Spare a thought for all the bemused tourists realising the pubs are closed today
What joker decided to call it ‘Good’ Friday, eh?

HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY! Or should we say happy Confused Tourists, Stags and Hen Parties Day?

As the people of Ireland know all too well, the pubs and off-licenses of Ireland are completely shut for all of Good Friday. But the poor tourists don’t know that.

We kept an eye on them with the Temple Bar Earth Cam, and this is what we saw – the full spectrum of human emotion, from hope and delight to sadness and despair.

The guy with the massive backpack who looked utterly dejected


The tour group who were reduced to reading the plaques on the wall


The woman who stared at the ‘closed’ sign for at least two minutes


The man who took a pic of it


The clatter of tourists and their guide who moved on after about 10 seconds


And this one


The man to the bottom left here, who got a picture of himself shrugging in front of the closed pub


Sorry guys. Hope you can come back tomorrow?
