Is nothing sacred? Next they stop playing Joan Baez' songs.

And just before dying of the  cold you can have a last pint in the  nearby Gravedigger's bar next door to Glasnevin Cemetary.
It's a 5-minute walk from Doyle's corner. Maybe best to order a hearse.

I've never been to this place, but I have had a few interesting takeaway and indoor boozing experiences in 'The Bald Eagle' and 'The Bernard Shaw'! hahah

Also interesting,
Coincidentally, I have a copy signed by the author, and the pint-pulling owner Ger Cusack and two of the oldest surviving permanent inhabitants (*) of the establishment. Probably a collector's item in a few years time.
One of Julie Garland's haunts .. she used to play poker in the back room after her shows,

(*) There's a Texan buried in the bar's clock.

Interesting!  My neighbor is a barman at Mulligan's! He's set to retire, but apparently has been pulling pints in Dubs since 1973.   There's a distinct possibility, that he's given you a pint or two as he's moved between a number of pubs.

On a side note:  there's a view among Dubs & Culchies that Mulligan's pulls the best Guinness.  Others believe it's Kehoes.  I'm fairly agnostic, both are good and definitely better than the Guinness Storehouse! haha
