Damnation is coming… WIN tickets! 4

Damnation is the horrifying story of Samuel Page as told through a labyrinth of terrifying rooms and unnerving setups where you are immersed in the experience.

Hunger Games: Summer Lovin’

The past week has contained enough brief snatches of sunshine to drive a summer starved man insane.

Not to worry though because there’s plenty of tasty reasons to […]

Hunger Games: The Craft Cocktail Showdown

For too long in Celtic Tiger we were plied with watered down mojitos and over-priced cosmos. Presently in Ireland we’re experiencing something of a cocktail renaissance. Maybe it’s the influence of Mad Men, maybe its a dissatisfaction with the standard Smirnoff Ice / Fat Frog offerings of an audience that’s grown up and matured? Whatever […]

NYE Dublin Festival 2011 concert

Competition: NYE Dublin – This is what you should be doing

I am mad about New Year (far more than Christmas itself). I buy into the symbolism of it – out with the old and in with the new. So, I love to mark each one differently. This year, now that I’ve returned to city centre living, I’m embracing the New Year in Dublin. NYE Dublin, […]

The stage is set….. the room is full to the rafters, the lights dimmed, the voices in the audience suddenly grow silent as Fred Cooke’s voice booms out over the speakers welcoming everyone to Whelan’s and thanking them for coming, before announcing that he won’t be gracing the stage just yet as he is in […]

Culch Valentine’s: The round-up

There’s a certain laziness that pervades when something is a hobby and not a jobby. Sure you’d like to write acerbic, witty commentary of a Thursday, maybe a couple of gig reviews peppered throughout your week, dash off a Photoshop of something and a funny cat on a Saturday morning. But then there’s arse grooves […]


Comedy Review: Trinity Arts Festival Monday night comedy @ The International

When the opportunity to spend a few hours in the company of college students came along, I of course jumped at the chance, hoping it would make me feel infinitely younger than my 27 years – throw a couple of comedians and the International Comedy Club into the mix and I’m sold. Which is why […]
