Summer is here

As summer officially starts (it make take a few weeks for the weather to catch up) the brick.ie team are busy creating the models you will see at Brick Féile this 16 and 17 July. Our international line up is also taking shape with exhibitors from the UK, Netherlands, Denmark and Portugal already confirmed and that is in addition to the mosaic challenge team from our charity partner Fairy Bricks. If any Irish AFOLs have interesting builds they think might be a great addition for the event please reach out to us.

In the meantime tickets remain available at https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/brick-feile-tickets-258568504357 but please be aware that some of the family ticket slots are very likely to sell out before the event.

If you can't wait until July for your LEGO fix, some of our Northern Ireland members have been trying some new layouts at various model railway shows.

Welcome to 2022 and Brick Féile is back

Welcome to 2022

For those who missed it we managed to participate in a Jack and Jill fundraiser event last November. It was great to display some of our models in the brick again and we really enjoyed live building the LEGO Titanic set which we then dropped up to RTE for the LATE LATE Toy Show.

We continue to host monthly zoom calls for members. Check the forum for details. We are also delighted to confirm that Ireland's premier event for LEGO fans returns on 16 and 17 July to the CityNorth Hotel near Dublin airport. We look forward to seeing what our Irish and international builders have been up to and to the return of Fairy Bricks mosaic building to Ireland.

For anyone needing a reminder of what our exhibitions are about, we were fortunate enough to be featured on Ireland AM for International LEGO Day on the 28 January where we had some some models live in the studio.

Welcome to 2021

Welcome to 2021. Here's hoping it is better than 2020.

While our physical shows are on hold due to Covid we continue to host monthly zoom calls for members. Check the forum for details. Unfortunately we have had to postpone our flagship Brick Féile event again, this time to July 2022 where hopefully we will all be able to safely host events 'in the brick'.

Those needing their LEGO event fix can check out the main segment here: https://www.virginmediatelevision.ie/player/show/809/180968/0/International-Lego-Day .

We also had some models in the Arnotts Department Store Christmas Windows over the holiday period just gone.

Brick Féile rescheduled to 2021

As previously advised on social media our flagship event with international visitors, Brick Féile, has unfortunately had to be postponed until July 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions. This will give us even more time to prepare our spectacular models for your enjoyment and it facilitates both the mosaic team from our favourite charity Fairy Bricks and our large contingent of international builders who we hope will once again be in a position to travel with their unique models. Notwithstanding the postponement, we are very hopeful that another Fairy Bricks delivery of sets to Irish hospitals can be undertaken later in the year when restrictions have been lifted somewhat.

The LEGO hobby is well-positioned for building at home. LEGO Shop at Home deliveries are continuing and we were delighted to note that the exclusive LEGO Idea House sets normally only available in Billund have been made available online, albeit only to Irish, UK and Danish customers.

Brick Féile returning this 18 and 19 July 2020

We are delighted to advise that, Brick Féile, Ireland's premier event for Irish LEGO® fans, will be returning this 18 and 19 July only to the CityNorth Hotel.

Organised by brick.ie, prepare to be amazed at the most fantastic LEGO® creations yet assembled at an Irish event, and all in support of the charity Fairy Bricks which since our successful 2019 event expects to have provided over €80,000 of LEGO® sets to Irish hospitals.

Exclusive to Brick Féile will be our international model builders to share their creative genius as well as a first and perhaps only opportunity to see spectacular custom models from Ireland's most creative LEGO® builders. All our Irish and international master-builders will be on hand to chat and divulge their latest tips and techniques.

Of course, everyone likes to get their hands on bricks.

Welcome to 2020

Welcome to 2020.

We've a busy year in store as we plan our 2020 events. Indeed we've already kicked off the new year with our first event in Athy Library last weekend in what is a very impressive re-purposing of a church by Kildare County Council. A great time was had by all as we showcased some new models aswell as old favourites. The standard of builds that emerged from the children in our brick pit was fantastic.

The schedule for 2020 is being worked out but already we can confirm our return to Naas library in May and the Kildare County Show in June. Also, after the success of last year's event, we are happy that Brick Féile, Ireland's premier event for LEGO fans, hosted by the brick.ie team with international exhibitors and the charity FairyBricks will be returning this summer. Further details will be announced later in the year.

Our summer events are happening

It mightn't seem like summer, but our busy season for events is fast approaching. While all roads lead to our massive www.brickfeile.ie event this 13 and 14 July, next up on the list is our free Naas Library event on 18 May where we expect to have up to 20 members exhibiting. This comes quickly after our very enjoyable and busy Coolest Projects event at the RDS last weekend.

On Father's Day this June we will once again be attending the popular Kildare County Show in Athy, Co. Kildare with our brick pit and fantastic models.

In the meantime planning for brick féile continues. We continue to add very exciting overseas models to the event line up while behind the scenes our own members are creating some amazing new models to premier at brick féile.

Brick Féile announced

Its been a very exciting past few weeks at brick.ie. Hot on the heels of a very successful Birr library event in January, we've been working behind the scenes planning our 10th anniversary event 'Brick Féile' on 13 and 14 July at the CityNorth Hotel, only 15 minutes up the M1 from Dublin Airport.

Brick Féile will be very special to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It will be our largest ever event with our biggest layouts all able to fit under one roof. Not only will brick.ie members be bringing their fantastic LEGO models but we'll have many international model builders with their own creations to share with us for the first time in Ireland.

For ticket information see https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/brick-feile-tickets-56668775834

Perhaps best of all we are excited to be bringing the world record breaking FairyBricks LEGO mosaic team over to Ireland also for the first time to allow our visitors sample that fantastic building experience.

Happy New year

As 2018 comes to a close, we can reflect on our busiest year ever with a very successful first event in Blessington Library before Christmas which we hope will become a regular event in our calendar. We were also delighted with the turnout for our annual member's family day held in Naas, a week later. It was great to see so many of our members and their families enjoying themselves at our largest meetup of the year with lots of competitions, building and chat.

There will be no time for LEGO cobwebs. 2019 starts as a hectic 2018 ends with an exhibition already lined up for Saturday 26 January at Birr Library, our first display of the new year. Why not check out what our members have been up to over the Christmas break?

Wishing all our members and visitors every good wish for 2019.
