Thirsty Thursday

Is there anything more satisfying than a well-deserved post-work pint? 

Sometimes a little tipple is just what's needed to unwind after a long day on the grind, and as we're slowly but surely seeing that little stretch in the evening, thoughts of mid-week gatherings and bright beer gardens are begging to creep back into our minds. 

But luckily, we live in a country brimming with cosy little pubs and gorgeous bars just waiting to welcome us after a long, hard day. 

This week, we're heading South to bring you our pick of the best spots in Limerick city. 

House, Limerick. 

Is there anything better than a gorgeous outdoor terrace, gorgeous cocktails and divine interiors.. all under one roof? No, no there is not! The sister to House on Leeson Street, House opened up in Limerick just on the bank of the River Shannon, making for highly picturesque scenes. The food is also delicious, if you're feeling peckish. 

 

Mariposa, the Spanish word for Butterfly.

South’s Pub.

South’s bar is situated just at the edge of Limerick’s Crescent, a uniquely Georgian urban feature, a three-minute stroll from the city centre. A small snug is located to the side of the double swing front doors for those desiring that little bit of privacy or perhaps intimacy, while the rest of the customers sit at either the long bar or along its opposite wall. Get yourself a pint of Guinness, apparently it is the business.

Ladies, listen up!

If ever there was an excuse to catch up with the girls and head out for an few well deserved mid-week cocktails, International Women's Day is it.

To mark the occasion, one Dublin cocktail bar has pledged to give two free drinks to all of its female customers.

Between 5pm and 7pm this evening, NoLIta on South Great George's Street will be providing every woman with two drinks tokens, which can then be used at the bar at any time throughout the night.

A post on the bar's official Facebook page read: “This International Women's Day we want to toast to all the fantastic women in this city. So, we're giving all the ladies out there TWO free drinks in NoLIta this Thursday 8th March.”

“Simply rock up to NoLIta between 5pm-7pm to grab your two drink tokens that you can then claim at the bar any time that night. Who's in?”

Well, we know where we're heading for our after work drinks anyway – it'd be rude not to.
