What's the craic, Dublin?
As we say in Gaelic ‘Baile Átha Cliath’, Dublin is back with a bang. The city is home to a diverse and valued community with creatives, artists and cultural institutions, all contributing to a rich creative vein. In recent times, Dublin & Ireland have received its fair share of criticism in terms of the entertainment sector and lack of spaces for these events to take place, which has been fair as nightclubs around the whole country have sadly declined by 84% since 2000. Ireland, particularly Dublin, has used these challenges to give way to a new generation of extremely talented DJs, artists and producers who have been making waves worldwide such as Kettama, DART and Tommy Holohan to name but a few.
Although this is a worrying statistic in terms of nightclubs, Dublin is a wonderful city and has a whole lot to see and do, rich in history, food and drink, culture and of course, the Craic:
- Dicey’s Garden: This all-weather beer garden and restaurant, connected to the Russell Court Hotel, along with the Krystle and Bond nightclubs is the perfect place to soak up the atmosphere of Dublin’s vibrant Harcourt street. Drinks & food promotions along with a DJ every night of the week has contributed to Dicey’s Garden being the recipient of many local awards.
- O’Donoghues: The place to be in Dublin for traditional Irish music. As a frequented ‘watering hole’ by Irish music legends The Dubliners over the years, O'Donoghue's roots are steeped in tradition and quite possibly is the best Irish pub in Dublin. With live music, a superb atmosphere and Guinness, which will always guarantee a traditional home feeling during a visit.
- Bad Bobs: Located in Dublin’s tourist hotspot Temple Bar, this newly renovated space captures the heart and atmosphere of Temple Bar and the surrounding area. Five floors include live music nightly, a fully stocked bar, restaurant, cocktail bar, rooftop terrace and a hidden VIP lounge — a range of spaces to impress and be enjoyed by all.
- Amps - Marshall MG100HCFX 120w Guitar Head, Marshall 1960A 4x12 300w Guitar Cab
- Amps - Boss Katana Guitar Head, Marshall MX412A 4x12 240w Guitar Cab
- Bass Amps - Ashdown/Fender Bass Amps and Cabs
- Drums - Natal Arcadia or Pearl Export five-piece drum kit (please bring your own drumsticks)
- Microphones - Stagg SDM50 vocal microphones and stands
- PA - Pioneer XPRS PA speakers
- Mixer - Alto 1202 12 channel mixer or Proel MQ12USB mixer
