We've put together a list of our top picks of the events this weekend in the city. There's something for everyone and it's a great reflection of all the different tastes and interests in our vibrant city. Take a look below and see if something tickles your fancy.
If you're environmentally or morally conscious then the Dublin premiére of the film Aluna (created by the Environmental Protection Agency) is a must see, it's been hailed "the most important environmental film of all times." The film is made with the Kogi, a civilisation of people in Columbia who want to show the world the physical destruction modern life is causing the environment. This is a fascinating and visually stunning documentary that is a must see. Jean-Paul Mertinez, one of the film's producers will be at the post-screening discussion.
Donations will be graciously accepted for the Tairona Heritage Trust, who work with the Kogi.
Guerrilla Gourmet Club Summer Dinner
The Guerrilla Gourmet Club claims to "bring together fledgling artisans from across the country and matches them with major brands of integrity, creating extraordinary dinners in a unique setting" for people who love food and love where it comes from.
This week diners will be the first in the country to try this season's Connemara Hill Lamb at their pop-up dinner in the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland thanks to the GG Club's exclusive arrangement with the Connemara Hill Lamb Farmers.
The chef for this weekend's pop up is Stephen Gibson of Pichet and he will be creating a four-course meal (including wine) to celebrate the best of Irish seasonality.
Makers & Brothers Summer Opening
The founders of Makers & Brothers are opening their infamous design shed again this summer in Blackrock, and the opening party is on this Saturday. They've partnered with The Fish Shop in Blackrock and Murphy's Ice-Cream for the snacks, so you can expect this launch party to be quite delicious. They're promising lobster rolls, sea-salt ice cream, elderflower cordial, ping pong and spoon carving. You can enjoy all these delights while browsing their design and craft wares. Their Irish design pieces are really unique and we're sure you'll more than likely walk away with something pretty cool for your house.
