Dublin events

Happenings in association with Guinness Open Gate Brewery is set to host a series of three open-air screenings on August 29, September 5 and 19. The Dublin based pop-up cultural events company are famous for their open air cinema.

The Guinness Open Gate Brewery is the experimental brewery at St. James’s Gate where the Guinness brewers can brew up anything they dream up. Consumers can visit from Thursday to Saturday and try a range of experimental beers, only available in the brewery, and delicious bites from the new kitchen on site.

For the first time ever, the Guinness Gates are being opened to a special cinematic experience with the chance to enjoy a big-screen open air moment in the heart of the working brewery, a truly unique opportunity.

The movies will range from iconic classics, to nostalgic throwbacks and homegrown modern favourites. First up will be the original and best Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the 1971 classic starring Gene Wilder. This will be followed by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s rhythmic and romantic Dirty Dancing, featuring the Academy Award winning song (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.  The final screening will be Sing Street, the 2016 coming of age comedy-drama set in 1980’s Dublin and featuring an all-star Irish cast and crew.

All three screenings will also feature exciting new beers, available exclusively and for a limited time, brewed up by the team at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery, the home to all beer innovation and experimentation at St. James’s Gate.

The beers will be enjoyed alongside Cornude Artisan Popcorn. Made here in The Liberties by food adventurer Ruth, it is not mass-produced or put through factory processes, but made to order in her artisan kitchen with ingredients that are full of gorgeous, hand-picked taste combinations which have palates poppin’ at every turn. Meanwhile the Guinness Open Gate Brewery kitchen will also be open for all screenings and serving delicious ‘cinema snack’ themed dishes for all to enjoy, under the direction of executive chef Sean Hunter.

Tickets cost €12.80 and include access to one screening and a pint or paddle of choice from the Guinness Open Gate Brewery selection of both limited edition innovation brews and classic beers such as Guinness Draught.

Tickets go on-sale on August 22 and will be available from Happenings Usheru page https://happenings.usheru.com/the-festival

Happenings at Guinness Open Gate Brewery is a strictly over 18s event.

In the spirit of giving for the festive season, Kilkenny has teamed up with the Simon Community to run a Christmas gift wrapping service across their stores nationwide from December 1 until Christmas Eve.

The home of Irish craft and design will be accepting donations for the complimentary wrapping service and will match every cent raised before being donated to the Simon Community. The much-needed funds raised in each Kilkenny store will be donated to the nearest Simon Community to help those in need locally.

Speaking about the partnership, Marian O’Gorman, CEO of Kilkenny Group said, “We are delighted to be working with the Simon Community this year for our Christmas appeal. Homelessness is a major problem in Ireland at the moment and the Simon Community need as much support as possible during the festive season. The work that they do is invaluable and so worthwhile which is why we have chosen them as our partner this festive season.”

The Simon Community support over 11,000 men, women and children across Ireland. With almost 50 years of experience providing homeless, housing and treatment services to people facing the trauma and stress of homelessness, Simon’s door is always open for as long as they are needed.

The money raised from Kilkenny’s gift wrapping will go towards supporting services such as homelessness prevention, housing support, street outreach, homeless specific health and wellbeing services, personal development, food banks and drop-in centres.

Brian Ingarfield, Head of Fundraising and Communications for The Simon Community said, "We are extremely grateful to be chosen as Kilkenny’s charity this Christmas. Their generosity will have an important impact on the people who are relying on us each day. This fantastic initiative will support our vital homeless services around the country."

Television personality, Emmy nominee, and hairstylist to the stars, Jonathan Van Ness has quickly become known in the entertainment industry for his fabulous, unstoppable energy.

Jonathan’s upbeat attitude and adoration for the phrase ‘YAS QUEEN’ made him our firm favourite when we first discovered Queer Eye.

His iconic one-liners have slowly become part of our everyday vocabulary.

The beauty guru never failed to make us smile like the Cheshire Cat, even when we were curled up on the sofa, binge-watching Queer Eye in our scruffiest hoody and pyjamas.

Never forget: “You’re strong, you’re a Kelly Clarkson song, you got this.”

Jonathan’s Olympia show will more than likely be similar to his hugely popular podcast Getting Curious.

There is something quite therapeutic and rewarding about using our hands to create a beautiful object. And if learning some new skills involves a cocktail masterclass, what more can we ask?

To celebrate its one-year anniversary, Premium Irish whiskey Roe & Co is introducing a new creative workshop series. 

Brought by local creators and artists, The Roe & Collective aims to bring people together for an afternoon of creativity, craftmanship and to learn new skills, whilst enjoying some world class Roe & Co cocktails. 

The first event of the series will take place this Saturday, April 14th from 3pm to 6pm, at the recently opened bar Lucky’s, located in the heart of The Liberties.

During a fun afternoon, guests will gain an insight into different forms of trendy craft, including how to build your own terrarium, the art of silkscreen printing and a cocktail masterclass.

Professional urban gardener and stain glass artist, Alison Byrne will teach guests the history and the science behind the self-contained urban gardens, which are so popular on Instagram, while explaining the best types of plants and soil to use. At the end of the workshop you will be able to create your own miniature garden in upcycled Roe & Co whiskey bottles.

Led by Damn Fine Print, the silkscreen workshop will teach you how to use layering and overprinting techniques to create custom-made tote bags, tea towels or badges.

Hosted by Roe & Co Brand Ambassador Peter O’Connor, the cocktail masterclass will teach you how to create world class Roe & Co cocktails at home. You will also learn about the history of Roe & Co, why it is so synonymous with The Liberties and the golden era of Irish whiskey.

After the workshops, guests are invited to stay on in Lucky’s to enjoy a complimentary Roe & Co cocktail served with a delicious wood-fire pizza from Coke Lane Pizza. 

Tickets to The Roe & Collective are available from EventBrite.ie and include three creative workshops (terrarium building, screen printing and a Roe & Co cocktail masterclass), a Roe & Co cocktail and a complimentary wood fire pizza. Tickets are priced at €15 including booking fee.
