1) Four Tickets To Otherside Festival With A Banquet From Happy Endings, Slane


Happy Endings are heading for Slane this July to host a Middle-Eastern inspired banquet style feast, Zhug, at Otherside Music & Arts Festival. Inspired by trips to the Middle East & Africa, and using the "zero kilometre" food movement by sourcing ingredients from Rock Farm and the Boyne Valley, the menu includes dishes like sumac burrata and jalapeno zhug; baharat white bait with calamansi and garlic aioli; and Rock Farm chermoula beef onglet with miso onions. We've got four weekend camping tickets for Otherside to give away, with music, comedy and hot tubs running from sun up to sun down, as well as a table at Friday night's Zhug banquet, worth a whopping €850. Get tickets for Otherside here, and tickets for the banquet can be found here.



2) An Overnight Stay With Dinner In Aloft, Dublin City Centre


How better to end a night in town than by flopping into a hotel bed, after maybe one last cocktail. The four-star Aloft, in the heart of The Liberties, with its cutting-edge design elements and modern in-room technology was built to stand out from the rest, and we're sending one of you off for an overnight stay, with dinner and a cocktail in Tenters Gastropub and breakfast the next morning. If you time your stay right you might even catch one of their monthly live gigs on the 7th floor, in collaboration with Hotpress magazine. Check out Aloft here. (Prize subject to availability and not available on blackout dates)




3) Dinner For Two With Cocktail Pairings, Big Fan @ Roe & Co.


Big Fan are popping up at Roe & Co for three weekends only, and we could not love their promo video any more. The menu includes all the head-spinning flavours we've come to expect from the Michelin-recommended Aungier Street resaurant, including Irish razor clams with pickled lotus and okra, and charcoal bao with braised beef, vinegar-pickled cabbage and salted plum, and the Roe & Co mixologists have been working their magic to come up with the perfect drinks pairings. We've got a tasting menu with cocktails for two to give away on the date of your choice between now and the 2nd of July, and if you can't wait, bookings can be made here.



4) Cocktails And Food On The Belvedere Terrace At The Shelbourne


The gorgeous terrace hidden away upstairs in five-star The Shelbourne Hotel has just relaunched as "The Belvedere Terrace", serving the premium vodka's new organic range, infused with 100% organic and fruits and botanicals as part of the new drinks offering. It's the ideal city centre hideaway, perfect for an ultra comfortable, al fresco drink whatever the weather, and we've got a prize of cocktails for four from the new Belvedere cocktail menu (two each), with a choice of the Belvedere blackberry and lemongrass spritz; pear and ginger spritz; or lemon and basil 75, or you can keep it classic with a regular or espresso martini. They'll also serve up two sharing platters of food (a choice of shellfish or meat and cheese), to round off your Shelbourne summer evening in style.
