The Irish Pub concept has gone global, thanks to the Irish Pub Company, which helps people build authentic Irish Pubs around the world.  Despite the global boom, pubs are closing at a rapid rate in Ireland.  Sales ofGuinness, the iconic Irish stout, have dropped significantly in Ireland in the last seven years.  Instead, it's gaining popularity elsewhere. In fact, Nigeria now sells more Guinness than Ireland!
