As County Tipperary is going sport crazy coming up to the All Ireland we spare a thought for our American visitors who may be missing their own sports - The Shamrock Bowl takes place in Dublin this weekend.
Live like a Lord or a Lady in a beautifully restored castle - well for a week anyway! Not only that, but you can have the week organised for you with day trips to some of Ireland's most historic and scenic sights.
The festival's programme supports the development of emerging artists from a large variety of artforms, both national and international. It also gives plenty of opportunity for public participation and a chance for all to have fun.
This food festival has been taking place annually in Dungarvan since 2008. The festival's mission is to showcase of the food of the region, as well as hosting top chefs, promoting interesting influences and great ideas.
