English tourist enjoyed his trip to Ireland for unusual reason

Most people who come to Ireland do so to enjoy the striking scenery, lively music bars, the bustling cities or the multitude of attractions.

However, as with all holidays, it is often something completely unexpected that really sums up the character of a place and sticks in the visitor’s mind.

That was the case with UK tourist David Brown from Suffolk who was so taken with one aspect of his trip that he wrote in to a British national newspaper to tell them about it.
UK tourist enjoyed stopping off for an Irish coffee for unusual reason
David didn’t say what part of Ireland he had visited but we know that while he was there he couldn’t resist getting an Irish coffee.
When he went to a ‘local hostelry’ to quench his thirst he probably wasn’t expecting it to be the part of the trip that he would end up telling people about.
His short message to the Daily telegraph read: “Sir – During a recent visit in Ireland, I visited a local hostelry to enjoy an Irish coffee and asked for their Wi-Fi password. Ingeniously it was tipthebarman.
“I complied.”
It’s nice to know that you can even find examples of great Irish humour subtly tucked away in Wi-Fi passwords, and we’re glad to see that David ‘complied’.
