Pubs in Ireland have finally reopened after months of lockdown, and punters have no issue with spending up a storm for a good night out to celebrate.
But they have to be quick about it, as they're only allowed to keep their tables for an hour and 45 minutes.
While men are often thought of as the heavy drinkers, a group of girls in Dublin proved last weekend they can keep up with the lads.
The Old Mill, an iconic pub on the Old Bawn Road in Tallaght, reopened on June 29 and has been enjoying a surge in returning customers desperate for a pub meal and a pint.
On Saturday night, four young women headed to the Old Mill for dinner and drinks to catch up after months away from one another.
They enjoyed steak, goujons, chicken wings and chips, and split a bottle of wine and a few gins. It was all perfectly civilised - until one of them suggested a round of shots for the table.
That turned into another round, and another. By the end of the night the friends had drank 23 shots, 10 Redbulls, three Beefeater gins and one bottle of wine - all in the space of 105 minutes.
The bill ended up at an eye-watering €265.50 (£240), which the pals split four ways.
"They were double drinks so not actually single shots together," one of the young women told DublinLive.
"They were double aftershocks and Red Bull thrown in with the odd few shots of baby Guinness. A personal favourite of ours and very tasty."
She added: "We love The Old Mill. It's our local and it's a great spot. It was also lovely to catch up with the girls properly again.
Another small party of five spent Friday evening in favourite haunt The Camden, where they spent a grand total of €254.70 (£230).
In just one hour and 45 minutes, the group worked their way through 15 pints of Guinness, 8 pints of Bulmers, five Pinot Grigios and one Sauvignon Blanc.
They also enjoyed some classic pub fare of steak, pizza, tenders and fish and chips.
"We've been planning our return to the Dragon's Den [nickname for The Camden] for a few weeks now since we heard the news of the reopening," Shane Coppinger told DublinLive.
"The minute we came up to the doors, we started getting excited, we were thinking 'yes, we're back! Enter the Dragon!'.
He continued: "We'd be suck calves for the auld drinks but we're hoping to add a few Jager-john-bombs to our next list when we come back over the weekend."
Shane confirmed that the "gargantuan bill was worth every single penny".
Pubs in Ireland that serve food were allowed to open their doors from June 29, as long as they abide by Fáilte Ireland's rules.
This includes patrons having to book ahead and only being able to keep their table for an hour and 45 minutes, which is then cleaned before a new group sits down.
One person in each group must give their name and contact details to pub staff for the purposes of contact tracing.
