Plot When the Simpsons buy a new hot tub, they forget to go to Grampa's Family Fun day at the retirement castle. They all agree to do something with him, where the easiest thing, and one that Homer would enjoy is to have a beer at O'Flanagan's Pub. The Pub turns out to be in Ireland. <br /><br />The Simpsons fly there to find that O'Flanagan's has gone down the tubes from Ireland sobering up, and people actually caring about their lives instead of wasting them away in a bar. While Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie tour Ireland, Homer and Grampa stay at the bar and get drunk. <br /><br />In their drunkenness, they end up buying the Bar. In order to try and make the bar a success, so Homer and Grampa enlist the help of Moe, they discover that smoking in a bar is Illegal, so they turn the bar into a smoke-easy. They are caught, put on trial and deported back to America and they have to pay a small fine.
