Alfie’s restaurant is situated on South William Street in Dublin 2.

bistro-53-restaurant-maynooth-review

When deciding where to go for a nice lunch in a place that isn’t Subway, McDonald’s, Supermacs, etc. in Maynooth, there are a few factors that can make the decision a bit easier: Price – You’re not going to spend a load of money on lunch when there are so many cheaper alternatives. Food – If the restaurant has a theme or certain menu that doesn’t appeal to you, you’re not going to want to go. It’s simple really. Quality – This probably is the most important factor in your decision to be honest. You won’t spend on bad food, it’s just illogical. Therefore, I decided it was best to […]

the-best-up-and-coming-irish-bands-to-watch-out-for

When it comes to the world of modern music, we certainly aren’t short of a diverse selection of tunes.

This year we have some great newcomers to look forward to and fresh suggestions for Irish bands whose gigs you need to go and see! 5) Young Earth If four young lads from Dublin with a flair for indie-pop appeals to your tastes then you are in the right place.

the-brew-dock-dublin-review

I must admit, I desperately tried to avoid being this guy. I really did. I know what you’re all thinking. This is just another review from another arsehole who likes to let everyone know that he drinks Craft Beer. I swear this happened by accident. Please believe me. I stumbled upon The Brew Dock one cold Tuesday evening, as my girlfriend and I were early for a bus and had some time to kill. We weren’t in the mood to hang around Bus Áras so we decided to try out what we thought was an “old fella’s pub”, for the warmth more than anything. Boy were we surprised. “The Brew Dock”, […]

boojum-abbey-street-review

There are quite literally hundreds of places to get grub in Dublin City Centre, but when I eat somewhere I think it’s so important that 1) the food is good (well duh!), 2) the staff are friendly and 3) that it’s good value for money. I recently ate at Boojum on Abbey Street and I have to say it ticked all of these boxes. The Food Okay, if all you eat all day, every day, are your Mammy’s Sunday dinners, which consist of half boiled veg and bone dry meat, then Boojum isn’t for you ‘cause there’s a real possibility that your mouth will explode from the first bite of […]

the-workmans-club-dublin-review

Rating What makes a good music venue these days? A dynamic atmosphere, quality DJ’s, sound staff, cheap booze and perhaps most importantly a place that doesn’t require you to show up at the door in any sort of made-to-measure elegant attire. Well if you’re looking for a taste of all of the above, most people will tell you that you are bang out of luck and are asking too much of one venue, given the variety of clubs and bars that Dublin has to offer for differing desires. With the Workman’s Club however, there are a touch of all these qualities and more, there is a feeling of familiarity that […]

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Blanchardstown

Rating The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Blanchardstown is the ideal hotel destination for guests wishing to indulge in anything from a shopping spree to a romantic getaway. This four star hotel effortlessly caters for either business or pleasure with rooms starting from around €113 for two people per night. Our stay in the Crowne Plaza was to catch an early fight the following morning. In addition to this, we wanted to avoid the traffic in the city but also desired to do some shopping on the day of arrival. Staying here fulfilled all three criteria. The Hotel The hotel itself is quite visually pleasing and is teamed with friendly, helpful staff. The […]

Sligo Park Hotel

Rating Sligo Park Hotel The Sligo Park Hotel is right along the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland and is a perfect retreat for a romantic getaway, a short business stopover or even a family break. If travelling across the country from Dublin or coming from North or South you are sure to be drawn in by the beautiful scenic sights along the trip to the hotel which is located right on the outskirts of Sligo town. There is ample parking available outside of the hotel so no need to worry if you have traveled by car. Once you have reached your destination the next step is meeting the front desk staff who are more than happy […]

O'Sheas Merchant review

Hotel reviews are 100% circumstantial. If you’re a businessman or an elderly couple away on a trip for work or just peace and quiet, you’ll want a completely professional environment with serenity and maybe a nice view. However, if you’re a 21 year old Journalism and New Media student coming from Clare to Dublin to go to a messy concert in Phoenix Park, you’re not all that bothered about the atmosphere around the place when you arrive back at half one in the morning covered in mud and smelling like a brewery. On this occasion, I was the latter. Along with two friends, I got a train to Dublin for […]
