8 Deadly Things Going On In Dublin This Bank Holiday 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 bank holiday 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. Mother ft. Michael Pope: Guardian of Le Galaxie 

This incredible take on words includes three things:

  • Good tunes
  • Great drink deals
  • And one helluva night

Anyone who hasn’t been to Mother before – now’s your chance to get stuck into one of the best night’s around. Don’t miss out.
