Tasty and tempting food
Always leave a period of time before sleep to allow nature to take its course with the inevitable post drink visit to the toilet, and also drink a pint of water before bed to avoid a hangover next morning. I also find that open windows in the bedroom and another pint of water on waking helps with the morning after blues.

I was in England this weekend and drank muck in every pub. Our (craft) beer is excellent IMO especially everything brewed by Black's of Kinsale.

I just was not able for the hangover anymore a couple of yeas ago and put it down to old age(40).I always found I could drink 4-5 pints mid week and it would not knock a sweat off me and come the weekend 4 pints could have me in a coma the morning after .My theory when the bar was busy in the weekend the publicans would fire out the dregs .As far as i know their is 3 grades of kegs ,The hotel grade being the dearest ,the regular kegs and then you have the returns .The returns would be kegs returned to the wholesalers form the likes of festival or bars closed down .These kegs might be out in the sun for a couple of weeks but someone always ends up drinking them so no wonder lads have hangovers after 4 pints

That sounds like total rubbish, I'm sorry. Kegs are all the same, they are delivered and normally put straight into a coldroom.

There is a story going round my place that the Guinness dregs from St James Gate that is meant for pig feed is being re-kegged and sold cheap to the local pubs. These get mixed in with the standard Guinness and then it becomes a lottery if you a being served good Guinness or Guinness that was meant for animal consumption. Anyone reckon there is any truth to it? There is a black market for Kegs as I have seen the white vans dropping them at some of the pubs and there definitely is no consistency, in the standard of Guinness round me. One night it is fine, the next it is bland and tasteless. I have learned the hard way that 3 - 4 pints of this stuff can make you seriously ill.

Yes seriously, there is a black market for kegs, guys going round selling them out of vans to the pubs its become well known in my area, where these kegs are coming from I don't know but the standard is not anywhere near the same. I was drinking in one of the pubs where the Guinness is always good and this discussion came up, one of the regulars there told me that the Guinness lorry driver told him that this pub is the only pub in the locality that gets regular deliveries of Guinness and there is one pub that he hadn't delivered to in about 2 years. We're in a rural area where there are 5 - 6 pubs scattered out over a few miles radius. I would drink in them all on occasion but only have Guinness in one. It is the always the same conversation after a night out - How were the pints?
