With the wonderful weather we have been having recently, #TeamAlice have wasted no time in hitting hidden beaches, dining al fresco and getting involved in all sorts of Dublin events. It’s Friday and we are back with more highlights and recommendations for Dublin and further afield! Let’s take a dive into #WhatTickledAlice this week!
Out and About
Emily, the daredevil that she is, decided to take a step outside of the norm and went along for an introductory lesson at Phoenix Rowing Club in Islandbridge. Rowing lessons proved to be harder than anticipated, but definitely worth the effort!
Katie, one of the newest members of #TeamAlice, capitalized on the fantastic temperatures, taking a day trip to Belfast. There she explored the city with a Black Cab tour, navigated Giant’s Causeway and braved the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. The entire experience certainly opened Katie’s eyes to a rich Irish history. If you are looking to experience Belfast for all that it has to offer, this day trip is the one for you!
On Ciara’s recommendation, Martina decided to spend her weekend at Silver Strand Beach, just outside of Wicklow town. The ocean breeze and gleaming sun will make you feel as though you’ve been transported outside of the Irish boarders. Silver Strand Beach is a must-see, and when you visit be prepared for the frigid waters and breathtaking view.
While some of #TeamAlice ventured outside of Dublin, Darragh decided to indulge
in the local scene. The National College of Art and Design (NCAD) 2018 grad show went on this week, and the exhibition was stunning to say the least. A particular highlight was Megan McGuirk’s glass masks. Darragh was so enthralled by all the work that he has only made it half way round the exhibition on his first visit. The exhibition is open until Sunday, 17thJune, and definitely one of the Dublin events you don’t want to miss!
On the Screen
Here at the office, it is as if #TeamAlice has been caught in a spell, one that is solely focused on Love Island. At the recommendation of Niamh, Emily has become an avid Love Island supporter, and now Katie has joined the fandom telling us “It’s so bad it’s good!” The show is gathering a small fan base in the office, Love Island has to be doing something right!
Outside of Love Island, Emily also found time to indulge in the small things in life: the All-Ireland Hurling Championship. Unfortunately, Tipperary crashed out of the championship, and so early! But it is just the beginning, we’ll be waiting in anticipation to see who will come out on top!
On the Stage
Niamh and Emily managed to score tickets to the HAIM concert on Wednesday. The authentic band provided a riveting concert experience, hands down one of the best gigs you will ever experience! A HAIM concert is definitely classified as one of the Dublin events you wouldn’t want to miss. The band seems really genuine and bring an incredible energy to the stage. They’re so talented, it hurts!
On the Plate
Our very own founder, Martina, visited the “Chef’s Table” at Chapter One where she got a behind the scenes experience. The Chef’s Table is located right in the heart of all the action, in the kitchen! You get to see your food prepared in front of your eyes and experience the atmosphere of a Michelin starred kitchen. She thoroughly recommends.
On Thursday Darragh went to Nolita for a bite to eat, where they have a €15 pizza and wine special Monday-Thursday from 4:30pm. What a great deal, especially because the pizza alone usually costs €17, and it didn’t hurt that it was delicious.
Let’s talk vegan! Eva, our in-house specialist, partook of a delicious vegan banquet at The Legal Eagle. The chefs made a specialized menu for her, which included homemade crisps, salt-baked beetroot and cherry almond fruit salad to end the night. Hands down one of the best vegan places Eva has tasted in the Dublin!
And that’s all for #WhatTickledAlice this Friday. Let us know how you spent the week!
