Ireland’s Got Talent

Audiences around the world watching Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday night were left wowed by the beautiful and moving performance of The Presentation School Choir, Kilkenny!

We take our hats off to Jamie’s Italian for the high standards

The famous restaurant of Jamie Oliver in Dundrum has a great reputation for the high quality of food served and the people do not disagree about the fact that Jamie’s Italian is really good. To avoid this any issues getting a seat, Call them (Number at the bottom of this post) and plan ahead – chances are high that you won’t get a seat simply dropping in.

Go from sandy toes to sitting in this awesome gastropub right on the beach

The first place we stopped by after the 2 hours drive from Dublin for ‘dunch’ is called Tides, before going in – I think it’s important to know that the location of it is right as you leave the beach: Tides, is owned by the Stephen Patrick Hunt – an Irish international footballer and currently plays for Coventry city in the UK. Upon entrance to the Bar on the right, there’s a welcoming warm fire for those cold days and nights  in Ireland. The fire in the bar has a well designed brick wall surrounding it and adds a very welcoming color, on top...

My name is Liran and I arrived here 3 years ago after finding a job online.

Initially I thought I'll work for a year and leave, but something else happened.

I fell in-love with Ireland, and thus have built Hats off Ireland Blog with the purpose to promote Restaurants and Entrepreneurs alike while exploring all the hidden gems of the country.

Hats off...!
