Because it sounds like it doesn't exist?

Greetings Boardsies,

Is there any such thing as a pub that's basically a library? No noisy TV, implausibly massive audio system, 100^16" TV screen (see what I did there?), plenty books, and an affordable pint? And there'd be the odd night in the week when they'd play prog rock. The kind of pub you'd find riddled with civil servants on the prowl for like minded civil servants/people.

Any such thing? Do I have to open the place for myself? Or would it simply be quicker to pop a few sleeping pills and dream of it?


Howyra yeah no bother, just find a late night library, sure there is one somewhere, might be a french one, sneak in a bottle of wine or a shoulder, bring a stereo to blast a bit of explosions in the sky, while reading The Complete Works of Chaucer... in Latin.

Where are you looking?
I know a handful of places like this down in Cork, and I love them to bits.

Tellies and painfully loud music =/= atmosphere, no matter what some Irish will tell you.
That's just an excuse for them not having to talk to people.

It's the requirement to meet like minded civil servants I find most odd here.

There's a brilliant little pub on George's Quay in town called Kennedy's. No tv, kinda retro looking in a 'hasn't actually been redecorated in 50 years way', barman has great taste in music and doesn't play any of it too loud, nice mix of people, from auld fellas to IFSC heads to college students. And they do a great pint. It's a gem of a pub.

Kennedys is great. There is a tv though (they were showing one of the football matches recently) but it's not on/hidden at night.

Used to be a haven of underage drinking in my younger days of trekking to the capital in search of pubs that would serve us. That whole area was in fact: Liffey Bar (now The Pint), The White Horse (now The Dark Horse).

I'm pretty certain I know this place. "Drink is cheap" is a slight exaggeration though. I'd say it's normally priced, €4.60 for a Guinness.

Aye, I've been to the Pint of Eden Quay a few times. Handily close to the luas stop. My friends are in bands that play there.

Now that the thread is well established, is it safe to tell ye that I don't drink on the grounds of a medical condition?

I know a place like this too in the city centre. Lovely comfortable leather sofa's, nice carpet, its like having a drink in your living room. No blaring music so you can have good banter, and excellant toilet facilities, no having to wade through pools of diarrhea and vomit to get to the urinal.

The place should be packed every night but never is, there's usually only about 7 or 8 other people in the place, its like having my own private bar in the city centre.

There was a place like this in Cork. Unfortunately it was so good everyone told their friends now the place is packed pretty much every night.

Boring quiet people shouldn't go out. It kind of defeats the purpose of going out. You know to have a good time, get a little wasted and lively.

My best bet for you is to start drinking at your book club (which I presume you're already in)
