This weekend I got my face printed on a Guinness and I feel like my life just got that bit better 🍻🤩☘️☘️☘️_____________________________________________________________
Guinness has always been a strong favourite of mine. The drink you drink when you have the mid-booze munchies and need to reset. The drink you drink at a rugby match, at 11am, at 5pm, at 4am - ya know, that kind of time... _____________________________________________________________
The Guinness storehouse could have been too big and too touristy (and maybe it was a little touristy) but being a tourist it was truly excellent touristing. The gimmicks were entertaining for beer fans and beer novices a like. ☘️The self promo ‘ history of advertising’ section was goofy and fun enough for my cynical side to be kept at bay. The only regret I have is to have not done the full shebang with the full tour - but then what would be my excuse to go back? 😏 My first trip to Ireland will always be about this peaty liquorice coloured drink of champions. 10/10 Dublin. Bravo.
Ahhh the sweet taste of Guinness in Ireland 🇮🇪(Swipe to see @bobsaget And my face on a pint of Guinness! 🍺😂) This has been my favorite beer FOREVER- actually helped me gain the “Freshman 5” in college 😂. We went to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin yesterday and it was incredible! Did you know that Guinness was founded in 1759 and the Guinness family has helped Dublin during so many times of difficulty. Including helping to rebuild St. Patrick’s cathedral?!
Have you ever been to Dublin? Or done the Guinness tour? Let me know below! Would love to know what you thought. And SAVE this post if you’re planning to go to Dublin in the future. Slàinte! 🍻

It’s only Wednesday but it has been A WEEK. Who else would rather be drinking Guinness with this view? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️
Yummy SUNDAY Guinness Beer Beef Chuck Roast! 🥕🍺 Bake for 3 hours or until tender. Or, simmer on stove until meat is tender. For crockpot, cook on high for 3-4 hours. You can substitute the beer with beef broth or non-alcoholic beer. Or, cook for 6 hours on LOW in the crock pot! "It was wonderful! The whole family loved it. I strained the juices and reduced them and poured them back over the pot roast and served with mashed potatoes. —a reader

Ryan’s Parkgate St 8/10
Another one of the 16 remaining Victorian pubs in Dublin, Ryan’s on Parkgate Street is certainly easy on the eye. Refurbished after a fire about 10 years ago, the interior must challenge for the best in the city. The fabulous ornate bar is joined by tributes to original form, including gas lamps, whiskey barrels and tea drawers. Completing the setting is Ireland’s oldest (indoor) two faced clock in Ireland, which sits over the bar and, while some of Dublin’s pubs operate without a snug, Ryan’s still has two.
Having teamed up with FX Buckley, the food menu matches the elegance of the interior and, coupled with an extensive seafood range, offers great food in a traditional setting. Bright during the summer and warm during the winter, a visit is highly recommended.
The risk with a bar putting so much emphasis on style may be that substance is left behind. Not so the case here, with Ryan’s not losing sight of what truly matters – its pint of stout. Full of the right flavour and consistency, one of those pints that begged you to order another. It may have been served a touch cold; however, that was a minor complaint for a great pint.
