What’s Hot

The Sitting Room

A cocktail bar above Delahunt on Camden Street in Dublin. 

Kerrygold shortbread biscuits

Another way to eat butter. We’re not complaining.

Private clubs opening up

The Stephen’s Green Hibernian Club will open its diningroom to non-members in October.

Castlepalooza

Tullamore’s favourite music festival kicks off next Friday.

Dublin Bikes expanding

Hopefully the new sponsor will mean new stations opening soon.

Balega Silver Socks

Awesome running socks that halt blisters, bacteria and odour.

GAZE

The LGBT film festival in Dublin opens next Thursday with marriage equality documentary The 34th.

What’s Not

Vaping jargon

Mods, ohms, coils, wicks, and lung rips. Vape shops need a translator at the counter.

Boots

Backlash over the chemist’s price for the morning-after pill.

A new Irish city 

A prospect discussed by Ministers last week. Maybe they should just work to improve the existing ones?

Insta story excess

We don’t actually need to see your life streamed on Instagram. 

Wearable tech for pets

A ball that measures your dog’s fitness? Collar-mounted cameras? A tracker for cats. No thanks.

Guy Ritchie

His King Arthur: Legend of the Sword film lost Warner Brothers $150 million. Oops.
