If you’re willing to admit it or not, every man has a man or men they admire or aspire to be more like.

So in case you can’t decide on the guy that deserves your male admiration the most, we decided to supply you with 7 worthy options. Feel free to fill your mind with rampant jealousy as you read about their fame and riches. We like to think of it as […]

The 13th instalment of the annual Cork World Book Fest took place in the city again this year, starting on Tuesday, April 18th and finishing up on Sunday, April 23rd. The festival is one giant celebration for all ages in appreciation of books and the powerful messages that transition from thoughts to words on a page. This year it was dedicated to celebrating the life and legacy of inspirational Irish novelist and playwright, Molly Keane, who died in 1996. We at The Sharpe liked the concept of this and headed down to Cork to attend the two main events on the evening of Friday 21st April. Here we review the […]

One of the most difficult aspects of travelling is the trial of wrangling the kids, whether the trip is intended as a family holiday getaway or not. Family holidays can often seem to be more trouble than they’re worth, which is why having a family friendly hotel that meets your needs is so important. Not only are the facilities a priority, however, but the amenities that lie outside the hotel, B&B or hostel are key to making it a real family friendly destination for your break. Here is a list of five family friendly hotels around Ireland that may be of particular interest to parents and families including younger children: 1. […]

Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s top competitors when it comes to priding itself in Irish craft and heritage. It maintains a historical element throughout, even on the music scene. If there’s a bit of Irish trad and country to be had, even better! Therefore, why not grab a pint if you’re down in the Short Grass County, enjoy the great gigs that will be on offer and fully experience this fantastic pocket of culture. 5) Marah If you are not shy for some classic American Rock ‘n’ Roll jams, then you will be well at home with this group. David and Serge Bielanko were responsible for the formation of Marah […]

Adulthood is hard. There are responsibilities, the safety net of school is gone, and your parents are sick of you spending all day on the PS4 because you don’t have a job and you’ve already decided to wing it for college exams. I mean, how hard could final year exams be? Can’t be that important surely? Along with all of this, there’s the lesser issue of what products you’re using. Certain things you use are considered for those young whipper-snappers two years younger than you. Mostly, this has to do with hygiene and self-care, but it’s not always the case. Here are 8 products that you need to stop using […]

Life isn’t always fair. Sometimes, people have advantages that you wish you had. It’s not their fault, but you hate them anyway out of pure envy. This is the case with myself and people who can grow full, thick, beautiful beards. It’s a case of luck and good genes that a man may or may not be able to grow a full beard. For those who can grow facial hair, it can be an extension of your personality, a potential way to express who you are and what you’re like. Having a dope-ass beard to make follically challenged people feel inadequate is also a plus. Here’s what your style of […]

The beautiful West coast of our Emerald Isle has so much to offer this year and it’s no surprise that Galway will be named European Capital of Culture in 2020.

What Beard Style Should I Pick?

If ever there was an article directed towards hipsters, this was it. As much as it pains me to say it, as of right now, I cannot grow a full-on beard. Just enough to show people that there is facial hair there, but not enough for it to look well. The world has become an unusual place. Trends seem to last as long as our attention spans, but the intensity of these trends are unbelievable. Remember the Mannequin challenge? The Running Man challenge? Man buns? All came and went. Beards are the order of the day now, and beard styling is just a part of that trend, so this article […]

Okay, let’s say it’s all true and when I die, I shall stand at the pearly gates, face to face with my creator. No, I won’t confront him over the horrible diseases that exist. I won’t ask why he allows natural disasters to happen, or why he seems indifferent to the injustices of the world. I also won’t thank him for the wonderful life he gave me. I won’t fall to my knees and beg forgiveness for my sins. No, I’ll stare at his large, bearded, glorious face and tell him one thing: “Yes, I did a lot of horrible things in my life, but has a baby ever puked […]
