Drinking With The Dead…

Good spot for a beer at the weekend might be the new John M Keating pub on Jervis Street. Would put up photos I took but I’m damned if I can get the photo uplink thingy to work luddite that I am… Actually now that I look it’s told me the photo I want to upload is too large… Arse.

Have a couple up on mine from a while back HERE

Was there for a coffee a couple of weeks ago and it’s just stunning inside; a church organ at one end, a huge stained glass window at the other. All state of the art and yet with the elements of the St Mary’s Church that it used to be quite tastefully retained. It’s a bar/restaurant/cafe so something for everyone depending on the time of day.

Can only speak for the cappucino (pretty decent) but it definitely looks like a worthwhile spot to try in an otherwise pretty quiet part of town nightlife-wise…

Top gig of the weekend should be The Marshals in Whelan’s on Saturday night. Had them in on the radio show on Wednesday and they do a mean acoustic Folsom Prison Blues…

    Hey Rick,

    Yeah, have heard some great words about this place, must go check it out soon given it’s only over the road from me here in Temple Bar. Whilst down that area looking for a nice coffee spot, don’t forget about Lotts on Liffey Street (especially for Sunday Jazz!!)

    I second this about Keatings, it’s one of the wierdist places but quite beautiful An old chruch, turned into a bar with great taste. Sean O’Casey was christened here and Auther Guinness got married there too.

    I supped my pint and looked at the 10 commandments posted in wood, and thought it’s a different kind of spirituality I am supping here and wondered what the hell (excuse me for cursin’, Reverend Sir) the original patrons would have thought, but I bet O’Casey would have loved it!
