Pubs are a tough business. In today’s changing marketplace, getting customers in seats seems to be getting harder every day. Paul Doherty has been able to find a niche for the Blarney’s Stone niche, so they could thrive in the challenging, seasonal resort environment. Of course, the pub also has impressive Guinness sales on St. Patrick’s Day.
