Not Going to Electric Picnic This Weekend? Don't Panic!

Croke Park Classic

The Croke Park Classic will see the University of Central Florida host Penn State in their 2014 season opener in Croke Park on the 30th August 2014. This big season opener for UCF and Penn State  will be the first time that UCF and Penn State have played outside the United States.

The American Football match is expecting to bring over 20,000 fans from overseas to Dublin this weekend. 

For those looking for some fun, there will be a Pep Rally at Dublin Castle on Friday August 29th, and a Tailgate in Temple Bar on Saturday August 30th before the match. Both are ingrained in American pre-game rituals. Not to be missed!

Our i-site network will be buzzing with tourists and locals this weekend out to socialise and celebrate!

Non-Stop Comedy at The International Bar

Did you know one of our venues, The International Bar, also doubles as a comedy venue all week long? It's hosted some very well known comedians and helped launch many of their careers. Famous acts such as John Bishop, Kevin Bridges, Ardal O'Hanlon, and even Zack Galifianakis started their careers here. 

Every Monday, Comedy Improv invites the audience to guide the show with their suggestions (Think, 'Whose Line is it Anyways?') and includes some names you might recognise from the telly. The show has traveled around the world and has had 2 seasons as a radio show on RTE. 

The Comedy Cellar has some top class comedians that have been practicing and testing their material at this venue since the 80s. Great place to catch some big names and grab a pint with friends during the week.

From Thursday to Sunday, The International Comedy Club offers one or two shows per evening. Call in to see new up and coming comedians or a seasoned professionals from the International comedy stage. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online here for the late show on Saturdays. 


Be it your first time going to a comedy show, or your preferred weekend entertainment, this venue has it all! Make sure to get there early to get a good seat... maybe one not too close to the stage!

We have 4 i-sites in this venue for brands that would like to be at the heart of Dublin's Comedy scene. The venue serves food, has a live jazz and improvised music night on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and a Songwriter and Poetry showcase on Monday evenings.
