Trip Report The Glory Hole, Belfast

Jump to last reply

I have already been in Ireland several hours and I find myself a bit disappointed that I have not executed one of the main reasons that I am here. My delay has somewhat been because I am in search of the proper place to carry out my doing. From Traveller, the easyJet inflight magazine, I have the right place in mind and set out in search of it after my self-guided partial night tour of Belfast.

I arrive at my selected location to discover another disappointment. The John Hewitt is closed for the evening. I am not alone in my disappointment as a couple of locals have just disembarked from a taxi to face the same music, well in reality no music.

However, our combined fate becomes my good fortunate. I am told they know of another establishment just down the street that may serve my purpose just as well. I gladly follow them.

Coming in from the cold, I quickly realized that I have been pointed in the right direction. Although hundreds of options are now available to me, my target was chosen many years and thousands of miles ago. I am so excited, I find an encoding machine and immediately send a message back to the home office to confirm my findings and take final orders.

As I wait for confirmation, I am doing my best to remain calm. I hope I have not blown my cover by visibly foaming at the mouth. Then it happens, I am approached by a local gentlemen with just a wooden bar separating us and he has just one question for me.

I respond, “I'll have a pint”.

Guinness, “Gives You Strength”.
“Is Good For You”.
“Wonderful This Time Of The Year”.

Can you believe, I am having a fresh pint of it in the land where it has been made since 1759. Nothing else compares!

Thanks to The Glory Hole Bar my almost life long mission is accomplished. I also discover the reason behind one of life’s greatest drinking mysteries while at this very cool local pub that claims to have largest selection of Irish Whiskeys in Ireland.

Do you know why God created alcohol? To stop the Irish from conquering the world!
