Inscription.  
This pub has been granted the James Joyce Pub Award for being an authentic Irish pub.
A good puzzle would be to cross Ireland without passing a pub. Ulysses
James Joyce identified and described the characteristic ambience of the Irish pub so successfully that the characters in Ulysses may be fictional, but they were based on a multitude of living beings, characters who Joyce found in pubs just like this one.
This establishment remains an outstanding example of the tradition which Joyce immortalized in his works and is an authentic Irish pub which retains a genuineness of atmosphere, friendliness and presence of good company.
