The Rugby World Cup Final 2015

argentina-v-ireland-rugby-world-cup-pumas-18102015_1peqa9s387g1e1mkdts7u4nqsz

The world came crashing down, when Argentina served a mighty blow to Ireland in the Rugby World Cup final. The Millennium stadium was jam packed with Irish supporters who witnessed a lethal and precise game strategy by the Argentina Pumas. According to sport analysts, Ireland had suffered two ties with Argentina previously and never fully recovered.

The Exhilarating Game Strategy by the Pumas

In the final stages of the rugby world cup 2015, Ireland is out of the running for the final trophy. The Irish team fought bravely, but with little effect. They lost to the daring Argentina team with the score stats 43-20. Argentina went wide in favor of posing a serious challenge to the less mobile Irish forward, which resulted in a try run by Matias Maroni in the first three minutes. The pitch belonged to the Argentineans and they got the chance to try a chip and chase attack, down the wing again, after the first ten. It was a downhill battle for Ireland after that.

The Country Wide Celebration

The whirlwind victory was celebrated by the Argentineans in Dublin, while the Irish were stunned into silence. The emphatic score by the Argentine team was unbelievable. The Irish might feel disappointed and forlorn by the defeat, but the Argentineans were seen all over Dublin celebrating in their signature blue and white stripes. The Argentine team is becoming a big name in the rugby world due to its consecutive wins against Ireland and their extraordinary performance has dubbed them the stars of the Rugby World Cup. The Ireland team played a good game, but in the face of the bold moves of Argentinean players and their big hearts, they were doomed to face failure.

Embracing Victory in Trinity Bar and Venue

Argentinean players celebrated their wins after the final whistle with a spirit of exhilaration and excitement. Supporters all over Ireland were over the moon with this win. There was even a special HD screening for the match in the Trinity Bar Dublin in Dame Street where supporters of both teams gathered to watch the game and celebrate or drown their sorrows afterwards. Over the years, Trinity Bar has become a major spot for celebration and screening of big sports events. The root tap beer, delicious food and super HD screens makes Trinity a popular destination to watch the next game with your friends and family.

The Irish team is gutted over their exit from the quarter-final. The head coach for Ireland has admitted that the Argentine team had a better strategy. However, that didn’t stop him from lamenting over the dreadful result and the Irish team’s inability to win. At the start of the World Cup, the Irish team looked promising, but their campaign to win has come to a halt and the team players couldn’t hide it well. Nevertheless, they are planning to improve their skill set and work on their collision strategies and score a win by re-inventing themselves in the future.

Top 5 Stag Do Activities in Dublin

o-BACHELOR-PARTY-facebook

If your best friend has selected you to be his best man at his wedding, your duties exceed far more than just standing beside him on his wedding day in a tux. There are several responsibilities of a best man. The most important one is to arrange a memorable and exciting stag do for the groom-to-be.

The first thing that comes into your mind when you hear the word stag do is beer and strip clubs. But there are several PG options available for people who simply want to hang out with the mates. Celebrating the last night of freedom with your best friend might put a little pressure on you. The stakes are high and you want to do right by him. We can help you find the best stag do activities that you can arrange in Dublin.

i. 4×4 Off-Road Driving

If the groom-to-be is adventurous, he will be excited by this activity. The unforgettable 90-minute session of white-knuckle driving will leave you wanting more. However, dangerous as it sounds, it is perfectly safe. The catch is that the driver has to possess a driving license, so don’t forget it at home. A party for 4 can enjoy the amazing and daring drive through the picturesque countryside. The action-packed drive is a courageous way to celebrate your mate’s impending marriage.

ii. Wilderness Adventure

This stag do activity has it all, paintball, blindfold driving, aerial trekking and a giant swing. It is the perfect way to bond with the groom-to-be in the beautiful wilderness and celebrate your friendship in the best way possible.

iii. Bohemian FC Football Tickets

Bohemian FC is the oldest and the third most successful leagues in Ireland. The 11-times winner has a fan following that is notorious for their proud and cheerful support of the club. If your mate is a football fan, the sheer buzz of watching a live match will be exhilarating and exciting for him. Sort out the tickets in advance and arrange food and drinks for you and the boys, to celebrate football in an amazing way with the groom.

iv. Go On A Road Trip

Many grooms are overwhelmed by the wedding arrangements and just need a break from all that planning and responsibility. What better way to do that than by taking a long drive or a road trip with the friends who have stayed with you through thick and thin? Arrange a road trip through Dublin and visit the cultural attractions that make Dublin the greatest tourist spot in Ireland. Visit the bars and pubs and the iconic landmarks.

v. Visit the Best Bar in Town

This activity may sound clichéd to you, but it’s not. Trinity Bar in Dame Street is one of the most unique bars in Dublin. They arrange stag do’s and have the most delicious burgers in town. The large HD screens on both floors offer you the chance to watch a game while having one of the most amazing root beers or whiskey. Another fantastic thing about Trinity Bar is that there is live music every night. So meet up with the event manager at Trinity and arrange a mind blowing stag do for your friend.

Another important thing, apart from arranging a good stag do, is to keep the groom safe. If you are arranging the stag do on the night before the wedding, take extreme precaution while getting your friend drunk. He might not be sober for the next day and it might ruin the wedding. Apart from that, have fun and arrange a memorable stag do for your best friend.

Celebrating Traditional Irish Food

beefstew

Irish food has never had the honor of being world famous. But now, Irish chefs are using local produce and hereditary recipes to rediscover the Irish recipes. They have made smart and innovative changes in the recipes passed on to them through several generations and the results are spectacular. They have celebrated their roots by giving the food the respect it deserves and making it famous all over the world by giving it a modern twist. There are many places in the city of Dublin where you can visit and experience mouth watering traditional Irish cuisine firsthand, presented in an exquisite way.

Every traditional Irish dish tells us the story of its history and folklore. Modern Irish chefs have stayed true to their roots and respected the integrity of the classical recipes without reinventing them. Some of the classical Irish foods are mentioned below which stick to their traditional heritage without losing popularity throughout the years.

Traditional Irish Stew

This dish has the honor of being Ireland’s national dish. It was originally made with beef but many people have started making it with lamb too. There is a disagreement on whether vegetables should be added to the stew or not. However, the basic stock tastes more enriched when vegetables like leeks, carrots and onions are added, which brings forth the natural sweet flavor of the veggies and adds depth of the flavor to the meat itself. Trinity Bar and Venue serves the most delicious Traditional Irish Stew which is thick and saucy. Its delectable flavor makes it one of the best Irish stews in Dublin.

Colcannon

connall

It is traditionally made with mashed potatoes and kale or cabbage. The addition of milk and butter gives it a nice creamy consistency. Scallions, chives, onion and leeks are added for texture. It is a famous side dish served in almost every restaurant in Ireland. It is an essential dish to cook on festivals such as Samhain and Halloween. Served with bacon or ham, the creamy colcannon gives a nice contrast to the crunchy bacon.

Oven Baked Ham with Cabbage

Baking and glazing a ham is one of the most difficult things. A good baked ham recipe is treasured and passed on through the generations. The succulent ham is roasted and then glazed with sweet honey and Guinness glaze and served with spiced sauce or gravy.

Traditional Steak and Guinness Pie

guinnesspie

A Traditional Steak and Guinness Pie has a strong and creamy flavor of the Guinness which gives it an extra boost. The beef is cooked in the dark silky sauce with a hearty amount of flavorful vegetables and the crunchy puff pastry which makes this pie the perfect dish to eat on a cold rainy day. If you want to try this one out, head to the Trinity Bar in Dublin and order their Arthur’s homemade Steak and Guinness Pie. The crispy puff pastry and the juicy meat served in the reduced stock, veggies and mushrooms make it a memorable food experience.

The reawakening of these old recipes has made Irish food famous in the world food scene. It has squashed the rumors that the only thing Irish people are good at cooking is potatoes. Traditional Irish food does have potatoes in abundance. But the modernization of these classical recipes has given us a preview about the flavorful dishes like Colcannon, that can be made with starchy vegetable with such amazing smooth texture and flavor that you will forget about the delicate taste of the sophisticated French Bouillabaisse.

7 Qualities to Look For In A Bar

tapsbar

When you are looking for a place to de-stress after a long day at work, grabbing a drink at one of your favorite bars in the vicinity does wonders for your mental health. The weekend blues can also be chased easily by visiting a sports bar with your mates and watching a game or two. Alternatively, you can have a romantic and adventurous dinner with your date at a bar and enjoy a drink afterwards too. All of these activities depend upon your finding the perfect bar. There are many qualities that can make a bar go from drab to fab.

Efficient Service

Good service makes a good bar. 9 out of 10 people rate a bar on the basis of how the staff treats them and the quality of service that they are provided with. The bartender and the waiting staff should be courteous and friendly. They should take your order without being pushy or intrusive. The availability of a manager on the premises is another star in the rating of the bar.

Delicious Food

Many people underestimate the availability of food in bars. Food slows down the process of gettingdrunk. Therefore, it is an extra plus point to find delicious grub in a bar. Many people can find exceptional finger food and fast food options when visiting bars. One of the best tasting burgers and aged steaks are available in the Trinity Bar and Venue over at Dame Street in Dublin.

Good Beer Collection

Bars that make an effort to provide a wide variety of spirits, whiskeys and wines to the connoisseurs are ranked highly. Although many of us have had the pleasure of drinking amazing Bloody Marys and cocktails in bars, but the thing that makes a bar, is the availability of a good draft beer, coming straight out of a tap. The brimming frothy glass of beer beats everything else when you’re visiting a bar.

Reasonable Price

A bar having happy hours or special weekly or monthly discounts Is an instant hit. This is because everyone likes to save money and a good bar provides you the opportunity to have a good time without spending huge amounts of money.

A Good Ambiance and Interior

There are a few famous bars that seemed over rated and are decorated like a fancy French restaurant. But the owners need to understand that a bar is where people come to relax and have a good drink. It should have a carefree and informal ambiance instead of a formal one. A good bar has a lively atmosphere where you can forget about the glooms of life. A friendly staff serving great food is just one part of the bigger picture. A clean and hygienic environment, good lighting and quality furniture and interior add more to it. If the bar has the facility to hold parties and feature sports events, it automatically goes to the top of the list.

Live Music

Live music is so unappreciated in today’s world. But live music in a bar makes everything more enjoyable and worthwhile. It adds the much needed oomph to the bar without making it too noisy. There should however, be a clear difference between night clubs and bars. The loud thumping trance music of a night club is very different than live music at a bar because a good bar features local bands and musicians, and provides ample entertainment to bar hoppers. If you are ever in Dublin, check out the Trinity Bar and Venue. It provides live music every day of the week.

Trinity Bar and Venue provides all of these facilities to its customer along with arranging mind-blowing parties and events with catering. The perfect location and easy accessibility makes this bar the perfect place to be.
