    Well said, just remember Dublin has some of the slowest Guiness in the world. In one pub I ordered a Guiness & a cheese and ham toastie. Guess which arrived first?

    I have some Dubliners coming over to me next week - mother in law, sister in law and niece (they hunt in packs)

    May get them to do the jobs tech_guy has listed.

    Stuff the Guinness, get yourself round to Porterhouse in the Temple Bar area and sample their stuff, far superior to the mass produced black stuff

    You need one more item to make 6, and then roll a die.

    Bother, I completely missed the Porterhouse.

    If you fancy a bit of a walk Anso on south Camden street is cool.

    Options 1, 2 and 3 will be problematic, 4 and 5 sound much better !!

    The order should be 4,5 repeated enough times so the 1 and 2 are completed with a pebble dash effect.
    That just leaves 3, which as long as it's not attached to the house can be solved with petrol and a match, leaving more time for 4 & 5....

    Do it in that order. The Guinness there is superb and will only highlight the difference in the taste of the stuff that's travelled to England!!!!

    I have had some of the porterhouse stuff in a bar in london.....name escapes me.....when I was down at Bett this year, Porterhouse red, that was stunning. @bandgeekmafia78 made me try a pint of Oyster as well...that was truly vile stuff.
