There's a New Bar in Town

Irish bars abroad are, generally, to be avoided, unless you want to watch a hurling or rugby match or pine for a pint of guinness, which never really tastes the same outside of Ireland! Full of clichéd memorabilia , shamrocks and guinness signs, they usually lack the most essential ingredient, ie Irish people who make the other essential ingredient ; the craic!
So , it is with bated breath that we await the opening of O'Flahertys Pub in Perpignan , 27 ave General LECLERC ( Parallel to Bd Clemenceau). The guy who is taking it over has gone to Ireland to soak up the culture and to learn how to properly pull a pint of guinness. It promises to be a real Irish pub with a real Irish ambience, so I guess that means that we'll have to get our asses down there lively!
Opening on the 17 February, we wish them the best of luck .
Go n'éirí an t-ádh libh lads ( that's Good Luck in Irish!) Looking forward to a creamy one!


  1. There was an Irish bar in the town near which i lived in Rrance...the high spot of the week was setting fire to the bar counter on Friday nights...
    I never worked out whether this was a publicity stunt on the part of the management, or the response of the customers to the ambience.

  2. Let's hope it's not 6 euros a pint!

  3. mmmm sounds like we need to give it a go. Seen as I'm irish now n all - lol

  4. That sounds gond,i wonder will they have Sky Sports for the Rugby matches? Your Dad should have gone over to show them how to pull the perfect pint of "GUINNESS" X GAB.X

  5. @Rachel : well there is a bit of irish in you, isn't there?
    @Betty : Yes indeedy Betty. trying to convince him to come over to see us!
