What Is A Shebeen? Okay so I’ve been asked this multiple times over the years. The best way for me to explain it is to show exactly what Wikipedia says: A shebeen (Irish: síbín) was originally an illicit bar or club where excisable alcoholic beverages were sold without a licence. The term has spread far from its origins in Ireland, to Scotland, Canada, the United States, England, Zimbabwe, the English-speaking Caribbean, Namibia, and South Africa.

I always loved the word for some reason and so I decided that I would use it in the name of my blog about Dublin.
