It's due to go up by about 20/30c now (10c for the budget and another 10/20c) that Diageo are adding onto the price.

It can be done because duty is paid by the brewery, this is passed on to the consumer in the end.
If a pub already has stock of kegs, there is no reason to charge more.
Any pub that did so immediately after the budget pocketed the extra. The same goes for fuel, when that gets increased and pumps immediately increase the price on fuel they have already paid for, that's profiteering.

Slightly off topic but the reason for that happening is down to microeconomics. They need to raise the price in order to ensure they can afford to pay for the next order of petrol and even out cash flow. Also if the price of crude oil rises the public will have an expectation that future pump prices are going to rise and will decide to fill up. This increases demand, which increases price.

Anyway where from €3 - €4 in Galway.

Might be one or two places selling for more than €4 in town, but I don't know any.

€3.80/90 seems the "standard" price.

€3.60/70 seems to be normal for Athlone.

yep, roll out of there shteemin for less than 25 yoyos. the staff are sound and the pints are lovely and there's always a good fire on but the atmosphere can be a bit of a drag sometimes.

What I cant understand in rural Ireland is the differance in the price of a pint of Guinness Eg some sell it for €3 very few I think ..? but many sell it for €3.50. While a more general price now post budget is €4.00
The vintners association conplain about the number of pubs that will close but in reality its mostly their members that charge the highest prices ?
A pint in Galway city €3.00 while in country pubs in North Galway its €4.00 In the city you have a choice of which pub you go to not so easily done in rural areas where the competitive priced pub could be 10 or more miles away.

The pub where I work is selling Guinness for €3.80 post budget and €3.50 for our regulars. Sucks that we had to put up the price but we couldn't really afford to absorb both that and Diagio's own price increases. We have kept pints of Tuborg at €3.00 though.
