    What am I looking at here? The slightly overpriced luxury items? The reasonably priced alcoholic luxury item? Or the fact that there’s no substantial meal?

    7 euro for a bottle of Heineken in Dame Street last Wednesday afternoon (not for me, I was in a round).
    And clean your nails Terry.

        My little lad is mad into Bram Stoker ( I know, we sleep with one eye open!) so we did a little pilgrimage before he had to go back to school-
        Marino Crescent where he lived, Ballybough opposite the Clonliffe House where they buried the suicides, Kildare Street for his plaque and Dublin Castle where he worked.
        Stopped for a quick drink in Dame st where the 7 euro mugging occurred.

            absolutely, there’s a deadly little veg shop too, proper butchers, the fish shop, great location

    how much should a cordial cost. if a moderately attractive woman asks for a cordial, its free. if ordering a cordial in a round with a separate guinnesses its usually free. if a bloke goes to counter and orders a pint cordial on its own, is it still about a euro?

      in my experience if you reach for your pocket they’ll charge a nominal euro. i have never paid for it, i’ll just give the barman a quick ‘thanks a mill’ and walk off. the only time i was ever asked for a euro for a blackcurrant was in the mercantile where the barman got a bemused look and a laugh and i just took the glass and walked away with it.

      Did you notice they have recently dropped the serving temperature of Heineken, it corresponds with a decrease in the quality of the good they are using, cold tongues taste less and can’t notice the difference and drop in quality, sneeeky, so there you go now :)

        I haven’t noticed, but wouldn’t doubt you.

        I probably wouldn’t notice anyway – 9 times out of 10 I only really want something cold, bubbly and unchallenging anyhow

          if you every feel like something new the Kinnegar range from Donegal is fabulous and you get to support Irish made, imo the most pleasant Irish beers on the market

    No food on that bill. Maybe a visit from the covid police is in order, along with some cordial advice?

    I didn’t sell coffee at my bar to dissuade a certain kind of customer, who thought 1.50 would buy you the right to stand at the bar for two hours and harrasse every female in the gaff including myself, same reason I changed 3.50 for a cordial … desperate eh ?
    So I’m not that upset about this

    I was in a golf club in Donegal recently. They allowed us to pint away no problem outside. They said we couldn’t drink inside without eating. I know that is the case in Northern Ireland – maybe they were playing fast and loose on the Ulster card

    Ah now- does common sense not pop it’s head up at any time? Pubs + food = no virus BUT Pubs – food = virus. England has had pubs open for 6-8 weeks and no issue.

    And then we wonder we are called the ‘thick paddys’– > IT’S OVER- get your friggen act together.
