MacGowan's Irish Pub in Frankfurt

26 posts in this topic

 

Anyone want to meet up next week in an Irish Pub? MacGowan's in Bornheim is http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/m...wans_irish_pub/, but http://www.macghiollade.com/ is also on Bergerstr. and was pretty full last night. I don't know yet what Mac Ghiolla Dé means, maybe someone can fill me in?

 

Oh and the MacGowan's on Zeil's homepage is http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/m...pub/mac_bar.htm

Oh and Gen the MacGowans in Bornheim has changed hands and is now called Mac Ghiolla Dé but sorry I cannot help on the meaning.

 

I heard Paddy is no longer at the Zeil one maybe it is safe now?

From their website:

 

 

Mac Ghiolla Dé is an old Irish surname which translates in English to "Son of the servant of God".

English forms of the name are Benson and Gildea.

"Mac" is son and "Dé" means God leaving "Ghiolla" meaning servant.

My oh my well we've got a chronic of the pubs going here now. I wanted to try the Mac Ghiolla De´, once for the name and once because they have Irish and Indian food so may be the closest curry house to my apt. ;)

 

I don't know Paddy from Adam but if he's someone / something to avoid, I'm fine for going to the Zeil place. I'm still free tonight, anyone else in the area?

Tomorrow at MAc Ghiolla could be a winner for me as I'll be in a step class over the road until 9pm. I could grab a quick shower and meet you for 9:30?
