My perfect weekend: Eileen Walsh

1. The plan for Saturday night?

Waiting for Strictly Come Dancing to start back, when Saturday nights are spent making Mexican wraps, oohing at sparkly dresses and laughing at everything Brucie says.

2. Must see gig/performance of the weekend?

Obviously Medea at the Samuel Beckett Theatre in Trinity. At this stage, though, I'd love to see it. Very hard to be in it!

3. Pub/restaurant/club you couldn't live without?

I'm rarely out of Fallon and Byrne at the moment. Their lovely coffee is streaming through my veins.

4. Best weekend ever?

A lost weekend with friends in north Scotland. Long walks,copious amounts of wine and I think a bizarre fancy dress medieval banquet was sprung on us... ahh the Burnham Hotel.

5. Worst weekend ever?


6. Favourite pre-going out ritual?

Bringing the teabags down from the high shelf. (Our babysitter Mary isn't the tallest.)

7. Top post-pub munchies?

Stuart and Gina Moxley can make tasty treats out of even cardboard so as long as I'm with them I'm sorted. (If I'm on my own... probably cardboard.)

8. Weirdest taxi queue moment?

In the taxi... the driver telling me ALL about his book of the moment about Rose West.

9. Best chat-up line at 2am?

My dream catcher's not working, can I come into your bed?

10. Your perfect date?

Obviously my husband Stuart, but say if he was chained to a radiator in the Lebanon, then probably Gabriel Byrne.

Eileen stars in Medea, which runs at Samuel Beckett Theatre until September 25, see
