Anyone want to meet for a beer over the weekend 5/6/7th November (next weekend)

I'll be working in Dublin from Thursday 4th to Tuesday 9th and staying in Merrion Square. I'll be working lateish Thursday and Friday but the office is only 10 minute walk from Grafton Street. A colleague and I will be available for drinking duties :D

Top stuff.. would love to meet ya for a beer if you're about :D I'm waiting for Lou and Fabio to see this thread at the moment :D:D

Pat - Lower Baggot street is just round the corner from our hotel :D I know it well, I can't remeber the name of it but there's one pub that is pretty cool. It goes back a long wayfrom the street entrance and opens right out. Massive pub :D

I'll be working saturday, but hopefully only for the morning ;)

o'donahues - great place. spent a long sunday evening in there being best mates with a drunk scotsman in rigger boots, kilt & john dere cap :D

there was a restaurant down there, dont know if its still there, but the tablecloths were paper & you got a jar of crayons on your table to draw with, all the best pictures were on the walls. great place & great food as i remember. last time i was in dublin was with work & we were staying in that big posh hotel on st stephens - the one with all the wrought iron front

Ah I know the one, can't remember the name... but that was the first one we stayed in. The next one we stayed was over the other side of the green, tiny little hotel, but did the best cooked brekky in the mornings.

All the other times we've spent in the Davenport, mainly because we like it and the staff know us.

And most of New York too..........;)

Shelbourne is quite posh, part of Le Meridian chain at the mo I believe, though it was downgraded to 4 starts lately, big hullabaloo, as its a Dublin institution........
