Craft Beer of the Week: Sheep Stealer by Black Donkey Brewery

Things are really heating up in the Irish craft beer industry right now as we’re all preparing and getting ridiculously excited for the event of the year: The Irish Craft Beer & Cider Festival 2014 at the RDS. Whether you’re craft beer newbie or a veteran, this is the event you do not want to miss. This year it’s going to be better than ever because of the insane amount of new breweries that have opened in the past year. All Irish brewers will have stalls at this event, and it is your chance to talk to them in person and sample their beers, including lots of exclusive festival specials. We from the Dublin Ladies Craft Beer Society will have a stall as well, so pop by and say hello!


The Healthiest Brunch In Dublin For Vegetarians and Carnivores Alike!

It's hard to find a new brunch spot that's serving up something different from the usual fry ups, pancakes and eggs benedict, so I was really excited to hear that Staple Foods has a very alternative brunch menu. I had visited before for lunch and had a delicious salad piled high with juicy pulled pork and lime dressing, so I was looking forward to trying their brunch.


Opsh Style On The Streets: Dublin Does…Plaid Shirts

Each week, we team up with the stylish folks behind Opsh to spot the top fashion trends in Dublin...

This week we focused on a wardrobe staple most Irish men and women have been rocking for years which also happens one of this season’s major catwalk trends: the plaid shirt. No longer the exclusive uniform of the male hipster, plaid shirts are now accepted on men and women of all ages for daywear, office wear and even formal occasions. Whether drawing inspiration from 90s grunge icons like Kurt Cobain in oversized plaid shirts or simply teaming a casual fit shirt with jeans for daytime, it seems Dubliners have gone mad for plaid. If you want some fresh ideas on how to wear your favourite plaid shirt then check out the stylish folk we spotted on the streets of Dublin below or if you fancy taking this trend one step further see Opsh’s best plaid picks from across the high street. 


Emma's Cheesy Bacon and Bean Salad

Sometimes eating a salad isn't always the most appealing option, but thankfully this is one of those really satisfying and filling salads that feels like a treat. I think most things are improved with cheese and this salad certainly is. The beans make it really filling and the bacon and feta cheese give it a big smack of flavour. This is a really easy recipe that can be banged together in no time.
