Head for Hollywood

Home to warm weather, beautiful beaches and the centre of the nation’s film and television industry, Los Angeles has something to suit all tastes within its borders, from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the California Science Center to Universal Studios Hollywood and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. And, if you can hire a car for a day or two, Las Vegas is just a four hour spin away.

If you fancy a cheap trip to the home of Hollywood, is highlighting roundtrips from Dublin to Los Angeles starting from €343 roundtrip on dates between November 2017 and January 2018.

Or, for something a little closer to home, flights from Dublin to New York this Christmas are available for just €353 roundtrip. Flying with SAS, with dates available between October 2017 and January 2018 (no dice on flights for New Year’s), that should give you a little extra to spend as you wander along Fifth Avenue.

Guggenheim digitises art collection

Good news for art lovers – Vice reports that New York’s famed Guggenheim art museum has made more than 200 art books available to download for free. The project began in 2012, bolstered by the recent additions of rare or out-of-publication tomes. The collection includes Wassily Kandinsky’s On the Spiritual in Art, a look at 5,000 years of innovation in Chinese art by Sherman E. Lee, and a catalogue of an exhibition held in the museum in the 1960s featuring the works of Francis Bacon.

The files are available to download in a number of formats including PDF, EPUB and Kindle.
