Almost the whole time we have been in Ireland, we have not seen any kids. In Ireland, not many kids go to dinner with their parents because they have bad manners. The parents don’t want to get humiliated of their kids’ bad manners.
The other reason is maybe that the recession here is very bad and a lot of people do not go out to dinner very much. I did see some kids on the weekend at the mall in Dublin, but, that was about it.
