With the pubs now reopened after months of lockdown closure people have got a lot of socialising to make up for.
And that includes one group of four girls who hit the bar on Saturday – and ended up with a bill of more than £240 – run up in less than two hours.
To be fair the bill included some food, but the lion’s share went on three bottles of wine, 23 shots, three gins and of course 10 Red Bulls to keep the energy up.
The rapid depletion of the bank accounts happened at The Old Mill on the Old Bawn Road in Tallaght, Dublin, reports DublinLive.
After lining their stomachs with steaks, goujons, chicken wings and chips the four girls washed it down with wine, gin and ended with the shots
After 23 shots, ten redbulls, three Beefeater gins and a bottle of wine all in 105 minutes, the gang were left to fork out a bill for €265.50 (just over £240) which they split four ways.
One of the girls, who has asked not be named, said: “They were double drinks so not actually single shots together.
The bill from The Old Mill
“They were double aftershocks and Red Bull thrown in with the odd few shots of baby Guinness. A personal favourite of ours and very tasty.”
She added: “We love The Old Mill. It’s our local and it’s a great spot. It was also lovely to catch up with the girls properly again.”
It isn’t the first large bar bill reported by DublinLive.
They also found one group of fine who in 105 minutes knocked back 15 pints of Guinness; eight pints of Bulmers; five Graffinga Pinot and a Sav Blanc.
They ate steak, pizza, tenders and fish and chips bringing the bill to €254.70 (£230)
Shane Coppinger told DublinLive: “Oh I suppose, we’ve been planning our return to the Dragon’s Den (their nickname for The Camden) for a few weeks now since we heard the news of the reopening.
“The minute we came up to the doors, we started getting excited, we were thinking ‘yes, we’re back! Enter the Dragon!’.
He continued: “We’d be suck calves for the auld drinks but we’re hoping to add a few Jager-john-bombs to our next list when we come back over the weekend.”
‘Cop’ was left with the bill as his friends transferred on the money but he didn’t mind opening the wallet.
He added: “The gargantuan bill was worth every single penny.”
And in another session from the Black Lion pub in Inchicore not only was over €100 (£90) spent on food there were 66 pints of Guinness along with six pints of Heineken – which cost €465.70 (£421).
A receipt from a hotel bar in Co Meath shows how one punter spent a staggering €220.90 (£200) during their 105-minute stint in the boozer.
The pricey round consisted of two bowls of soup, a portion of fish and chips, two cokes and a leg-buckling 42 pints of Guinness.
