"Oh my Gawwwd, it's waaay too early to talk about Christmas".
That's you, Grinches in the comment section. That's what you sound like.
I will now address my people, the Christmas lovers of the world, and tell them the wonderful news that the most festive pub in Dublin, The Hole In The Wall on Black Horse Avenue, has just begun the lengthy process of decking its halls with boughs of holly (? fa la la la la, la la la la ?).
If you've never experienced this 400-year-old establishment's Christmas decorations for yourself then you haven't lived... Okay that's a bit of exaggeration, but they are very, very nice.
When you see the finished result, you can understand why it takes two weeks to complete...
Once you combine that with its cosy fireplaces, you're left with one of the best places to be in Dublin at Christmas
Holidays a' comin', folks.
