    Don’t know if they were the right ones but hit 7 different pubs in 3 days.

    Also folks, spoke too soon. In Belfast, Northern Ireland. I liked Belfast more. Love Ireland and Irish culture.

    Jameson's is a reasonable alternative

    If you're expensing it try the Midletons Very Rare.

    I'm you're wife. I've been secretly using TGG to make sure you weren't planning a life without me.

    We need to talk. I'll be in the kitchen.

    I know right :)
    Sorry missed this donkey. I got a bottle of Jameson to bring over to USA but this one I didn’t pick up. Heading to Greece in 4 hours. I will grab a bottle at the airport if I can find.

    Thanks D. If not crazy expensive I will grab this one as well.
    Thanks for last night honey. :D:p
    Stop pulling my leg :mad::mad::mad:

    The rest of Ireland considers Dublin an absolute shithole
    This is always, always the correct answer. Cork is the place to visit (I am biased here). You will do well to do it in under 2 hours from Dublin though

    Well you Irish have high standards I guess. I am told Irish county-side is the real Irish beauty. But Dublin was also pretty awesome for us as a family. Great restaurants and pubs. I gotta ask, why are Irish people so friendly and nice? I am used to asshole behavior in USA. This was a fresh air really. Only thing I didn’t like was the weather. It was always under 65 degrees and since I only brought shorts and shirts my ass froze over under the wind. Cheers my friend. You have a great great country.

    I guess it goes back to a time when this was a country of small farm plots and everyone working the land. You helped your neighbours and then your neighbours helped you. That was bread into the culture here, so my grandparents came from a time when if you had extra food this week you gave it to your neighbours because you knew if they have extra food next week they will give it to you. So my parents were brought up in that be nice and others will be nice to you environment and passed it onto me and my generation. But as the cities grow and the world changes you can see it changing, I live rurally and have lived in my current location for 5 years now and barely know my neighbours tbh, so I'd imagine in next 20 years or so we will be a bunch of cranks like the rest of the world

    And that was summer, when the UK next door was in the middle of a heat wave and drought. Wait until winter. It won't snow but the rain will get heavier and colder. And if you think you'll have enough cash after the divorce for a McDonalds let alone to fund a move to Ireland you may be being a trifle optimistic.

    This is Winterfell from Game of Thrones. It was a mother fucker to get this picture without people in it. Loads of tour buses and hundreds of people walking around.
