Matters regarding Limerick, Limerick pubs, Limerick hills, plenty culture please

Its a bit limited but it was smashing.

I eat there once a week and yes it is expensive but it’s absolutely unreal and you’d be very full after it. The menu is small but I guess that’s why the dishes they do are quality. A difficult balance to get right.


#1751

I never said it was expensive, in fact it’s fairly reasonably priced. There was only about five choices for mains today, one being ‘Chicken Curry’ . Every time I’ve been there in the last year the menu has been the same.


#1752

I think it’s fairly expensive compared to the spots like it around but don’t mind paying for the quality. The muscles and garlic bred are unreal.


#1753

Christ almighty you’re seething like I’ve never seen before, absolutely car crash stuff :grinning:
Take it easy, this level of anger is dangerous at your age.

Have you convened a family meeting yet on the situation?


#1754

I’ve been there twice myself in the last year. The food was nice to be fair. I think the pub section is an awful soulless spot to have a few drinks in though. I’d eat there only.


#1755

Uncle Toms is less than two miles from Boher and in total would put you 5 minutes longer on your journey.
Call in there for your pint.


#1756

Agreed. Or the Tower in Ballybrood. Which of the two do you think is better? I have a soft spot for the Tower myself of the two, though Uncle Tom’s is nice too.


#1757

More likely to find uncle toms open.


#1758

Lovely pub, especially of a cold evening. Grand and warm and cosy. Flaking pint too. A half dozen would disappear there very quickly.


#1759

Avoid the 45 game of 9 hands though. The sharks in that have been playing for 40-50 years and would eat you alive


#1760

Seems to be a lot of May Eve bonfires across the city tonight. Busier night than halloween for the fire and rescue services these days arguably.

There was 2 or 3 over in St Marys park earlier when I was passing by Grove Island.


#1761

It’s always been a big thing in the city. We always lit one…You’d be building it for days. Was never as big as ones down the island or garryowen though

I thought it was may 1st in the past


#1762

Always the 30th April mate, Its a tradition that goes back generations in the City alright…pity a few scumbags generally end up attacking the fire brigade etc.


#1763

That should carry a massive sentence .


#1764

Fully agree, unfortunately it seems like young lads get away with it, as it happens every year.


#1765

Is it an English or a Celtic tradition? They do the May bough around here but not the bonfires


#1766

Irish celtic tradition pal.


#1767

Celtic so. I see it’s done in Devon/Cornwall etc alright


#1768

There was big one in by Carew Park around 6pm, bit of a stupid time to be lighting a bonfire @Robert_Emmet
