McCarthy's Bar Summary


McCarthy's Bar: A Journey of Discovery in Ireland by Pete McCarthy

Pete McCarthy's tale of his hilarious trip around Ireland has gained thousands of fans all over the world. Pete was born in Warrington to an Irish mother and an English father and spent happy summer holidays in Cork. Years later, reflecting on the many places he has visited as a travel broadcaster, Pete admits that he feels more at home in Ireland than anywhere. To find out whether this is due to rose-coloured spectacles or to a deeper tie with the country of his ancestors, Pete sets off on a trip around Ireland and discovers that it has changed in surprising ways. Firstly, obeying the rule 'never pass a pub with your name on it', he encounters McCarthy's bars up and down the land, and meets English hippies, German musicians, married priests and many others. This is a funny, affectionate look at one of the most popular countries in the world.

McCarthy's Bar Reviews


'The funniest book I've read this year' -- John Walsh, Independent 'McCarthy is a hilariously funny writer' -- The Times 'An engaging, evocative book.' -- Daily Mail 'In its freewheeling, informal, jokey way, it is nothing less than a portrait of modern Ireland, in all its splendid contradictions' -- Daily Telegraph 'An acutely observed and often hilarious series of snapshots of a country that can induce an onrush of sentimental cliche' -- Sunday Times
