Each week, we bring you our top tips on what to read, watch, see and do in Dublin, Belfast and beyond! This week, we’ve been:
- ‘Miss Americana’ and ‘Pose’ on Netflix.
- Best movie Oscar winner, ‘Parasite’ – and, yes, it deserved the gong!
- Krewe, a restaurant and bar inspired by New Orleans and Louisiana (but, in Dublin, based very close to us – on Capel Street).
- Home – to mark Belfast Restaurant Week.
- House Wine Bar and Tap House in Letterkenny.
- The beautiful Orangery Restaurant at the Cliff at Lyons.
- Zero Zero Pizza in Dún Laoghaire.
- Veginity on Dorset Street, Dublin.
- ‘Notes to Self’ by Emilie Pine.
- ‘Once, Twice, Three Times an Aisling’ by Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen.
- ‘The Elements of Eloquence: How To Turn the Perfect English Phrase’ by Mark Forsyth.
- An episode of the ‘How to Fail’ podcast (we’re big fans), where host Elizabeth Day interviews Frankie Bridge, formerly of The Saturdays, on mental health issues.
- The lovely Roe & Co. distillery, the most recent addition to Dublin’s whiskey tourism scene.
- Ohana on Harcourt Street, which bills itself as Ireland’s first tiki bar.
- The Hellfire Club in the Dublin Mountains – battling (and beating!) Storm Dennis to get a hike in last weekend.
- Hodges Figgis on Dawson Street, Dublin, for the launch of ‘Big Girl, Small Town’, the debut novel from Tyrone author Michelle Gallen.
And looking forward to:
- A meal out at The Betsy in Swords tonight (that’s Elaine C).
- Anne Enright in conversation with The Irish Times Women’s Podcast – live at Liberty Hall tomorrow (that’s Emma).
- A park run tomorrow morning, followed by a 90th birthday celebration for her grandmother (that’s Julie – a huge Happy Birthday to your Nana from all at Alice!).
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
