This popular movement seems based on no one person thinking at all. You also seem overruled by those who find it distasteful. A popular movement is carried by popular opinion and the consensus is that what you're posting is crap.
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll be coming back to Ireland so I will be making use of them.
I do love the outdoors, music, meat and potatoes. I'll be drinking whiskey instead of beer though but I'm willing to try guinness.
I've found a nice service that offers a busride out to cliffs of moher. It makes stops along the way which means I'll be seeing a fair bit of the countryside. That and some less touristy pubs.
