As featured in The Dubliner Magazine….
Grab onto your gearstick! The Irish Times Motor Show 2011 has rolled into town. As Ireland’s first national motor show in over 20 years, the grand-scale experience will feature the latest models and high-end supercars for all you motoring nuts, plus family-friendly interactive fun. I’m already revving up a group car-mad friends to pop along to the RDS and drool over the shiny chassis!
25th – 27th February
Tickets from €12 for adults, free for kids.
Do you fancy a satisfyingly deep fill of Irish meat this Saturday night? Get pie-eyed at The South William with their popular selection of gourmet pies, including their traditional Guinness and beef or bacon and cabbage. Go to the laid-back cocktail bar for its chilled-out vibe, relaxed atmosphere and funky retro decor, with music seven nights a week. Now, who ate all the pies?

Feeling sinful? How about going to Church this Sunday and sinking a couple of pints by the organ? Head to The Church, where its bar, restaurant, club, terrace, juice bar and cafe are set on four impressive levels within an actual converted Church. I love their unique concept, with the original features, beautiful wood panelling and stained glass windows. Eat, drink and dance to the club’s resident DJ. No confessions required!

Us girls all want a designer lifestyle on a discount budget, like those coveted red soles and double Cs for a fraction of the cost. And the best place to start is with your nails! I adore the range from brand Model’s Own, which have consistently brought out affordable alternatives to Chanel’s glorious glosses. Check out their ‘Car Key’ range to rival the ‘Les Khakis de Chanel’ collection. Talon-tastic!
The Lighthouse Family have re-emerged from a seven-year long break at their rocky beacon, to kick-start their UK and Ireland tour at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre this weekend. With soulful easy-listening tunes and stellar hits including ‘Lifted’, ‘High’ and ‘Raincloud’, the British duo are a must-see for anyone craving a wholesome dose of ’90s nostalgia.
