Airbnb Ireland for Irish Bank Holiday Deals

Posted by Jason Roe on Aug 1, 2013 1:12:05 PM

Last week, I was having a think about how the new roe clan might spend a long weekend in Ireland. With all of the recent great weather, the thought of the outdoors and some inner voice telling me to light a fire and cinder food on a barbecue was taking over. I some how got it into my head that a camping weekend might be a fun way to relax and release my inner caveman.

I started by scoured the internet, looking for August Bank Holiday special offers. There were a loads of great offers floating around but with such last minute planning, I had no hope of finding availability.

If you haven't done so already make sure to signup to Airbnb. They have some great discounts for new users.

 Bruce Mansour of Make it Happen, Cormac O'Dwyer from Dungarvan Brewing Company and Stephen Clinch of Trouble Brewing 

Its the morning after the night before. I just woke up with only a slightly groggy head after sampling some of Ireland's finest craft beers at the inaugural Irish Craft Beer Festival. The event is being held this weekend, 23 rd - 25th September 2011. There were some well known brands such as The Porter House, O'Haras and Messrs Maguire's and a few new brands (to me) such as Dunvgarvan Brewing Company, White Gypsy and BrewEyed Blonde. Check out the brewers list.

Blogger Twitter Whatever, September 22nd 2011

Posted by Jason Roe on Aug 19, 2011 9:20:51 AM

Its been April since our last meetup (I've been working flat out!).. so as part of the latest round of ad-hoc meet-ups in Dublin (Ireland) .. we decided to run another Blogger-Twitter-Whatever (BTW) meetup.

The plan is to meet up 7pm on Thursday 22nd September in Rúta, King St North, Dublin.  There will be food, drinks (free pints of the black stuff) and well .. whatever!

The meetup is quite informal, there is no agenda and no presentations. People just meet up, chat, (some people) network and everyone has a good time! It would be great if you could invite some friends to register. :P more the merrier!  I'd really appreciate if everyone could give BTW meetup a big push!

Some gardeners know how plants think!

Posted by Jason Roe on Mar 21, 2010 6:56:45 PM

Quick post to tell you how the gardening course went. Its been almost 5 years since I've done anything horticultural. Being honest, gardening has never been high up on my list of interests. I have completed some basic horticultural /science studies but most of what I covered in that time is now a distant memory.

On the morning, we arrived to a freshly baked breakfast of scones, nibbley bits and freshly ground and brewed coffee. Everyone was introduced and we went over what we were going to cover for the day. Then headed straight out to the garden and got stuck in. Peter had a variety of pots, plants and seeds for us to work with. We covered the basics of growing from seeds, watering seedlings, potting and re-potting plants.

Peter Donegan, green fingers gone wild

Posted by Jason Roe on Mar 18, 2010 10:41:15 AM

For anyone who doesn't already know, Peter Donegan is blogger who is obsessed with everything green. I have a lot of time for Peter and his greener events.

I did horticulture in school but always felt like I only had a summary view of the world of horticulture. After a lengthy phone conversation and a number of tweets Peter decided to try his hand at a DIY gardening course. I thought it was a wonderful Idea and signed myself and my other half Louise up straight away.

Peter has one space left available for March 20th. So make sure to drop him a line if your interested.

"Basically: this is for the [wo]man, parent, adult, child who wants to do a bit of green living but not farming. Enough to have summer salads, fresh herbs, maybe even some fruit – at the same time logic enough that you’ll watch footie/ daytime tv and go out rather than hug trees. You’d like a bit of green, you need a place to start but without getting bamboozled – and let it grow from here…."
