McHugh's Dinner

Well, it is 2 o'clock in the morning and I have arrived home by taxi. I have spent the evening in Belfast; and, indeed, there were many foreign visitors and tourists.

BP and self dined at McHugh's, Queen's Square, and we chatted to three most agreeable German girls beside us. They were staying at the Obel Tower, Donegall Quay.

BP enjoyed the rock-fried sirloin steak, while I opted for the confit of duck with green beans and garlic roast potatoes.

The meal was concluded with Irish coffees. We humoured the tourists by responding agreeably to their talk of leprechauns and Irish hospitality.

From McHugh's, we ventured onwards to the Cloth Ear in Skipper Street, an appendage of the Merchant Hotel.

Several rounds later, we vacated that establishment and ambled up Hill Street to the Duke of York, which was closing, so we continued on to the John Hewitt bar in Donegall Street, where another few rounds were imbibed.

A taxi took us home.

You dirty eating hungry hounds. What am I going to do with you. Her Ladyship dined on sweet and sour chicken after a very long time in the JDLC. Pruned! Not a good look. T and I met two lovely Polish guys and she made freinds with a couple of sisters. I propelled like sharks ... or dolphins depending on your point of view. Glad you had a nice time hound dog. MMx

Could we request that Lord Belmont do some work on the historic buildings of Belfast?.As frequent visitors on European Heritage Open Days, we have been hugely impressed by the Belfast Buildings Preservation Trust's work across the City. It would be great to know more.
