A pint of Ireland's finest stout, Guinness continues to be the most popular drink in Irish pubs.
A study of alcohol consumption in Ireland's bars, clubs and hotels has shown that Guinness remains the most popular tipple in terms of draught beers.
The study undertaken by the Hospitality Ireland magazine found that Guinness proved to be more popular with the Irish ahead of Heineken, Budweiser, Carlsberg and Smithwicks.
Bulmers original cider, which is made in Clonmel, Tipperary, topped the bottled beer lists. While Smirnoff vodka was the most popular spirit, beating Jameson Irish whiskey to the top spot.
“It’s not surprising Guinness tops the list, as it accounts for one in three pints sold in this country,” according to Stephen Wynne-Jones, Deputy editor of Hospitality Ireland.
“This report not only showcases the drinking habits of the Irish consumer but also represents an important tool for the on-trade in terms of which brands to stock in their establishments," he added.
Here were the findings of the research.
