Are you ahead of the pack this Christmas, and have all of your presents sorted - except for that one person you just can't think what the hell to get them? Don't fret, we've got you sorted.
To whet your live-events appetite, here's a round-up of some of the best live events coming your way in 2019.
Arts, Theatre, and Comedy
Nationwide, January - May
Irish comedian, actor, writer and presenter Tommy Tiernan confirms new 'Paddy Crazy Horse' shows for 2019. As if receiving instructions from a strange and distant star, Tommy Tiernan always takes to the stage refusing to take anything seriously. The political and the personal are all up for grabs as the only goal of the evening is laughter.
Some other shows that we'd recommend for those of the theatre persuasion:
Bord Gais Theatre, Dublin - 10th - 27th April
Gaiety Theatre, Dublin - 25th January - 9th March
Gaiety Theatre, Dublin - 28th May - 1st June
The Olympia, Dublin - 10th July - 3rd August
Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin - 5th - 23rd February
Phoenix park, Dublin - 30th - 31st May
Why not take in the sights of beautiful gardens, while sampling some quality food with your family next summer at 'Bloom' in Dublin's Phoenix Park.
Another family show definitely not to be missed in 2019 is:
Citywest Hotel, Dublin - 10th - 12th May
The SSE Arena 3rd – 5th May
