There'll be a whole lot of fun descending on Dún Laoghaire Harbour later this month, over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
We're eternally grateful that there's a bit of a lull in the music festival calendar for the next few weeks, so we can get a bit of a rest before The BeatYard kicks off.
There'll be a whole rake of diffent things taking place, but here's our pick of 12 brilliant bit and bobs that you should check out at the festival later this month...
