43 East Essex Street, 2 Dublin
Everyone calls this place the Project, so I don’t know why it’s called the 'New Theatre’...apart from it’s relative newness to all the other theatres.
There are art installations, and plays by up and coming playwrights and all sorts of modern, trendy stuff that might wreck your head or blow your mind. Nothing is ever very expensive. Take a wander in, sure.
Parnell Street, Dublin 1, 1 Dublin
Unbelievably extortionate prices here, even with a student card. And yet the punters come in their droves - you have’t seen queues like this since that holiday to Disneyland when you were eight. The selection of films is good but god almighty, with popcorn and parking thrown in, you’re looking at the guts of 20 quid - You could get drunk for that.
46 Dame Street, D2 Dublin
Citibar is more popularly known as sh…rhymes with citi…-bar.
Cos it’s sh…
There are four or five floors of awfulness. On 'Twisted Tuesdays’, there are 2euro drinks…but only in the basement of despair, where you might have to queue for 45 minutes to get to the bar.
The staff are rude, the music is crap, the atmosphere is non-existant. This place will suck your soul out, sell it back to you mixed with Shark and pocket your change. DON’T GO.
26 Wexford Street, Dublin 2 Dublin
This is a pretty good venue-come-bar-come-nightclub. The venue/nightclub is upstairs and the bar is downstairs. They never get any good bands in though, so it’s mostly popular for the bar, which is a chrome and shiny leather job, with very expensive drinks that become more expensive after half 11. The club is good craic, but tends to get very techo after around 1, which is boring if you’re not off your face.
29 Harcourt Street, 2 Dublin
Ha I’m not surprised this place has been reviewed and re-reviewed, it’s one of those marmite/Kid A/Ryan Tubridy love-it-or-hate-it things.
It’s undergrond, overcrowded (Stardust II just waiting to happen), the music is hysterically, catastrophically uncool, everyone’s up from Offally and they’ve all been drinking since 2 o’clock the day before yesterday - and it’s a great laugh. Absolutely first rate, smashing craic.
On a more serious note, if you can’t pull here, there may be something very, very wrong with you. Just…bear it in mind.
24 Grafton Street, Dublin
This is a pretty good bookshop in a great location. Considering the amount of tourist footfall, there’s not as much 'Emerald Gems’ type tweeness as you might expect, but there’s still quite a bit. Wade through that, and you’ll come to an alright general fiction section.
My friend who likes crime thrillers says the crime section is particularly good.
The staff are absolutely lovely. Don’t be afraid, ask them for help. This isn’t Hodges Figgis, they won’t guffaw in your face, spit on that bestseller you were looking for and then go at you with a taser gun for having distubed them from staring gormlessly into space.
5 6 Crampton Quay, Dublin
Nerds of Dublin, roll up, roll up. Comics and comic book paraphernalia (posters, figurines etc) covering three floors. Grown men have been known to openly drool.
It’s cheaper to buy this stuff on the internet. Also they sometimes run out of stock, but the staff are friendly and don’t seem to like their employer much, so if they don’t have what you want, they’ll usually direct you to that other comic book shop on Exchequer Street.
St Stephens Green Shopping ctr, Dublin
This is a nice bookshop, though it’s no Chapters or Hodges Figges. Good selection of bestsellers and recently published books, and a small but decent Irish history section. They’ve some lovely children’s books. The shop’s not that big, so they’ve made the right choice in not trying to cram it with stock. The staff are friendly.
75 Middle Abbey Street, 1 Dublin
This is a horrible little bookshop on Abbey Street, selling a depressing selection of last year’s bestsellers, discount tourist guides and health-guru hokum. Since Chapters upped sticks, there’s been no reason to buy reading material on Abbey Street - so don’t go into that other shop down the road either, that’s the Christian Publication Centre.
23 South Georges Street, Dublin
DVD heaven for movie buffs/snobs/nerds (delete as appropriate). Sort of the Tower Records of the DVD world, they pride themselves on stocking stuff that most people haven’t heard of and don’t really want to see.
In particular, foreign films and DVDs of things that came out long before VCR was invented are a specialty. Prices are grand, considering it’s a niche store. Ask for 'Beverly Hills Chihuahua’ at your peril.
