One of the barmen, Ronan, was off one of the days. So I picked up the phone at reception to ‘Hey it’s Ronan’. I said “WHATSSS THE STOORRYY BRO”. Then he said ‘can I book a table for tonight?’ It wasn’t my workmate, it was actually a customer.
What is your favourite restaurant in Dublin City?
There are so many options that I can’t think of a favourite, it usually depends on what I’m in the mood for.
