Storm Eleanor battered the west coast of Ireland on Tuesday, causing mass flooding, uprooted trees and electricity loss.
It didn't manage to quench the Irish spirit in one pub though! The Salt House is a pub in Galway City that is right beside where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean.
As Storm Eleanor raged on in Ireland on Tuesday night some parts of Ireland were battered by high wind speeds and torrential rain.
Galway was hit particularly hard and there was some very severe flooding in the city but it would take a lot more than that to keep the Irish away from a good pub! Have a look at this footage posted by Fergal O' Brien on his Twitter account:
There are no sandbags blocking the door and no one seems particularly bothered by the rising waters. You can hear American tourists inside the pub having a chat with some of the locals.
In the second video, you can see people sitting at tables and at the bar enjoying their pints and having a laugh.
Some people around the country have been angered by the weather service as there was no flooding warning issued before the storm hit.
As a result of this, Galway City will be dealing with a huge cleanup operation and 50,000 homes around the country remain without power.
The Galway City Council told The Journal that Tuesday's extreme weather conditions was completely unpredicted:
“We put out a notice yesterday warning about the Status Orange level of winds and hide tide, but we didn’t expect this level of flooding when the warning went out, based on the forecast we were given.”
High wind speeds, unusually high water levels and low barometric pressure are thought to be contributing factors to the surprise flooding.
How did you fare through Storm Eleanor?
