The Benedictine and McEwans mix alone would have been enough to induce psychedelic yodelling  :D

ok well last week i spent a few nights in belfast
it was my first trip to northern ireland ,
these are my thoughts
the price of a pint was too much for a start but anyway
john hewitt was a good pub
so was duke of york with copper topped tables and whiskey mirrors
never went in whites tavern
i liked kellys cellar , good guinness , several drunk locals in there which is a good sign
in one end of the bar was a few men with guitars singing out loud
then when they stopped a young group of kids about 20 came in sat down , got instruments out then a few minutes later they  started playing traditional irish music
unlike the night before in fibber magees when 3 blokes spent over and hour tuning up and testing microphones  and still didnt play a song so we got fed up and left
prefering the front room in robinsons (same building)
next night we walked in the crown , it was dark , stood at bar a few minutes before we changed our mind and walked out
went to bar next to it on the other corner , think it was brennans
had a nice pint in there watched the football
 pub to avoid was northern wig
best pub we found was the kitchen bar
good food , good crack , good pint  , friendly bar staff ,
what more could you want

Conman for someone who is visiting Northern Ireland for the first time you sure have put a lot of posts on to this forum. You wouldn't have a vested interest in the Kitchen bar per chance?

Called in to Hewitts yesterday for a pint and walked back out again, they dont sell Smithwicks or Bass just your usual Harp or Guinness and the rest of the drought beers were all 'foreign yuppie' rubbish, not a bar for me.

Called into Kellys Cellers yesterday and had a pint and a bowl of beef stew, both hit the mark, lovely. I was sitting finishing my pint and couldn't help noticing a Cuban flag taking pride of place above the bar, and wondered what is a Cuban flag doing in an Irish bar? What did Cuba or for that matter the Cuban people ever do for Ireland? Is there someone in the bar trying to make some sort of statement? Political statement? .In the words of that great Irish wit Oscar Wilde in his deathbed "Either those curtains go or I do"
