Serving Your Own Guinness



In case you haven’t guessed it by reading my posts on our trip to Ireland, the Emerald Isle can be a quirky place which you need a sense of humor to enjoy. Today’s example: we were a group of six adults and seven children (three to thirteen) looking for a decent, affordable, family-friendly restaurant in Galway city on a busy Friday night. The pizzeria Fat Freddy’s was recommended and appeared to meet all criteria although tragedy almost struck when the menfolk of the group heard that there was no beer on tap in the restaurant. Our excellent – and incredibly patient – server calmly explained that if so desired, beer could be ordered from The Quays bar next door and brought in i.e. “if you want a pint, go get it yourself”. As you can see above, my husband found this arrangement particularly agreeable :)

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    What a great find! Can’t imagine traveling with such a large group and finding a place to please everyone. That’s what I call keeping your “spirits” high.
