Gung Hei Fat Choi! Any events happening locally near you (that's not in Dublin), I find it hard finding events around Ireland.
Chinese-related news and interests in Ireland and also from around the world.

I've been using t-shirt company since 2010 for our PyCon Ireland conferences for their t-shirts and bags. The quality of the t-shirts available and screen prints have been top notch. The service is quick and very dependable. They delivered on time. And if you have a budget, they are very helpful as well. I have since used them for a recent event for a short run, and the value and service provided now matter how small is fantastic. I have referred t-shirt company to many of my friends, and they are happy with the results and customer care. Highly recommended and it's always great to support local.

I haven't been in awhile, I use to live in the apartments across from them. The food is really good, and staff were very nice.

Love this place, I don't even drink. Bartenders with bow ties, Guinness, city centre, no loud music, it's fantastic. Good place with a group of friends. Always a default place to go to when we are figuring out where to go.

Organised meet ups there. It was grand. Staff were friendly. Got the usual platters of food. Use to have a friend who live close by and met him there sometimes for a drink. Like most pubs, it has tvs and are turned on quite loudly.

Went there for meet ups but not held there anymore. The muffins are delish, unfortunately the service is something else. They also were not that welcoming to the meet up groups anymore. But do go in and have a coffee/tea and enjoy the ott decor.

The library bar is a great place to meet friends. But I normally held small events in their meeting rooms. For an evening event like talks, it's quite good value compared to other hotels. Aside from that, I haven't stayed in the hotel, or eaten any food from there, so can't comment or rate on those.
