Yesterday: Bull & Castle, and the Guinness Storehouse
Passed by Dublin Castle along the way
Legends Bar, 16-18 Lord Edward Street, Dublin
Legends has tables where you can pour your own beer
Legends is a very nice bar, although the beer selection is pretty standard.
We did find John at the Bull & Castle at 2:00.
Bull & Castle Pub, 5/7 Lord Edward Street, Dublin
John pointed out some of the better Irish beers that we didn't try yesterday.
Pifko is a Czecho-Slovak bar on Ushers Quay. Along with central European beers, they serve a house Irish Red Ale.
John Duffy and Paris outside Pifko Bar, 41-43 Ushers Quay, Dublin
A short walk back toward Temple Bar led us to the Czech Inn. Along with a range of draft Czech beers that we can't get at home, they feature a very nice Pils called "Murray". I can't find any information on this beer, and John doesn't know where it's brewed.
Czech Inn, Essex Gate, Temple Bar, Dublin
We meant to go to Tram Co next, and we found a cab to take us there, but it was closed. (At 7:00pm. On a Monday night. On a bank holiday.) So we walked a few blocks south on Lower Rathmines Road to Slatterys for some bottled Guinness, and John's wife Dara joined us there. John tried to teach me to order the bottles "off the shelf", but I forgot and so mine were ice-cold.
Our party went our separate ways, and Paris and I walked over to the Luas for the ride back to the hotel. We finished the night with the bottles of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout that we bought at the Storehouse yesterday.
Tomorrow: Messrs Maguire
