Bunburys. A good place to just sit down for a while

Started off with a trip to the Bank Top Brewery Tap on Belmont Rd on a very rainy Thursday evening. No matter what time I go in the Tap, it always seems to have a bit of a buzz going on and tonight was no different with Dave Sweeney in his place at the end …
