7. Hurling final

Whether you’ve tickets to see Galway absolutely batter Waterford (biased, sorry not sorry), or not – the craic will be mad around town.  

Who needs EP?

8. Go to a market 

On weekends we’re tasked with making a very tough decision from the following wonderful markets: 

  • Herbert Park, Ballsbridge
  • People’s Park, Dún Laoghaire
  • Howth Market
  • Blackrock Market
  • Ha’penny Flea Market 

Choose one (or two) and pop along.

9. B-Mused Improv – The International Bar 

Looking for a laugh to cure your EP blues? 

Dublin’s Saturday afternoon comedy show is a mere fiver in, features an “eclectic bunch of actors, comedians, musicians and misfits” AND has great craft beers no tap to boot.

Call Wicklow Street your home for the weekend and you should have a good’un. 

10. Go for a drink in Urchin 

Located underneath The Cliff Townhouse at 22 Stephen’s Green, you’ll find our latest cocktail obsession. 

The drinks are out. of. this. world. 

And the food is beyond decent too. 

I’ll let these pics do the talking…
