Fancy A Pint?

Fancy a Pint?

I’m not actually offering to buy anyone a pint. Sorry about that.

I’m away at the moment with himself. The kids have gone off camping with their grandparents so we decided we’d book ourselves into a Dublin hotel for a couple of nights. It’s the first time we’ve actually “stayed” in Dublin, I’ve only ever been for shopping or appointments and believe it or not, this is the first time himself has actually been in the city centre with me.
The last time I was in the city with child #1, we visited the Guinness Storehouse. I love all the history surrounding the brand and could quite happily spend hours mooching around looking at all the old bottles and advertising never mind anything else. So I decided I’d bring himself there to have a look around, what with him being a Guinness drinker and all.
What we didn’t take into account, was the amount of OTHER PEOPLE that would be there on a Saturday afternoon (kind of obvious now though thinking back on it!) it was absolutely MENTAL. We didn’t get as long to look at some of the stuff as we would have liked, and I think we missed some parts altogether so himself did think it was a tad expensive even if you do get a complimentary pint in the Gravity Bar at the end. He did get to drink my pint as well though so that kept him quiet for a bit.
Here’s the “token food shot” taken on the last visit. It’s a burger 😉
I know it doesn’t sound like it, but the Guinness Storehouse really is worth a visit. On a quiet day. Like a Monday…

    You just need to go for a pint in a traditional Dyblin pub such as the Palace, the Long haul, toners etc on grafton street or around avoid all big pubs you’ll love it
