Are you excited to treat yo' body to some relaxation this weekend?

Us too. 

How about saving your head from some hangover turmoil and getting stuck into Dublin's more cultural events. 

You'll thank us come Tuesday, trust us...

1. Bernard Shaw Flea Market

This deadly market runs every Saturday from 1pm - 6pm.

In here you can find anything from deadly vintage Adidas to handmade jewellery - all at very affordable prices. And sure while you're at it, tuck into a pizza at The Big Blue Bus. You'd be mad not to.

2. Go paddleboarding with Big Style

New kids on the block, Big Style, are as passionate as they are friendly - and they pretty much guarantee a deadly day out anywhere they go. 

Take a spin down the Liffey or canal with them, and if all goes well - maybe even consider one of their tempting weekends away. 

3. Open Air Art Gallery @ Merrion Square

Shake off the cobwebs while also getting some culture in with Merrion Square's gorgeous Sunday exhibition

Held every Sunday on the external railings of the beautiful Georgian Square in Dublin's city centre, this weekly event is organised by Dublin City Council and provides a deadly platform for up and coming artists to showcase their work.

6. Ireland, A Survivor's Guide

This comedy sketch show is heading into its second Summer season following a successful run last year. It has a 5 star rating on Trip advisor with rave audience reviews all 'round.

7. 1984 @ The Lighthouse Cinema

This Bank Holiday Weekend, The Lighthouse will be showing the 80's cult classic adaptation of George Orwell's terrifyingly relevant 1984.

For those of you who have neither read nor seen it, the classic George Orwell story is set in a world where absolute conformity is in action, and word and thought loyalty to Big Brother is demanded.
