Hallowe’en in Dublin

It is widely believed that the holiday we now know as Hallowe’en originated right here in Ireland, from the ancient pagan Celtic festival of Samhain. Today, All Hallows Eve, or Hallowe’en is a night filled with fun and mischief – kids go trick or treating, everybody parties, and we all dress up!

Dublin has a fantastically haunted history with sightings of ghosts to this day – even in some pubs! The Dublin Bus Ghost Tour is a great way to  brush up on this history and raise all your hairs on end, or you can take a hanuted walking tour if you want something a little bit more active. For the bravest, The Nightmare Realm is a huge haunted house in Ballsbridge that promises to terrify all who enter its doors.

This Hallowe’en night, join in the celebrations in the very centre of Dublin city, right here in Trinity Bar Venue, where we’ll have great live music until late! Come in costume and dance the night away with goblins, ghouls, vampires and werewolves. Coming with a crowd? Book in advance to save your space!

5 Reasons You Should Eat Out Tonight

 

Don’t slave over a hot stove tonight, let us persuade you to come in and choose from our delicious menu

 Screen Shot 2016-10-17 at 18.14.19

Skip On The Clean Up – You do enough work around the house, and you’ve had a long day! Let someone else clean up for once.

Try Something New – Maybe you make the same things all the time because it’s easy, or you have everything you need to hand… But it’s not very exciting! Eating out gives you the opportunity to try something you’ve always wanted to.

Choose Whatever You Want – Cooking for your family can mean catering to different tastes, and almost inevitably leads to complaints! When everyone can choose off the menu, everyone’s happy!

Spend Quality Time with Family and Friends – Everyday life can get in the way when you’re eating at home… People coming and going, rushing here and there – eating our gives you a chance to really spend quality time in each others’ company.

As The Saying Goes… Treat yo’self! – Because after all, if you won’t… Who will? You deserve it!

Sampling Fine Whiskeys

Screen Shot 2016-10-02 at 21.50.11

 

At Trinity Bar Venue, our dedicated bar staff have done all the work to bring you a wide selection of the finest whiskeys from Ireland and around the world, so all you need to do is make your choice, sit back, and enjoy! If you’re just a beginner to the world of whiskey, there are a few things to take note of when savouring this spirit:

The Nose

The ‘nose’ is the aroma of a whiskey. Terms used to describe it can vary from light to rich, robust to mellow, or simple to complex. The addition of a little water can bring the full bouquet of the spirit to the fore. However, care is to be taken when adding ice to whiskey, as it can have a muting effect on the aromas.

The Taste

As the first sip is held in the mouth, our numerous, acutely sensitive taste buds differentiate the taste profile of the whiskey. Whiskey may be described in a variety of ways: as having a sherry richness, spicy, nutty, dark chocolate, vanilla, woody, honey, full-bodied, creamy. A good whiskey will stimulate your taste buds, evoking these flavours and more.

The Finish

Having savoured the taste, the finish refers to the defined flavour that lingers in the mouth. It may be different to the initial sips, leaving a sweet, dry, or smooth essence on the tongue.
