Things I Learned in Kilkenny

Just a quickie post as we pop into the hostel en route to the Guinness Factory. More tomorrow!

1. It is a rookie mistake to grab for your Guinness before the bartender has topped it off. I was judged.

2. Apparently in order to imitate an American accent one only needs to start each phrase with “Oh my gawd, like…”

3. Guinness is NOT a beer…it is a “stout.” *Get it right.*

4. Wood is different from women because wood will sit there and hold your beer. *long story*

5. All Irish students learn Gaelic in school, but only 2% use it in general population. You don’t use it….you lose it!

6. The more Irishmen drink…the more I feel like I’m in the movie Snatch.

7. Irishmen are suspicious of anyone that would leave “sunny California” for “fekkin’ Ireland in March!”

  1. ahhh, St. James Gate!! Visiting the Guinness factory was the highlight of my European trip 🙂 Miss you already!!! Safe travels!

  2. I burst out laughing when I read your comment about the movie “snatch.” I seriously couldn’t sit through it! Chris kept laughing and I would add a few fake chuckles but in my head, I had NO IDEA what anyone was saying! I hope you’re having a great time! I miss you!
