    Smirting & The Smoking Ban

    by orlikins Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Smirting is a combination of the words smoking + flirting, geddit? It started when people had to go out for a ciggie after the ban was enforced, and got chatting to fellow smokers outside on the street, eyes meeting across a cloud of blue nicotine... ;) So you may just meet a local hottie in this way!!

    REMEMBER - Since March 2004, you CANNOT smoke inside bars, cafes or restaurants, or anywhere where people are working (e.g. taxis, offices etc.)
    The legislation is officially known as the Public Health (Tobacco) Act, see link to it below for a summary.

    You may smoke in outside in the street or in designated smoking areas, but never inside a place where people are working (includes offices, bars, restaurants, shops, shopping centres, taxis, etc)

    While you're walking around the village lanes, take a look at the ways that homeowners show visible pride in their little pieces of Howth. You know about flowerboxes, but these are flowerBOXES, practically gardens in their own right.

    the over-the-doorway stained glass detail makes it fairly evident what is being served inside this harborside restaurant!
