"Hanau" Hanau am Main by MD2nd

Hanau am Main Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 148 photos

Hesse's Hanau is an industrial city close to Main river with a lovely old town, lovely spa near Wilhelmsbad, and beautiful castles of the Princess of Isenburg and Buedingen, which are in fact located in Buedingen. Certainly the Hessian Doll Museum with its dolls from ancient times, is recommendable too.

Gf and me did less of a visit of Hanau city but checking in for G.O.D.'s play at the Hanau Irish Pub. Looking up any of my VT pages one can tell I yet have not much of a clue when it comes to "Nightlife" actually I'm not into "Nightlife" as I'm not much of a nightowl and never have been. But if something gets me on the way at late hours then that's an Irish Pub with live music! And G.O.D.'s gig was definitively worth the drive. Good stuff they do! This Hanau Irish Pub is pretty huge and was very crowded. Guess, mostly locals, very little British folks, and of course many fans of that band. Wish they had played Fiddlers Green's Star Of The County Down.

One morning last July,
from a boreen green came a sweet Colleen
And she smiled as she passed me by.
She looked so sweet from her two bare feet
To the sheen of her nut-brown hair.
Such a coaxing elf, sure I shook myself
For so see I was really there.

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay
and from Galway to Dublin town,
No maid I’ve seen like the fair colleen
that I met in the County Down.

As she onward sped, sure I scratched my head
And I looked with a feeling rare.
And I say, say’s I, to a passer - by,
"Who’s the maid with the nut - brown hair"?
He smiled at me and he say’s, say’s he,
"That’s the gem of Ireland’s crown.
Young Rosie Mc Cann, from the banks of the bann
She’s the star of the County Down."

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay
and from Galway to Dublin town,
No maid I’ve seen like the fair colleen
that I met in the County Down.

At the Harvest Fair she’ll be surely there
And I’ll dress in my Sunday clothes,
with my shoes shone bright and my hat cocked right
for a smile from my nut - brown rose.
No pipe I’ll smoke, no horse I’ll yoke
Till my plough it is rust - coloured brown.
Till a smiling bride, by my own fireside
sits the Star of the County Down

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay
and from Galway to Dublin town,
No maid I’ve seen like the fair colleen
that I met in the County Down.

    Good that you finally found that Irish pub even though your GPS gave out on you. I also got lost in Hanau once because the R3 bicycle route twists and turns a lot, and at least one sign was missing.
