Hi there, not been on the site for quite a while and thought I would have a quick look and found your post. Me and my husband and 2 kids moved to Dunedin last August and I have found it hard to meet people outside work which makes it hard to settle. I am orginally from Ireland but lived in Manchester for 11 years before coming to Dunedin for work. So if you are still looking for some more mates give us a shout we would love to here from ya

Hi all,
Been in Dunedin since Feb 2007 and lovin' it.
This is a great little town if you don't mention the Two murders, the many bank robberies and the earthquakes (enjoyed them really!!)
Murphy's bar on High Street does the best pint of Guinness in New Zealand and i have tried a lot of them

Yip been in Murphy's Bar on High Street a few times dont know about the black stuff but the vodka and the craic aren't too bad. It a lot better since its been done up. Have you been to the Bog Pub on George Street? Haven't tried it yet but believe its a mad night out as well

No, haven't been to the Bog yet in Dunedin but have been to the one in Christchurch and wasn't impressed. it's a franchise for the wannabes.
Plus it is too far to walk from Murphy's.

yip had a few of those nights here as well!!! although drinking some of the local stuff has the same effect, especially after about 4 bottles of Pinot Noir which I have found to be lethal. Total memory loss. Not recommended
