In your context, I'd use "craic", I suppose.

Over here, I'd use "crack".

Part of me is a bit irked by this; the "Irish" spelling is already taken to be the more "correct" spelling by many eedjits, and will eventually supplant, I expect, the original word. Which isn't a great problem, but I confidently expect people who have never heard it pronounced to start calling it "crake", and eventually that will become the word that is used. Or maybe I'm just too pessimistic. D'you think?
