer. I drank some Guinness there but I mostly drank Smithwicks, after I discovered a lot of the locals drinking Smithwicks. Guinness brews Smithwicks anyway.

The people were super friendly. It was March, so they had a great turf fire burning every night.

In my experience the number one faux pas that foreigners commit is to assume that the next round is only ordered after everyone has finished drinking the current round.

If you wish to avoid awkward stares, you must order the round immediately everyone's glass is half empty.

There is some sense in this (besides not wasting time between pints).

Guinness takes a long time to settle and by the time its perfect to drink everyone is just about to polished off the dregs of their current pint.
