Another weekend, and plenty more weird and wonderful events on in the city to check out. We're looking forward to listening to live music in our favourite café before heading over to the RDS to be given the fright of our lives! Read on to see our top picks for the weekend.


Fancy having the absolute fright of your life? Then you need to check out Damnation which will be running from now until the 2nd November. If you're starting to get in the mood for Halloween early then head down to the RDS where horrors of Samuel Page’s Nightmare. Visitors will journey through a labyrinth of terrifying rooms, each replicating every unnerving stage of Samuel’s demented mind. Tickets are €19 per person, or €17 for the early bird tickets and you can book here.


Hard Working Class Heroes And The City

From today until Saturday HWCH is holding a music trail that will be taking place in cafés, restaurants and shops across Dublin city. It’s free and will be taking place from tomorrow until Saturday evening. This is the perfect opportunity for people to eat and listen to the best new and emerging Irish music. I already did a piece on this festival yesterday so you can check out all the particulars by clicking here.


Dublin Theatre Fest

Dublin Theatre Fest continues this weekend. Established in 1957, Dublin Theatre Festival is an annual event that brings together artists, theatre-makers and audiences from Ireland and around the world. The festival started last week and will run until the second Saturday in October. Check out their website for the full programme.



Oktoberfest Dublin, which is located on Georges Dock, will finish up this Friday. Go to this if you fancy beer, fun and frolics. Just don't coming blaming us for your hangover!
