That's one way to get rid of an old unwanted bed

A pub in Galway has caused quite a stir by installing a bed in their lounge.

The idea behind this pub-bed is that people can climb in, take a selfie and send it to their parter to prove they're snuggled up at home instead of out in the pub.

The marketing stunt, which is apparently not meant to be taken seriously, has worked a treat for the pub.

The photo has been liked over 1,500 times and is being shared all over Facebook.
