Pub owners in Doonbeg have clarified that Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump, in fact, did pay their hefty bar tab, after media reports circulated that the pair skipped out on the bill.
"We have just had the most fantastic week in Doonbeg with the visit of the Trump family," the owners of Igoe Inn Bar & Restaurant posted on the pub’s Facebook page Saturday. "I would like to clarify that The Igoe Inn was paid in full for the round of drinks that Eric & Don bought for our customers. We appreciate their business."
The owner added: "We Do Not appreciate being misquoted."
Last week, the president’s sons enjoyed a bar crawl in Doonbeg, which is home to Trump International Golf Links & Hotel. The brothers reportedly offered free rounds for a house full of patrons. Shortly afterwards, news media began reporting that the hefty tab was never paid.
"We'll get the money later we were told there'd be no fear of it," bar owner Caroline Kennedy told The Irish Mirror. "I don't think we've to worry about getting paid for that. I don't think they carry cash. We were told it'd be all sorted later so there's no problem."
Newsweek reports that the tab was forwarded to the Trump golf resort, which paid it in full.
