The weekend is a glorious time of the week where you can actually go that extra mile and do something fun and different. 

There's a host of weird and wonderful events taking place in our fair city this weekend and we've made it our mission to make sure that you're aware of them.

Here are our top picks: 

1. The Nightmare Realm

It's that time of year again.

The Nightmare Realm will open it's doors today and we are super excited. This event is not one for the faint-hearted however, as it is set to prey on "your deepest fears and nightmares and twisting them into a deadly reality." Stepping into a real life horror film is the perfect way to spend your weekend, right? 

The countdown to Halloween is on.

Where can we sign up?

2. Hard Working Class Heroes

An event created to celebrate Irish music and talent, what more could you want.

This weekend there will be a wide range of gigs taking place in various venues across the city. This is the perfect way to check out some hidden gems in the Irish music industry right now while enjoying a few scoops with your mates.

There will also be discussions running throughout the weekend, for anyone who's really committed to the cause.

3. Free Comedy Night

If you want to take it easy this weekend and keep away from having a drink, Accents Coffee & Tea Lounge will be hosting a free comedy event.

This is one of our favourite places in Dublin to go to have some chill time so it will be the perfect way to de-stress this weekend. 

Get there for 9.30pm!

4. The IFI Documentary Festival

I don't know about you, but I have to watch at least one documentary each weekend, I'm a little obsessed.

What better way to watch a documentary than to take a visit to the Irish Film Institute in Temple Bar?

This festival will show a range of acclaimed documentaries from near and far. There will be features, shorts and Irish premieres, as well as a tonne of Q&A's throughout the weekend.

5. Miss Saigon At The Bord Gáis

We all love a good musical and Miss Saigon is up there as one of the best. Full of action, love and heartbreak this show is sure to be a memorable one.

We guarantee you'll need to bring the tissues for this one.
