Whether you're eating out with the young or the old, want to go out but not 'out out' for dinner, or just are in need of a more affordable dining option, opting for an early bird is the answer, but not all are created equal. Despite their many confusing forms (pre-thea...

There’s been a few recent changes to the Creative Quarter, some sad, some exciting, so we’ve refreshed our guide to the area....

The Creative Quarter is the quarter you want to be in. The other three quarters? Well, we won’t even mention them. So clear your next day off...

Portobello is not just for cans and staring at swans, it’s one of the spots to be in after work when it’s sunny and you’re looking for coffee, food, swans... and cans. There’s a glut of places to eat and drink as well as a long pleasant stroll along the canal, and it’s...

Welcome to the point in the Irish summer where the conversation has drifted from the current state of the weather to how the summer is running away like a bold child, thus cutting the actual summer in half. If you’re trying to ignore the summer haters, eating seafood i...

The primary schools have unleashed the kids for two months and parents are scrambling to find activities for them. If you don’t have kids you’re probably still part child, trying to find things to fill up the summer calendar, but mainly your Instagram feed. There’s onl...

Sometimes we all just need to get out of the house or the library. Maybe you need to get a decent coffee into the system, or the idea of eating lunch at home is too sad, and there’s the hope that leaving the gaff will inject some fresh ideas and motivate you. Get outsi...

Another festival weekend passes, which means another weekend of gleefully watching people get soaked in the rain through social, or getting dismally drenched in a flimsy poncho that cost more than a pint. If you're one of those suffering from post-festival soakage trau...

Even if it’s not sunny, which it won’t be for the majority of the summer, it is perfectly acceptable to consume iced drinks throughout June, July, August and that weird heatwave in September. Saying that, cold coffees in the city can come at a hefty price tag, some are...

There’s an obligation in Ireland to constantly chit chat about the weather, while only dreaming of the Spanish sun splitting the rocks. That, and whenever the sun finally emerges, everyone must go outside and do something, anything. When the heat hits, beer gardens hea...

Things have been looking a bit bleak on the front lines of the industry this week. With the news of restaurants closing and beer gardens in danger it’s hard to know how many will survive the summer. But there’s hope to be the found with the return of the Flea Market an...

With so many openings to come over the next couple of months, including some new wine bars to spend the evening in (don’t worry, we’ll keep you posted), Dublin is going to be an exciting place to be this summer, with lots of extra places to visit. To get ourselves into...

We first made a guide to the Batter in late summer last year, and since then the area has had a sizeable refresh when it comes to food. Scéal have left Penders Yard to fill their rightful spot at the Fumbally Market on Saturdays, Cotto closed in February, and it's beco...

Is it even April if we don’t get orange weather warnings after an extremely hot and enjoyable Easter weekend? In the same way that everyone micro-plans their escapes to warmer climates when looking out the window at dreary weather, this time of year makes us think abou...

There are two things that are certain in post-recession Dublin - astronomical rent and brunch. Good brunch was probably one of the best things to come out of the recession (hey low VAT rate, wuu2? We miss you, come back...) Even though there’s a brunch spot around ever...

Ah yes, Easter time. A chocolate holiday with some religious ties where everyone feels obliged to eat fish on Friday and lamb on Sunday, but really this Easter Sunday will entail most people eating themselves into a chocolate coma while shouting at Game of Thrones on t...
