Dublin and Music


So today I got thinking about Music in Dublin and really there are so many great venues! The Closest to Dublin Cottages is Marlay Park in Rathfarnham. Generally they hold Rock Concerts this year Greenday are coming and last year DJ Fat Boy Slim played too. Many of our guests here at Tibradden have enjoyed the Concerts at Marlay over the years.

Another great venue is the O2 in Dublin (formerly The Point Depot). There are some great concerts coming up including Lady GaGa, JLS, 50 Cent, Rod Stewart, Rihanna and Cirque du Soleil.

There are other great venues such as The Village and The National Concert Hall.

There are also many other venues for Comedy and Theatre but that's for another post I think!

Shopping in Dublin

A lovely January Day! Popped into Town, in Dublin we call the City Centre town! Got the bus in and the Luas home. Found great bargains in Arnotts Department Store in Henry St, their January sale is amazing! Pat in the Sports Dept is a fountain of knowledge! When you shop in Henry St Dublin you see the real heart of Dublin.

Then out into O' Connell St and over the River Liffey, past Trinity College to Grafton St and a real treat..Afternoon Tea in Avoca Handweavers in Suffolk St. Then headed to Dundrum Town Centre to see a movie

Talk Soon

2010 kicked off in Tibradden with a beautiful Snowfall! Spring is starting to arrive now and before we know it we will have the lambing and calving starting. We have already had our first lamb of the season-still unnamed as of yet- on January 15th. He is a purebred Suffolk Lamb. The lambing will start in earnest around St. Patrick's Day

The Snowdrops and Daffodils are starting to arrive too...

We are now in the thick of the Rugby Season, and Cian's Senior Cup Rugby Team will be facing St. Gerard's in Bray in a few weeks' time; and the girls will be out jumping the ponies soon too...

We love Spring here at Tibradden...
