Dublin LEGO fan event round-up – Brick Féile 2023
We travelled across the Irish sea to Brick Féile in Dublin this July for a weekend of LEGO inspiration – and fundraising!
The 15th and 16th July 2023 saw the Brick Féile LEGO fan event back in Dublin at the CityNorth Hotel for a weekend of LEGO fun for all ages.
Hosted by Brick.ie, the Irish LEGO User Group, in aid of the Fairy Bricks charity who donate LEGO sets to children in hospitals around the world, Brick Féile saw its third year in 2023, after an inevitable break for Covid.
As usual, we selected a few of our favourite models from Brick Feile this year, and what better place to start than a LEGO model of Dublin itself!
This huge street scene built by @999_bricks represents the Easter Rising of 1916 in LEGO bricks, centred around the General Post Office in Dublin. The Post Office building was demolished by the British after the rebellion was extinguished – well worth a read in to the history here. The buildings are all superb representations of the street as it was, and the number of minifigures in the scene is huge!
Brick.ie’s collaborative model this year was Dublin Zoo, and the results were superb – the enclosures were brilliantly detailed, and the reptile house in particular was an impressive LEGO model in its own right!
Jessica Farrell had a range of dioramas featuring superb brick-built LEGO dinosaurs on display at Brick Féile this year, and there were brilliant to behold – not just the dinosaurs themselves, but the cleverly concocted scenery to place them in presented a stunning overall display.
Jessica is also co-author of the How To Build LEGO Dinosaurs book, so it’s no surprise her dinosaur models are so superb!
A big thanks to David and Breda for organising the event – and the invites over the years! – and to the Brick.ie team for being such brilliant hosts all weekend.
