Alright there lads
Can't agree more by the way on your hostelry of choice
Has everything for the perfect place to enjoy a pint
Not fond of the black stuff myself but I can recommend the heineken
Another pub worth a try is the Homestead (or Kiernan's) - it's up past the Statoil if you go from our place and cross over the new cabra road, beside the bingo hall.
Smyths also gets my vote! Still haven't found a better local.
Don't drink Guinness but if you feel like going a bit further afield, The Porter House in Phibsborro is a really nice spot. It is walking distance but it depends how much you enjoy walking! Nice surroundings, nice atmosphere and as well as brewing their own beers, they also stock many from other countries. I'm quite partial to their cherry beer, Kreik Boon, but it's not for everyone I'm sure.
