With the end of summer and the beginning of autumn comes a change in scenery, and a change in our food palettes to accommodate the soon-to-be festive season.

Despite the cold weather, one of the best things about the winter has to be the food. Gourmet meals, culinary masterclasses and a cosy setting are all on the menu of Taste of Dublin's new event.

The festive edition is set to run from November 28 to December 1 in the RDS, and is modelled on a similar winter food festival in London. 


A post shared by Taste of Dublin (@tasteofdublin_) on

The winter version of Taste of Dublin will have fewer sessions (six over four days) but will feature huge indoor square footage and a comfortable experience.

While 32,000 flocked to the Iveagh Gardens in June, 18,000 attendees are expected over the festive four days. What does this mean? More room to manoeuvre around and get the best views of masterclasses.

Entertainment, food and more will be housed inside the RDS, Merrion Road, for the perfect way to kick off the holiday season.

From November 28 until December 1, 2019, get inspired in time for Christmas.

Fifteen of Ireland’s top restaurants and food experiences will be present in this winter wonderland, ready to serve up a selection of over 50 dishes for audience members.

A packed line up of cooking demos, drinks masterclasses and live entertainment are all in the works, with 30 top chefs warming up the kitchen.

Taste of Dublin's summer festival has taken place in the capital for the last 14 years, and is now building on the hype and success just in time for the cold weather. Food is the perfect warm-up, we say.

Inspired by Tesco Finest, we can't wait to sit in on the beautiful baking shows, food and drink sampling with Ireland's top brands and enjoy the live musical entertainment.

Indulge yourself in all things food and book your tickets for Taste of Dublin: Festive Edition online here before they sell out. 

Dont worry: We won't be judgemental like Ginny Weasley if you eat your way through the RDS:

We've all been absolutely addicted to Love Island over the last four weeks, and it's reminding us how tricky the single life can be.

Especially when seemingly angelic boys like Michael and Curtis stab you in the BACK at a moment's notice. We're not over it yet, it will take time. To distract us, why not attend this gas single's event?

McGowans of Phibsborough host a single's party on the first Friday of every month from 10pm, and it's becoming a huge success for the pub. 

Image: Eventbrite/McGowans

Their next party is on Friday, July 12, and it could be the ideal spot to meet your perfect match and put a ring on it. Or just a great night out to have a few drinks, join in the games or just mingle with the DJ.

The pub have had so many enquiries that they've even added an extra date to due high demand, seeing as people evidently want to find that spark with someone during the summer time.

Whether you're just looking for lust or love, the party looks like unreal craic. They've got icebreakers in case you came alone, and games for you and your best wingman/wingwoman.

Summer can be a tricky time when you're single, or it can be the perfect season to have some fun with strangers. This event is definitely more of a relaxed environment, and you'll 100 percent have fun.

Entry is free of charge, you begin the night with a playing card and a free glass of Prosecco. If you can find the card's match then you get a complimentary drink.

Basically it's encouraging socialising through the handy means of alcohol. It gives you plenty of excuses to chat up the lad or lass you've been eyeing up the entire night…

McGowans do plenty on the night to calm your nerves and allow you to embrace the chilled out and fun atmosphere in the pub.

Register for free on Eventbrite for McGowan's Singles Party on July 12, and drag a mate along if you must.

You'll either find a lifelong lover or just a hilarious disaster dating story to tell the grand-kids. Either way, there's booze and banter to enjoy, so throw caution to the wind.


Who doesn't love a pack of Tayto?

The iconic Irish crisp brand has reached an impressive milestone of 65 years on the market.

To mark the exciting occasion, Copper Face Jacks will close its doors between 7-10pm and host an exclusive party for Mr. Tayto and his fans!


A post shared by Mr Tayto (@mrtaytoireland) on

The party will be the hottest ticket in town with a jam-packed line up of Irish music talent to enjoy.

Last night, Jordyn Woods was booked to appear at a lunch party for her new range of Eylure lashes. 

Despite the current tumultuous climate surrounding her relationship with the Kardashian clan, the model showed up to the event and made a speech. 

This week, Jordyn was accused of hooking up with Tristan Thompson, her best friend Kylie Jenner's sister's partner and baby daddy. 


A post shared by Kylie Jenner News (@kyliesnapchat) on

Jordyn seems to address her current situation in her speech at the event, saying: 

'Through everything that's been going on, you know it's been real, and Eylure has been super real.'

While this is definitely an underwhelming sentiment for what she is accused of doing, the model looked calm and collected at the event. 


A post shared by Kylie Jenner News (@kyliesnapchat) on

Jordyn was named an Eylure ambassador as she teamed up with the brand to create her own style of lashes (which look gorge, not going to lie) at the start of the month. 

The model has been removed form the Good American website, Khloe's denim and clothing company for which she previously modelled, and has been unfollowed on Instagram by Khloe. 

Nether Khloe nor Tristan Thompson have made an official statement on the scandal. 


If you're looking for something fun to do, then look no further.

A special screening is being hosted in Odeon Point Square – and it's for a good cause.

On Tuesday 5th of March at 7pm, ODEON Point Square will screen Robbie Walsh’s film Eden in aid of the Dublin Simon Community. .

All of the proceeds and donations from the screening will go to the services and support that Dublin Simon Community offer people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Meath.

Sounds fab to us. 

The Irish film Eden follows Adam throughout a day in his life living on the streets of Dublin, a man who has been left homeless in the wake of the Irish financial crisis.

If you're anything like us, you love nothing more than a good podcast.

So what better way to check out your favourites or discover new ones?

Dublin Podcast Festival is back by popular demand and it's right up our street.

Running from 26th September 17th October, our fair city will play host to live podcasts, workshops and headliner shows with some very cool acts across multiple venues.  

The incredible line-up features international and homegrown podcasters, discussing  everything from food to music to literature to football, film, comedy and much more.

One of the unmissable shows is The Guilty Feminist. 

Deborah Frances-White and co-host for the night Alison Spittle will be live at Vicar Street, 1st October, talking about the noble goals of 21st century feminists and the insecurities which undermine them. 

We like the sound of that.

Another one not to miss out on is the Blindboy Podcast in Vicar Street on 7th October.

The Podcast does not only indoctrinate mental health issues but reaches further into a wide spectrum of current topics, may it be gun laws, feminism, racism or a bit of history. BlindBoy has it covered!

I think we're all aware about the phenomenal rise of the podcast as a form of both entertainment and education. 

This will be the second year of teh festival and it looks set to just keep on growing, celebrating the podcasting world and connecting fans with the people who make them.

New York had Studio 54 and Manchester had The Hacienda but ALL of Ireland has Copper Face Jacks!

And now this Club Of Clubs is getting its very own all-singing, all-dancing musical as producers are proud to present the world premiere of Paul Howard’s latest comedy masterpiece, Copper Face Jacks: The Musical.  

Opening in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Thursday, July 5th, the musical is a celebration of a club that started out life as something of a Culchie Embassy in Dublin but has since been embraced by its home city. 

Regardless of your county colours, you’ll always find a welcome in the club that has become synonymous with having a good time for three generations of Irish nightclubbers.

Written by Ross O’Carroll Kelly creator Paul Howard, Copper Face Jacks: The Musical is a love story set on the eve of a Dublin/Kerry All-Ireland Final, when a sweet Kerry girl, who’s moved to the Big Smoke for her dream job in The VHI, ends up falling head over her flat-shoes with a true blue Dublin team member.

Can love conquer all as these two young sweethearts face massive cultural and linguistic hurdles on their road to happiness/Croker?

Only time, some great tunes and a bunch of cloakroom tickets will tell as Paul Howard uses his mighty comedy pen to celebrate the nightclub that has become home to millions of love stories and countless lost mobiles.

With Valentine's Day approaching, there are some of us who might be struggling with much more than the concept of not receiving a card this year. 

All around us in our community are people struggling with mental health issues, and sometimes silently. 

Luckily, there are places like Pieta House which work to support these individuals. 

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, iconic vintage store Nine Crows is showing serious love for both Pieta House and the wider community by launching a campaign to combat the sometimes deadly silence and stigma which can surround depression and mental health issues. 

Tomorrow, from 11am onwards, both Nine Crows Galway and Nine Crows Dublin will be hosting an event for vintage fans to come together and chill with a bottle of West Coast Cooler to raise funds for the vital work done by the people at Pieta House.

20pc of all sales made in Nine Crows tomorrow will be donated to the charity, who support people struggling with depression, self harm and suicidal thoughts. 

There will also be donation buckets on hand to lob your change into. 

'We've decided to hold an in-store event in both our Dublin and Galway stores in aid of Pieta House this Valentine’s Day where we can all hang out together and show our love for each other while raising some much needed funds for a cause that has deeply affected our community.'

'Join us for some deadly tunes, super cute selfies at our selfie station and some FREE West Coast Cooler,' reads the event description.'

 Cant make it down to update your vintage collection? You can donate to Pieta House here. 


Dublin 8 is a historically rich and relevant area of the capital, and there is now a festival en route to celebrate the dynamic Dublin district. 

Culture Date with Dublin 8 is a new, family-friendly event based on the life of the area, and best of all, all activities and events will be free of charge. 

The event will be centred around Kilmainham and Inchicore, and will include the re-opening of the Goldenbridge Cemetery, tours of Kilmainham Gaol, and artistic occasions at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

For anyone interested in the history of Irish women, there will be a number of once-off, bespoke guided tours of Kilmainham Gaol, including Women of the Gaol.

There will also be a concert to launch the re-opening of Goldenbridge Cemetery, featuring performances by the St. James’s Band and Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann.

The touring installation Assembly will be stationed at Richmond Barracks, accompanied by a sound art installation remembering the 40,000 Irish people who died during the First World War.

There will be a number of workshops with various artists at IMMA, and free entry to all exhibits over the weekend.

'We’re really excited to launch the very first Culture Date with Dublin 8 festival and our aim for this year is to engage with the people who live and work in the area and to encourage them to explore what is on their doorstep,' said Grace McEvoy, Project Manager of Culture Date with Dublin 8.

'Dublin 8 is steeped in history and culture and we want to invite them to participate in our events across the weekend and celebrate all that makes Dublin 8 great!'

'Thousands of tourists visit this part of the city each week to see the leading cultural and historical attractions located there and this initiative is about encouraging local residents as well as the many visitors from afar to enjoy all of the amenities that are located in walking distance of one another.'

The festival is on May 14 and 15, and it is definitely not an event to be missed.
