There's always so much going on in Dublin city, it's one of the many reasons why Dublin is such a fantastic place to live. Read on below for our top picks this weekend.

Fantastic Mr.Fox Open Air Cinema


The weather is cracking and we want to make the most of it by popping along to the Outdoor Cinema on Fitzwilliam Square on Friday night. This week the film is Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr.Fox, "an urban fox cannot resist returning to his farm raiding ways and then must help his community survive the farmers' retaliation". Gates open at 8pm and the film starts at 10.15pm. Tickets, €10 for grown ups (or anyone over 12), €5 for under 12's on the gate. There will be some food stalls there so no need to bother with dinner first.

Laya Healthcare's City Spectacular

Formerly named the Street Performance World Championship, Dublin’s Merrion Square is this weekend hosting the most exciting, free performance festival of the summer. The festival is taking place throughout Dublin City from July 11th -13th, it should be great craic so make sure to swing by.
