I can truly say that I will never think of lobster rolls in quite the same innocent way again. This was a fine tour of Portland, Maine. Thank you so much.

That's a cool photo! But I guess bartenders are supposed love their job. You sure he might not have had a pint or two before the photo was snapped?

Ottoman - Did you also have the "crisps" that the gentleman is peddling at the bar ? Nothing like a few munchies when quaffing a drink.

Voyager... along with my free pint of Guinness, I enjoyed a delicious Irish Stew. By the time I finished both, I couldn't eat another bite. Travel Luver...I'm thinking at least two pints of Guinness were consumed by the bartender, a man who as Bling mentioned, gives his all to his work and (cough cough) may have to sample an occasional pint or two to make sure the brew meets his high standards.

Seems you have an affinity for not only the Irish people, but also their Guinness? Can that be? You are not a Molson Canadian fan?

That's a cool photo, Ottoman! Reminds me of the bartender at my local pub. His smile is even bigger if you leave him a nice tip.

Great photo! I find that self-guided tours in Dublin tend to end up with a lot of staggering between bars looking for even more 'Craic'!

Try a Guinness the way it is served - don't ask for "Ice Cold" Quote - "We're nothing if not precise; a perfect Guinness should be served at 6-7 degrees centigrade". That's 43'F.

Couldn't agree more! Also try the original Guinness, not the standard draught version. The original version tastes better IMO

I notice the only thing you didn't do in your 24 hours was sleep! I guess that's what the flight home is for. I'm somewhat older and have less energy than you, Seb. One of my favorite things to do in Dublin is to take a walk around St. James Park on a nice day. Or a stroll around Trinity College. But you definitely need to at least try the Guinness in Dublin. Even if you don't like Guinness elsewhere, the Guinness you get here has a better richer taste that stuff we get in North America.

Haha, there was a little bit of sleep between about 4:30am to 9 when I went, though I didn't mention it in the post! Had a nap on the flight home fortunately

Great post and welcome to TG! I spent a few days in Dublin last summer and it's also a good place to catch up on during a long trip. They have cheap internet places open 24 hours a day and good full service Laundromats where you can drop off laundry in the morning and pick up in late afternoon. it's about the same price as a luggage locker so good to use if going on a day trip and headed home

You can get a flight to Dublin from most anywhere in Europe - like here in Liverpool. Early flight to Dublin. Bus into the city. All day walking about. Bus back to Airport. Last flight back to where you're staying. Ryanair. Under $50

Will Americans still drink Guinness when they discover it's not served "Ice Cold" The Irish standard dictates that Guinness should be served at between 38 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit .
