  1. translation: Excuse me good sir, you seem to be interfering with my intended path of travel and would greatly appreciate it if you removed your being from this location.
     
  2. :D
     
  3. Just checked up about the Jazz festival in cork. 23rd to the 26th of october. The city is always jammed full of people for it. I saw some cool bands at it last year. Worth a look if possible.

    I'm not a fan of either to be honest(blasphemy, I know).
    But if you are in Dublin it's gotta be Guinness. It's suppposed to be unrivaled up there.
     
  5. I enjoy both and you being in Cork I was curious if you prefered Beamish.....

    Not a stout man. In fact, I can barely tolerate beer and generally stick to cider.
    A few friends love Beamish and Guiness. They prefer Murphy's though, just being typical Corkmen
     
  7. I like Magners myself....as far as stouts go I'm not fond of Murphy's.

    I'm a Guinness man as far beer goes. I usually start the night off with a double Jameson's on the rocks though. I'm looking forward to trying a Wexford Cream Ale.
     
  9. How old are your kids? The last time we went we took my oldest who was 15 months old at the time. It was an interesting trip.

    It's still called Bulmers here :bassist:
    Do you come to Ireland often...?

    I assume your question about kids was directed at the OP?
     
  11. Yes that's it. I couldn't recall the name. I have been twice since my wife and I married in 2001 and the last time was 2005. I'd love to visit again but now I have 3 little ones so I will have to wait. Yes I was asking the OP about the kids.

    My kids are not really kids anymore. They're 18 and 20. Which reminds me, what's the drinking age in Ireland? Am I going to be pouring their butts into bed every night?

    Quality!
     
  15. Cool ransombass there will be no travel meltdowns then! It was tough to get my son who is now my oldest adjusted. It was pretty funny getting him a passport for the trip.

    Guinness in most of Dublin is muck. You want a good pint, you should go somewhere in the back arse of nowhere, listen for Irish traditional and look around the bar, if the average age of the patrons isn't 60, don't bother ordering a pint!
