4 pre-Westlife brunches in Dublin that you won't want to miss out on this weekend

Right, it's almost time.

Westlife will be taking to the stage at Dublin's Croke Park for back-to-back nights this weekend - and we can't wait.

The recently-reunited band will take to the stage at the Home of GAA on Friday and Saturday, for the final dates of the UK and Irish leg of their The Twenty Tour. 

They will then play a number of gigs in Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan and Malaysia.

And while we're ready to Swear It All Over Again at Croker, there are a few places across the capital which are offering the chance to kick off the festivities earlier in the day.

Here are four Westlife bottomless brunches in Dublin that are definitely worth checking out.



Opium are holding the Uptown Westlife Brunch across both days - and it will be chockablock with boyband nostalgia.

It costs €15 per person (plus booking fee) and includes a brunch main, as well as a Westlife-themed cocktail.

In fact, there will be a selection of Westlife themed cocktails that embody our favourite Westlife classics.

You'll also have the chance to pin your favourite Westlife lyrics to yourself with our Westlife lyric stickers

There are two seatings available: July 5, 3pm to 5pm; and July 6, 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Wigwam will be holding a pre and post Westlife party to celebrate the band's 'triumphant return to Croke Park'.

Promising plenty of Westlife and boyband tunes all day, as well as pop music karaoke, this is one fans won't want to miss out on.

There will be various movies, videos and documentaries being played across the big-screens in the venue all day.

There's also a Westlife Quiz and Bingo,  with spot prizes being given out every 2 hours.

Not only are the venue holding the "biggest" pre-Westlife brunch on Friday and Saturday, they're holding an after party, too.

Kicking off from 4pm and lasting until 8pm, the celebrations include complimentary finger food and 2 for 1 cocktails for all group books of four or more people.

They added:

"Afterwards we're diving right into the biggest Westlife After Party that's happened yet! With Chilling Drink specials, DJ's, 2 Dance Floors and our Beer Garden in full swing!"

To make things even better, make sure to hold on to your ticket if you're planning on heading along to the after party.

There is free entry to the after party for anyone with a concert ticket until midnight.
