The Best Guinness in Westport
I love Guinness;
And having just moved to Westport in search of balance, I thought I better go find my new local.
To ensure I gave every pub a fair and equal chance I had to try all the Guinness in the same day.
I tried 37 pubs that day.
Below are the 5 pubs which serve the best Guinness in Westport.
If it’s true what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, then I am now one strong bugger.
Which Pub Serves the Best Guinness in Westport?
I was well warmed up by the time I arrived at Blousers Pub for what became the first Guinness to make the list.
I asked the barman for his finest pint of Guinness.
He replied, he had just served it, but he can pull another.
As the Guinness settled, I let the tunes of the sisters get into me bones and had the pint down faster than a French girls knickers.
2. Tobys Pub
A few pubs later I arrived in Tobys.
I ordered a pint of Guinness.
“We don’t believe in labels in here” shouted the man next to me.
We got chatting.
His name was Mary and was a lovely woman.
I drank my stout and left,
wisdom in my step, confusion in my mind.
3. Johnny Morans
In Morans I asked for a stout.
“You met Mary I see”, replied the barman.
“Well, we have two stouts, so what are you going to do now?”
Biasedly, I ordered a Guinness.
It all made sense.
I had found pub number 3.
Several pubs later and as the evening drew near, I thought some lining to carry me through the night would be wise.
I headed to McGings for a cheeky free sandwich which along with creamy pints of Guinness, come out on a tray around 7pm every Friday.
No, they did not bribe me with the last ham and cheese; they made the list fair and square.
Guinness to die for and at this stage I nearly was.
Pub number 4 found.
5. Matt Molloys
At this stage, blind drunk, I had lost track of how many pubs I had tried.
But I knew I was going to Matt Molloys last as it was a late bar.
I made my way in that direction, headed in and ordered a pint of Guinness.
“You must be Irish.” Said the barman.
Drunkenly I replied, “Oh, so ordering a Guinness makes me Irish?, If I ordered a Pizza, would you assume I’m Italian?”
“If I ordered a Bratwurst, would that make me German?”
“So why exactly do you think I’m Irish then?”
“Sir, this is a book store.”
I then went in next door to Matt Molloys and ordered a whiskey.
I then remembered, what I was doing and ordered a pint of Guinness.
Pub number 5 was found.
I will leave where I woke up for another day.
