7 Deadly Things Going On In Dublin This Weekend


It’s that time of the week again when we’ve forgotten about the horrors of last weekend’s hangover, and start dreaming about the possibilities of this weekend.

Hopes are high, inhibitions are low – and we’re still dreading checking our bank balance, but we’ll manage somehow. 

We’ve tried to cover something for everyone. Now all you have to do is choose…

1. Sound Check, Science Gallery

Trinity College’s incredible Science Gallery is kicking off its newest exhibition Sound Check this weekend which will see visitors become performers alongside hackers, designers and scientists, inventing new instruments and collaborating to explore the outer edge of sound. 

The works presented in the exhibition delve into the moment between practice and performance, design and reality, where new musical tools make us hear our world differently.

And the best bit? It’s totally free.
