Stillorgan Bowling Alley Facing Closure

One of Dublin's oldest bowling alleys is facing closure.

A property group wants to demolish Leisureplex in Stillorgan, which first opened in the sixties.

Kennedy Wilson wants to make room for more than 200 apartments at the site.

The 232 luxury homes would include a roof terrace, cinema, gym and residents' lounge.

If given planning permission Kennedy Wilson plans to create four restaurants and cafes, and two retail units on the site.

However, a local Councillor has raised concerns about the potential loss of the bowling alley.

 

Octoberfest Dublin Have an Update

We found out a few weeks ago that October Fest will not be back in Dublin for 2019, but they have come out today with a statement:

To all our Irish Friends and Oktoberfest Fans- as you are aware, unfortunately Oktoberfest Dublin will not be happening this year...

The good news is, we hope to be back in Dublin for 2020 and we will keep you updated of the details here.

On a side note, they also added:

Since we have had to cancel this year, a number of small imitation events have sprung up in Dublin and some are attempting to give the impression, that they are connecting to our event. Please note, that we are in no way connected to any smaller imitation events beeing staged in Dublin this year. We are looking forward to seeing you all in 2020...
