Stayed at the Radisson Blu for work and while the hotel bar/restaraunt was decent, it was extremely easy to walk to Kealy's for dinner and a pint. They have a great selection of beer and whiskey with a good mix of traditional and non-traditional irish food. Key points are as follows.
1. Beamish on draft.
2. Steak Sandwich/Fish 'n chips are great.
3. Staff is super helpful and friendly.
4. They seemed to always be somewhat busy, but never packed.
So I'm sitting at the bar at Kealy's and this girl walks in and starts talking to the young lady tending bar. One girl mentions to the other something they were wearing looks "massive". I didn't want to be rude but I couldn't un-hear the comment and needed clarification, I interrupted them and said "what did you just say to her?", after she repeated herself they could tell I was a little confused and put-off by the comment. They went on to explain that "massive" is used as a compliment in that context. Needless to say, MY MIND = BLOWN.
Now I'm back in the states and eager to show how worldly I am, so whenever I meet a female, I'm sure to casually work my newly learned compliment into conversation. I.E. "that dress makes you look simply massive". My results have been less than positive.
