Octoberfest in Dublin Docklands IFSC is an experience not to be missed. Enjoy a lively night out in one of the traditional beer tents where everyone makes the most of the Octoberfest atmoshphere…..

It is very easy to get to this fun festival from Egans House. You can either walk..probably a bit ambitious as it would take you at least 30minutes,

or you can bus it or probably the best option would be to take the D.A.R.T from Drumcondra Station, 5 minutes from Egans House and either get off at Connolly or Tara Street Station all within 5 minutes walk of the George’s Dock Area, IFSC..if these directions are not working for you, check out directions and more details on

The Solheim Cup gets underway…3 days…2 Continents…1 result

The Solheim Cup Tee-off commences  Friday, 23rd of September at

Killeen Castle, Co. Meath.  Europe will take on the U.S….

Killeen Castle set in Historic grounds one of Ireland’s oldest and finest 12th Century Norman castles. Six hundred acres of beautiful landscaped grounds.

Located just north of Dunshaughlin in the heart of Co. Meath, overlooked by the hill of Tara, yet it is only 35 minutes from Dublin Airport and 45 minutes from Dublin City Centre.


Over the past two decades Killeen Castle has had the input from one of the great names in golf, Jack Nicklaus

who has guided the design of this wonderful course to near perfection. Built to provide a real challenge to the champion golfer while remaining accessible to the average golfer, Jack Nicklaus has created 18 spectacular, unique holes at Killeen Castle. The course covers 350 acres among superb natural woodlands.

Here you can see the two ladies teams that will meet to take on the challenge.

The European Team

The ALL IRELAND FINAL we have been waiting for……for 16 YEARS…..DUBLIN V KERRY



The All IRELAND FINAL THIS SUNDAY will be a scorcher on the football pitch and hopefully on the day as well! Dublin will take on the might of  Kerry once again. Kerry being the most successful team in the history of the championship look to be the favourites with Kerry having won it 36 times as compared to Dublin’s 22 times. But who worries about a little thing like that?

Dublin are ready, they keep telling us so. I believe them. They have a great belief, focus, hunger and determination to lift the Sam McGuire Cup once again after a drought of 16 years. Good Luck to both teams…Go on the Dubs….Go on Kerry… What we want from you is a passion flowing throughout the game for the best result… Dublin lifting the Cup of course!

Remember also the party truly begins the evening before with FEVERPITCH 2011. Check out for more details.

I will give you a flavour of what to expect…..

Phibsborough, as an area, is a mixture of transience and permanence – this is what gives it flavour and texture. James Joyce spent two years of his childhood in a house on St. Peter’s Road, Iris Murdoch was born and lived for a short time in Blessington Street. It goes without saying that these are two great writers, and like all great writers they are also great thinkers. Whether you have lived all your life in Phibsborough, or, like James and Iris, are just passing through, join us at

Phizzfest 2011 for what promises to be a very satisfying and generous feast of great literature and even better thinking! Not to mention feasting your eyes and taste buds with the French Provencal/Bistro chef Troy Maguire.

Last years Phizzfest featured a wide variety of musical events, from the Palestrina Choir in St. Peter’s Church, to a Battle of the Bands in Dalymount: there was Jazz, Trad, Punk-Rock and most points in between, and finishing up with a day-long parade of acts on the open- air Festival Stage.
This year, we plan to do more and better. There will be a mixture of concerts, recitals and sessions, along with some more informal and, we hope, quite unorthodox and original performances, in some odd locations. There will be local musicians, former locals and visitors: Phibsboro’ has always had a diverse and inventive cast of musicians, but there is an even larger community of those who have lived here once, and remember it fondly. And that, without giving too much away, is something else we’d like to celebrate this time around.
Some events will be free, some will attract a small cover charge and some will be ticketed, but whatever your taste, and whatever your schedule, we think there will be something you need to see, something else you think you might like to see, and something completely surprising that you’ll have no idea you want to see –until you do.  Dublin singer/songwriter Ciara sidine is one to see, dubbed Celtic Ameriacano in her style, her sound is inspired by the roots of American music and her own Irish musical upbringing. Her voice is compared to the greats like, Emmlou Harris, Mary Black…..

CHECK OUT for more details on how to book and where all the gigs are at. Come and support this great festival and stay with us while you are there. We are 5 minutes by foot to Phibsborough. Ring us now on +35318303611
