This weekend is a hell of a weekend to be in Dublin with everything from Culture Night to Octoberfest taking place. No matter what you're into, there is something to tickle your fancy.
At this point I’m sure most of you are well familiar with Oktoberfest Dublin which takes place for two weeks on Georges Dock starting this Friday. Go to this if you fancy beer, fun and frolics. They even have lunchtime music and drink sessions during the work week if you feel like sneaking out of the office for an hour.
