This Galway Pub Is Bringing Back 'Holy Hour Lock-In' For One Day Only

You might not remember a certain thing called Holy Hour, but up until 2000 pubs would be forced to close their doors from 2-4pm on a Sunday - which obvs led to a shit load of sneaky lock-ins during the afternoon.

This Easter Sunday, a pub in Galway is bringing the holy lock-in back, and it sounds absolutely bangin'. 

Here's what to expect:

"Holy Hour lock-ins every Sunday used to be the Craic in Ireland. We would all pretend we were at mass and swomp pints for Jebus."

The Blue Note Galway is closing the gates, bringing down the blinds and inviting you in for two hours of Drinking, BBQing, Raving, Quizzing and Blasphemy until the priest comes to clear the place at 4.

 Don't be left out in the cold, find your salvation in our warm snug 'no camera' paradise.

There's also some heavenly deals...

Lamb of God barbeque burgers for "those lucky to be inside the pearly gates."

Holy Hour drink promos too good to advertise (we believe ya), and a tablequiz that the organisers hope they get arrested for.

Perpetual soul raffle for goodies and Galway's finest DJs playing music to save your soul.

And the best part?

"Confession booths to give up your aul sins after the weekend."

This sounds absolutely feckin gas, sure what else would you be doing on a Sunday? 

Tickets are a fiver, and include a Free Pint, BBQ and legal fees available from The Blue Note or here.

This is an over 18's event, and there's apparently "no height restrictions". Grand.
