You might be shattered after the Paddy's Day celebrations but trust us, those good intentions will have worn off before long.

Luckily, we've rounded up some great events that are taking place around the city this week and some of them are even free, so you don't need to worry too much about that battered bank account!

Des Bishop at Vicar Street

Fresh from his appearance on Dancing With The Stars, the comedian takes to the stage at Vicar Street this weekend. 

In his new show, Bishop "attempts to make sense of the world today and life in general", addressing everything from Trump to Isis, Facebook feeds to conspiracy theories and the ever-confusing battle of the sexes. Tickets are €28 and available from Ticketmaster.

Ride at The Olympia Theatre

If you were delighted to see British rockers Ride reunite in time of a performance at Electric Picnic last year, then you won't want to miss your chance to see them at one of Dublin's best venues. Tickets are €34.50 and available from Ticketmaster.

Sunny Afternoon at the Bórd Gáis Energy Theatre

This celebration of the music of The Kinks is the perfect low-key night out after a raucous weekend. The musical tells the story of Ray Davies and the band's rise to fame, with songs including You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset and Lola. Tickets start from €20 and are available here.

Table Quiz - Mother Reilly's, Rathmines

If you fancy a catch-up with your mates but don't want to do anything too hectic, a table quiz is the perfect option. There's tons of them around the city but this one takes place every Tuesday and it's FREE.


Sunday Jazz at The Barbers

Note to all - Mother's Day takes place this Sunday and if you have nothing organised by the weekend (shame on you), this is your get-out-of-jail-free card. The charming little Grangegorman pub hosts Raimonda every Sunday from 7.30ish and entry is free. You'll also get a whole platter of tasty meats, cheese and breads to make for the perfect evening.


Elle at the Irish Film Institute

Isabelle Huppert may have been the surprise addition to the Best Actress category at this year's Oscars but the veteran French star has long been hailed in her native country for her incredible performances. Her turn in this Paul Verhoeven drama is striking.
