Dublin scene

What's the craic, Dublin?

As we say in Gaelic ‘Baile Átha Cliath’, Dublin is back with a bang. The city is home to a diverse and valued community with creatives, artists and cultural institutions, all contributing to a rich creative vein. In recent times, Dublin & Ireland have received its fair share of criticism in terms of the entertainment sector and lack of spaces for these events to take place, which has been fair as nightclubs around the whole country have sadly declined by 84% since 2000. Ireland, particularly Dublin, has used these challenges to give way to a new generation of extremely talented DJs, artists and producers who have been making waves worldwide such as Kettama, DART and Tommy Holohan to name but a few.

Although this is a worrying statistic in terms of nightclubs, Dublin is a wonderful city and has a whole lot to see and do, rich in history, food and drink, culture and of course, the Craic:

  • Dicey’s Garden: This all-weather beer garden and restaurant, connected to the Russell Court Hotel, along with the Krystle and Bond nightclubs is the perfect place to soak up the atmosphere of Dublin’s vibrant Harcourt street. Drinks & food promotions along with a DJ every night of the week has contributed to Dicey’s Garden being the recipient of many local awards. 

  • O’Donoghues: The place to be in Dublin for traditional Irish music. As a frequented ‘watering hole’ by Irish music legends The Dubliners over the years, O'Donoghue's roots are steeped in tradition and quite possibly is the best Irish pub in Dublin. With live music, a superb atmosphere and Guinness, which will always guarantee a traditional home feeling during a visit. 

  • Bad Bobs: Located in Dublin’s tourist hotspot Temple Bar, this newly renovated space captures the heart and atmosphere of Temple Bar and the surrounding area. Five floors include live music nightly, a fully stocked bar, restaurant, cocktail bar, rooftop terrace and a hidden VIP lounge — a range of spaces to impress and be enjoyed by all.

    Frequently asked questions

    The Dublin edition of our FAQs has the top things you need to know about your session. Need more help? Hit up our support team via Live Chat.

    Getting here and access

    what3words location: ///hats.desire.dine

    The studio address is Unit 69, Moyle Road, Dublin, Dublin 12.

    Driving? We have five car parking spaces at the front of the building, first come, first served.
     
    If you're coming by public transport, the nearest station is Broombridge, and buses stop nearby on Slaney Road.

    What is verification and how does it work?

    Being verified unlocks extra features at Pirate, like Refer-a-Friend credits. You also need to have your identity verified before you book one of our DJ or recording studios, so it’s a worthwhile investment! Don’t worry, the process only takes two minutes.

    TIP: Use your mobile, it's easier to get a clear shot of your face/document.

    I'm having trouble with a code or lock — help?

    Slow and gentle!  Our locks can be a little sensitive so put your code in slowly and as detailed on your booking — such as * 1 2 3 4 5 6. Don't forget the star!

    You might be sent a four-digit code as a replacement for the booking, such as 1 2 3 4.  As above, press slowly and in this case, with no star, *.

    If you're having trouble with the lock or code, use # to reset and try again. If this doesn't work, please contact us via WhatsApp and we'll help get you in as soon as possible.

    Can I hire extra equipment?

    Unfortunately, due to repeated issues with the damage and misplacement of equipment, we can no longer offer a guaranteed hire service. Keyboards and stands should still be available in spares, so please message us on WhatsApp or Live Chat when you arrive at your session for access.

    If a keyboard is essential for your session, please book a room that comes with one as standard or bring your own to the session to avoid disappointment.

    Please note: In the US, DE and IE, our studios come fully equipped.

    How do I book a session?

    Our live booking calendar shows the latest availability of studios. You can book anywhere from a year in advance right up until a few minutes beforehand. Some studios are popular, so we recommend securing your slot in advance.

    TIP: Book enough time to set-up and get comfortable with the gear, and set-up/pack-down anything you’ve brought along. 

    What if something breaks or I need a spare?

    Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares in our sites, just in case you need any further equipment or something has a fault.  You'll also find lots of spare cables and mics in our rehearsal studios if needed.

    Something missing from the room or you need an item from the Spares cupboard? Hit us up on Live Chat via the website or on WhatsApp. We will be more than happy to help.

    Are food and drinks available at the studios?

    A handful of locations do have vending machines but we suggest you bring your own food and drinks with you. Most Pirate sites are near local shops for convenience, and several sites have a kettle and microwave. Check out our support hub or the location page for your Pirate studio for further details.
