Paddy's Weekend - What We're Up To! #HCPicks

1. We're listening to a newly updated 'Ireland Rising' playlist, Deezer's pick of brand new & recent Irish music. 2. We're stacking our Alex and Ani high, especially their 4 Leaf Clover and Claddagh bangles ahead of Paddy's Day. They are available from over 60 retailers nationwide with prices starting from €26. Check out their website for details on retailers. 3. Amazing events happening across the city as part of the St. Patricks Festival, we're loving The Enchanted Banquet - An evening of food, music and performance by Hunt&Gather features some lesser-known Irish fables, fairy tales and folklore. Within the empty halls of Earlsfort Terrace, a mystic menu is promised for the five-course banquet. With entertainment by the Petty Cash collective, this looks like a sensory celebration with myth-making potential of its own. Saturday 15th, 7pm. 4. If that wasn't enough there is a huge programme of activities across the entire weekend for all ages, check out St. Patricks Festival for full details here. 5. And for music lovers, experience Jape in the intimate and contemporary setting of the RHA Friday 14th 730pm. 6. Or join us and pull up a chair in Toscana on Dame Street, the best seat in the house for watching the parade and being part of the atmosphere on Monday 17th. Plus did we mention the food? Mouthwatering. 7. We're planning a trip to the cinema to see Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel is a must! The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.
