Holidays are coming, holidays are coming.

You may well be stuck in work for two or three more days next week but that's no real reason to not get out there and enjoy the Christmas buzz! 

There's a host of interesting events besides the usual 12 pubs craic on to blow off some steam and we've made a handy little list of some of the more interesting ones. 

Have a gawk below and find some inspiration for an active weekend!


Escape Game: The Philosopher's Stone

Now this is a pretty original event indeed.

Xit is the first live escape game in Ireland. The goal is simple yet challenging: get out in time or face the consequences. The guys will lock you in a room with some fiendish challenges, and you'll have one hour to find your way out. 

This time around, it's your job to get your hands on the elusive Philosopher's Stone. Grab some mates and try to crack the clues while you still can!

Available other dates too!

All City Sketch Session: Christmas Special

Free graffiti and top music? Christmas really has come early.

Meet graffiti artists and watch them design some epic pieces of work whilst bouncing ideas off each other. Pens and paper will be provided but feel free to bring your own sketch pad and spray paint. If great music and even greater art is your thing, this is a no-brainer.

Runs: 1pm-5pm. This event is free, but entry is guaranteed.
