From Pride parades to film festivals, here are 5 things to do around Ireland this weekend

As we all know, having to work while the sun splits the stones outside is a unique form of torture. Thankfully, the weekend is stretching out in front of us and it’s time to get planning.

Schweppes at The Big Grill, Herbert Park

Schweppes is bringing the fizz to The Big Grill festival with a host of exciting lineup of acts and DJs as mixologists stir up daring cocktail combinations across the weekend. At the Schweppes Ultimate Mixer Stage, you’ll find music from the likes of January Winters, Tara Kumar and Toshín, among others. Have a look at the festival programme right here.

Boyne Valley International Film Festival

Friday 12 and Saturday 13 August

Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Boyne Valley, the two-day inaugural Boyne Valley International Film Festival is set to feature the best short films from around the country, and the world, with a special focus on films made in the region.

Swiftogeddon: The Taylor Swift Club Night at The Grand Social

Swifties of Ireland, unite!

There’ll be deep cuts, extended mixes, fan favourites and all the hits Taylor-made for you. Got a Blank Space in your diary? Fill it up with this one, because she’ll never go out of Style. Okay, I’ll stop now. Click here for more.
