Pouring the perfect Guinness Pint

29F4D78A-0DDA-48F0-89E1-83EC8C440098

Wow, what an amazing time I’ve had in Dublin. One of the things I always wanted to do in Dublin was pour my own pint of Guinness. This is such an amazing opportunity that I think everyone should take advantage of if they are ever in Dublin. You can pour your own pint at the Guinness Storehouse or there are a few pubs that will let you pour your own pint if you ask. I went to Ned O’Sheas Pub to learn how to pour a pint and had a blast! It is an excellent pub near the river in the Viking Quarters with an amazing atmosphere. You can pour your own Guinness pint, and find a variety of traditional Irish dishes. The Guinness stew is a great dish to have on a chilly day while sipping on a pint of Guinness. Finally, after pouring the perfect pint you can celebrate by drinking the pint and take home the certificate they give you with your name on it. They also have t-shirts that says “I POURED THE PERFECT PINT AT NED O’SHEA’S DUBLIN” for €15. For anyone who’s interested in checking out Ned O’Shea’s click here: http://www.nedosheas.ie

How to pour the perfect Guinness pint:

  1. Tilt the glass at a 45-degree angle
  2. Open the tap by pulling it all the way forward until it reaches just underneath the harp
  3. Set the glass down and let the Guinness sit for 2 minutes. This allows the beer to settle
  4. Once the beer is settled, put your glass back up to the tap and finish filling it, so you get that nice foamy top as shown in the picture above
  5. Enjoy!!!

Slauncha!

Niall Horan Flicker World Tour (Dublin)

IMG_2992

On Thursday March 29, I saw Niall Horan at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland for his 2018 Flicker World Tour. Niall did another fantastic job performing as per usual. This show was a little better than when I saw him in Boston because he sang some songs by other artists such as Crying in the Club by Camila Cabello and Dancing in the Dark by Bruce Springsteen. He gave us a pleasant surprise by playing the piano while singing an unreleased song called So Long that unfortunately didn’t make it onto his Flicker album. His set list consisted of songs such as On The Loose, The Tide, This Town, Paper Houses, You and Me, Dancing In the Dark, Seeing Blind, Too Much to Ask, Flicker, Fools Gold, So Long, Since Were Alone, Fire Away, Crying in the Club, Mirrors, Drag Me Down, Slow Hands, and finally On My Own. He was excited to announce that he went platinum in Ireland and sold a total of 40,000 tickets just for his two Ireland shows. That is something to definitely be proud of because something like this doesn’t happen everyday to a lot of artists. Therefore, I send all of my congratulations to him! He has come so far as an artist from when he first started out with One Direction to now. I wish him many more years of wonderful success!

I look forward to seeing him again! #FlickerWorldTour2018

Julia Michaels

Before I went to see Julia Michaels open for Niall Horan at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, I didn’t know a lot about her. However, after I saw her perform, I was truly surprised. I can now say that I have a new music artist that I like to listen to. During the performance, she sang some of her big hits from her album Nervous System which included Pink and Issues. During her performance, she really got into her music by dancing and twirling around the stage while singing. She was a bit nervous and self-conscious, but she had no reason to be with such a fantastic performance. She is a very talented artist with a beautiful voice and an emotional presentation of her music. She also really puts her self out there for the audience to feel her passion and emotions when performing. She really related her emotional music and made a strong connection with the audience while singing.

I look forward to seeing her again soon!
