The sun is out, which means we're all dying to get out of the office and enjoy the fine weather.

There's such a great buzz around the city so there's no excuse to stay inside watching Netflix - you'll have time enough for that once the rain returns.

Here are a few events worth checking out...

Go to an open mic night

This is genuinely one of the most underrated ways to spend an evening in Dublin. Our city is full of incredibly talented musicians and you can hear many of them for free at venues across the city - try the Apollo Sessions @ The Bleeding Horse on Sundays, The Circle Sessions @ The International Bar on Mondays, Song Cycle @ Whelans on Mondays, That's It @ Sin É on Mondays and Open Mic @ The Barbers on Thursdays.

Musician? Just pop along and get involved!
