Cheltenham Nightspots - 6

O'Neill's is one of the only Irish pubs in Cheltenham and is a fantastic place to go for a few pints on St Patrick's Day. It was the other choice for my post that day but I settled on a Guinness Toucan instead! The pub is on Montpellier Walk and takes advantage of the wide pavement for extra tables, on warm summer evenings the place has a huge crowd outside. O'Neill's is part of a chain of pubs named after the number one Irish jockey Jon Jo O'Neill. He is now a racing horse trainer and I should imagine he gets a good renumeration package for the use of his name!

A great spot for a dry afternoon or evening for sure ... but looks a bit wet today.

That's more like it. None of your sitting outside in the sun eating breakfast, like in Jilly's Menton photo today!

I will have to say that I don't see people sitting out in the rain. I think that says something about your weather. Like us, everyone is waiting on warmer weather.

It is a nice photograph. Have a nice weekend.

I can't believe it.

We have snow today. It's been a very snowy winter--so much for global warming.

I've always enjoyed stopping for a pint after photographing and touring around. This looks like a definite stop. I like the reflections on the wet pavement.
