The Irish Pub – Contents

Published by Thames & Hudson, The Irish Pub was one of the best-selling books in Ireland over Christmas 2008. A collaboration between Turtle and the photographer James Fennell, the book examines 39 old-style pubs from the cities of Belfast, Dublin and Galway to the isolated crossroads of rural Ireland. It asks the question, what will be the fate of the Irish pub in the 21st century?

The book featured prominently in a broadcast on BBC World with positive reviews in National Geographic, The Australian, The Guardian, The Irish Times and elsewhere.
