Dublin scene

How's the craic?

Some people think culture and creativity are dying out. We disagree. Music in Dublin holds more value than ever and we love fresh new ideas and initiatives to create more culture. We pay respect to the old guard, like the Dubliners and My Bloody Valentine, while celebrating the new names on our lips, like Or:La, AEMAK, and Alex Gough.

As you know, there are two things that make the heart of Dublin tick — that's food and music. Preferably, the two of them combined. We're pretty fond of these Dublin haunts:

  • The Chocolate Factory offers everything you need; from breakfast at Blas Café, to a swampy-tonk live show in the evening.
  • Whelan's has been hosting world-class live music for over 25 years
  • Fuel yourself at the White Moose café — but remember kids, bring your manners.

What is verification and how does it work?

Being verified unlocks extra features at Pirate, like Refer-a-Friend credits. You also need to have your identity verified before you book one of our DJ or recording studios, so it’s a worthwhile investment! Don’t worry, the process only takes two minutes.

TIP: Use your mobile, it's easier to get a clear shot of your face/document.

I'm having trouble with a code or lock — help?

Slow and gentle!  Our locks can be a little sensitive so put your code in slowly and as detailed on your booking — such as * 1 2 3 4 5 6. Don't forget the star!

You might be sent a four-digit code as a replacement for the booking, such as 1 2 3 4.  As above, press slowly and in this case, with no star, *.

If you're having trouble with the lock or code, please contact us and we'll help get you in as soon as possible.

Can I hire extra equipment?

In the UK you can hire various pieces of equipment for your booking. Some gear is chargeable — we've outlined how to hire and costs below. In the US, DE and IE, our studios come fully equipped.

How to hire extra equipment

  • Make a booking (or if part of a band or group, find out the booking details from the account holder)
  • Note the location, studio number, date and time of your booking
  • Fill out the form here
  • If your item is chargeable, we'll automatically charge the card used to make the booking
  • We'll text you/the account holder with confirmation of the hire and the codes to access the Spares cupboard
  • If the item is unavailable, we'll let you know via text and let you know when it's next available
  • Once you've finished your session, simply use the same codes to return the item to the Spares cupboard

Chargeable
Cymbals — £5 per booking (no time limit)

Free
Cymbal stands, keyboards and stands, mics and stands (not condenser mics), music stands, headphones (but we do suggest you bring your own).

All items are subject to availability. Fill out the form if you're ready to hire.

How do I book a session?

Our live booking calendar shows the latest availability of studios. You can book anywhere from a year in advance right up until a few minutes beforehand. Some studios are popular, so we recommend securing your slot in advance.

TIP: Book enough time to set-up and get comfortable with the gear, and set-up/pack-down anything you’ve brought along. 

What if something breaks or I need a spare?

Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares in our sites, just in case you need any further equipment or something has a fault.  You'll also find lots of spare cables and mics in our rehearsal studios if needed.

Something missing from the room or you need an item from the Spares cupboard? Hit us up on Live Chat via the website. We will be more than happy to help.
