    I'd hope we quiet Americans would also choose to find another place to eat in the area if we're not welcome in that establishment. It works both ways and it'll be his loss.

    LOUD is everywhere.......unfortunate the stereotyping goes along with the territory.

    Like in Mexcio......Puerto Vallarta....30 German guys in shorts, no shirt with boots on marching on the beach screaming ..of course all drunk with beers!

    Like in Italy......Italians coming onto girls and be aggressive. Same for the Greeks!

    Goes on and on.

    One thing I didn't care for in Cork was the Irish "local only" attitude for a bar I wanted to enter. I just left as I saw this attempt in Amsterdam also and reminded me of places I wouldn't enjoy even if I got in.

    I think over time his "too much" will become "too little" and by then most tourists and visitors to the area will have found more hospitable places where they feel more welcome and comfortable. The sooner the better, IMO.

    UPDATE:

    Kerry cafe owner allows Americans in...but says they're quiet now

    He also claims Americans have come in since and told him they'd be quiet.

    Founder of Cill Rialaig artists' retreat Noelle Campbell-Sharpe has opened up a pop-up gallery for the summer where people can purchase a piece for €250 donated by an artist who has used the retreat.

    Only then is the artist's identity and the gallery value of the work revealed.

    A tongue-in-cheek poster proclaims: "Loud Americans welcome - and loud Irish too."

    Oh, did he suddenly notice his twelve empty tables appearing more often due to his sign?

    A bit too late, he got his day of "fame" and now he's left with the bad taste it brought about, although other places nearby will relish the extra patrons.
