PICS: The Crowds Outside The Barge Last Night Were INSANE – But It Wasn't All Sweetness And Sunlight

If you work in Dublin city centre and it happens to be sunny on a Friday evening in May, one of the first places you'll think of flocking to is the Barge Pub.

And better still, it just got its big makeover in time for summer.

Last night hundreds of people made it along, with the atmosphere feeling closer to that of a music festival than a city centre pub.

If you weren't there yourself, prepare for some serious FOMO...

It wasn't all sweetness and sunlight, though

while the pictures and mood were amazing, it's a disgrace that people leave it in such a bad state. In other European cities where the weather is always good they'll have their beers in parks or even on public transport – but they clean up after themselves.

Like everything, when it comes to booze we tend to get a little carried away.
