Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub Restaurant Review: There's plenty to like at this spirited, transplanted bit of olde Ireland. The pub’s entire interior, including the unfinished-wood floors and lots of stained glass, was built back in the old country and imported to its prime base-of-the-mountain location. Twenty-five “slow-pour” draught taps of Guinness and other ales and beers, tots of Irish whiskey and finely prepared pub fare, plus lively Irish tunes, await après-skiers each evening. The patio is smack at the bottom of the slopes so skiers can unsnap their gear and unwind in minutes. Pop in for a breakfast of Irish scramble or corned beef hash to sustain you for the slopes. Later, generous portions of Guinness and crab bisque, a gatekeeper burger complete with Dubliner cheese, “fat of the land” Irish stew, and ale-battered cod-and-chips are all sure to hit the spot. It's hard to get away from good-for-you Guinness when it makes its way into a chocolate Guinness cake, but the Baileys crème brûlée gives some good competition. Cheerful servers are happy to share the lowdown on any dish.
