Capital Collective - What Was The Best Night Of Your Life?


Irish folk are story tellers at heart and tend to get into all kinds of situations. We always find ourselves amazed (and often in hysterics) at some of the stories we are told or overhear in Dublin city. We decided to collect the craziness every week by putting a question to the capital and seeing what they come back with. This week we decided to ask people "what was the best night of your life?", and let's just say we were impressed by some of the party animals in Dublin city...

Omar Stenzky, 27, Egypt


A twelve hour party in the middle of the desert followed by an after party also in the desert but on the beach, watching the sun rise while dancing.

Eve Russell, 19, Cabra


Went to Wexford with good friends and had a bbq party on the beach with a bonfire.

Michael Lough, 35, Glasgow


Definitely the night I met Tony Hawk under the spotlights on the half pipe at the Vancouver 2010 winter Olympics.

Karissa Lyttle, 19, Belfast


I was in Amsterdam whilst travelling around Europe with friends and came across a magical barn in the middle of a forest, there were people with top hats cycling around on unicycles and people swing dancing, it was a really great night.

Niall Coyne, 44, Artane


2011 when Dublin won the all Ireland, best pub crawl ever. Party went well on into the next day.

Photographer Derek Kennedy will be hitting the streets again this week to put another question to the capital. Let us know what you want us to ask in the comments section below!
