...is frigging dangerous. Currently in the Etihad lounge at 07:45. Didn't actually get to bed last night. Hoping the eggs benedict and coffee are going to sober me up.

And there is some wonderful Irishness here:

Irish Couple sitting at the table next to me, talking to an old Irish guy at the table next to them: "And there are a lot of superstitions." "What sort? Like silly superstitions?" Oh no, ******* rational ones.

Cash machine pre-sets: €20, €40, €90, €140. WTF? So I select €90. Machine thinks about it for a while, then informs me, "Your selected amount cannot be dispensed. Please choose another amount." Was tempted to go for €73 just to see.

Taxi driver was from Dalian, China. Just as well there's full employment here...

if you are still in dublin go find a pub called the blue light (no its not a gay pub)its up the mountains close to sandyford. so give the oirish one a miss (johnny foxes) and find this one.
for directions find a place called lamb doyles bar, very well known and its another 2 km up into the hills.

well worth a look

Cheers, will have to be next time.

Bloody good food we had, along with the Guinness:
Black and white pudding, thick tasty bacon, juicy sausages and soft, creamy scrambled egg for brekky (at the Westin).
Eden smokies (rich and creamy), succulent salmon with interesting veg at the Eden Restaurant.
Good honest simple grub at Johnny Fox's, along with an entertaining band and great dancers (ok, probably at bit touristy, but the place was packed and everyone had a great time).
Gravalax-y smoked salmon with sesame puree and very juicy venison at Bang Restaurant. Cheese plate was a bit mean and they ran out of port after 4 glasses. Bit nouvelle cuisiney but good nonetheless.
Excellent service everywhere, and although the pubs were full it was all very convivial.

Need a week to sober up.

Stoop Your Head in Swords is another one with great sea food. Marco Pierre White's on Dawson street for steaks.
