ANYONE WHO’S EVER been to Electric Picnic will tell you that it’s an exhilarating yet utterly exhausting experience.

So here’s a pretty badly-kept secret: Many festival-goers and people working on-site trot over to Stradbally to unwind for an hour or two, have a quiet pint, or watch the match.

Of course, not everyone goes to a music festival to have a quiet pint, but if you do need one, here’s where to go:
