Photo Hunt - Dark


The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is dark. This photo was taken in the Malpaso Bar in Millstreet on a quiet Monday evening. It may be a small pub but I love it.

Dark! Dark? Ooo, I see, dark. Sorry it's so blindingly bright out here in the sunshine with the lap top on my .....er......knees.
Cheers

Looks like a neighborhood bar. We lived in Baltimore Md and every neighborhood had a little bar like this.

I love small pubs, they're just so much more intimate than large bars! have a great weekend :-)

Cheers Jams.

I am surprised that there is a quiet bar. Most bars I have seen are either too rowdy or noisy.

Heather said...

Nice, Monday night small crowd when You wanna go where everybody knows your name. Great picture

IRISHKAT said...

There is nothing wrong with a small pub. I think I see a stool calling my name now!

Patsy said...

I was in Ireland in June. Love your country!! Gives a whole new meaning to the word green. :) We didn't find this cozy pub, but did find a couple we really liked. Thanks for a sharing a great shot.

Melli said...

It's a neat shot too! Did you TAKE it in B&W or edit it? I like that effect on this... probably adds to the "dark" feel too...

Queen of My Domain said...

It looks like a very cozy place to be.

Liz said...

Very atmospheric! Is it in Ireland? It doens't look like an Essex pub!

It sure looks like a very cool place to hangout. I actually prefer smaller pubs than the bigger ones. It's more relaxing to hangout in such places, in my opinion ;)

Everyday Healy said...

That's doesn't seems like the noisy pub like it always did. That's a cozy place. May be it's the effect of the black and white? :P

Valtool said...

Always enjoy a good ub, but prefer a well-lit one as I am typically playing cards or trivia. I took a different slant on the theme.
