The weekend is finally in sight but if you don’t think you can wait until Friday for a few bevvies, we have just the plan for you.
The Alltech Craft Brews and Food Festival kicks off in The Convention Centre tomorrow night, with a pretty impressive line-up of over 60 local and international craft brews, live music and delish food.
Brewers include Brewdog, Barcelona Beer Company, Reel Deal, Rascals Brewing Company and Trouble Brewing, while eats will be on hand from Gallagher’s Boxty, Pieman, Mr Donut, Cornude, Keogh’s Crisps and more.
And don’t worry if you’re not a beer drinker, there’s plenty of cider and spirits on offer too.
The entertainment line-up is ridiculously good this year, with Rackhouse Pilfer and 90s favourites Smash Hits kicking things off on Thursday night.
Spring Break, Hermitage Green, Rhythm and Beats, Brass Tacks and The Camembert Quartet will also perform over the weekend, while the Six Nations clashes (Scotland v Wales and Ireland v France) will be broadcast on a big screen.
The festival runs from February 23 to 25, with doors open from 5pm to 11pm on Thursday and Friday and 12.30pm to 11pm on Saturday.
Tickets are €15 if you buy online, or you can get them on the door for €20.
Better still, there’s a special flash sale on at the moment for tickets to Thursday night’s festivities so you can get your hands on one for €10 (inc. booking fee) if you click here.
