12 Pubs of Christmas (baker’s dozen)

The pubs are listed in the order I visited them.  Couldn’t visit all in one night as tradition dictates but averaged two each day.  No words are needed when photos (or video) best describe a place. If you find yourself in Dublin, try walking into a pub you’ve never heard of.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised by most pubs in that each is unique in its own way. The best pubs are often the ones not publicized and remain a locals-only (/mostly) venue.
