8 Deadly Things On In Dublin This Weekend


It’s that time of week again where last weekend’s hangover has finally left us be – and we start thinking about what we’re (and our hearts, heads and feelings) are going to get stuck into this weekend. 

Thus continuing the Circle of Life. 

This weekend has loads going on, with activities suited to the faint-hearted and not so much. Food, drinks and fun – all you have to do is choose…

1. Stoneybatter Festival 

A festival celebrating community, food, culture, history and family – the Stoneybatter Festival should be top of your list this weekend. Expect deadly music, friendly vibes and to meet all of those neighbours you’ve never met before.

5. Ricky Gervais @ The 3Arena

Expect powerful speeches, views on current events and hot takes on the world’s politics. 

6. 2017 June Flea Market 

A bizarre bazaar of vintage clothing, bric-a-brac and what nots. Held the last Sunday of each month at the Dublin Food Co-op, The Green Door Market, and on the square at Newmarket, Dublin 8, this market is not to be missed. 

The powers-that-be do ask you to please come by foot, bike or bus – which means less fumes, less parking stress and more fun for you.
