We are not making this up.
As much as it may sound like an event we concocted in our dreams, the fact is it’s true: a festival celebrating ‘The Best Of Everything Gin’ is on the way to our neck of the woods.
The Spirit of The City is taking place in the Cork Cricket Club, Mardyke Walk on March 30th until April 1st, when an authentic traditional style travelling big top will play host to Cork gin and beer lovers alike.
Expect communal table reservations, table service and a truly mouthwatering selection of local and international craft gins such as Kinsale, Blackwater, Monkey 47 and Hendrick’s (to name just a few) alongside an array of specially brewed beers.
Ciders, a selection of wines, Champagnes, gluten-free beers and minerals will also be in plentiful supply, so it’s a good thing Hans Frankenfurter, Wok & Roll and Bao Boi will be on hand to provide some much-needed soakage.
Local and national bands, street performers, fire breathers and DJs will keep the beer garden rocking while everyone kicks back and soaks up the spring sunshine.
Early bird tickets (a bargain €8.70) are available here. We’re already booking the Monday off to accommodate the hangover.
