Weekend Guide: From kilo sales to sunrise yoga, here are the best events happening all around Ireland

Looking for some events to keep you entertained this weekend? We’ve gathered some of the very best happening throughout the length and breadth of Ireland. Let’s get planning…

Limerick Pop Up Kilo Store

Saturday 21 January, Limerick Strand Hotel, more information

Is your wardrobe crying out for a long overdue update for the year ahead? As we become more conscious consumers, there can often be a guilt associated with treating yourself and adding some new garments to your collection, but thankfully, events like these offer the ideal solution. Bringing together over five tonnes of vintage and preloved pieces for you to search through, a kilo of clothing costs just €30, which could stretch as far as a jacket, t-shirt, shorts and shoes, or a pair of denims, a patterned jacket, and new pair of Converse. These events are also a great way to meet some like-minded individuals and have the craic in the process.

Sunrise Yoga with Maura

Saturday 21 January, Newtownsmith, Sandycove, Dun Laoghaire, more information

Kicking off at 7.30am to make sure the sunrise scenes are unparalleled, Yoga with Maura community events are a fantastic — and free! — way to connect with fellow yogis, the world around you, and your inner self. Just bring along your yoga mat, enjoy half an hour of yoga flow, and round things off with an ultra-refreshing dip in the sea. Make sure you wrap up warm, and leave plenty of time for a warming cup of coffee afterwards.

Sleeping Beauty closing night

Sunday 22 January, Cork Opera House, more information

If you missed out on seeing a panto over the Christmas break, now’s your chance to catch the closing night of Sleeping Beauty at Cork Opera House. Unlike Miss Sleeping Beauty, audience members will be kept wide-awake and entranced as this magical tale unfolds before their eyes in yet another spectacular and elaborate pantomime. Packed with amazing colour, fantastic costumes, live music, breath-taking dance and tonnes of belly laughs, this production will be a magical musical rollercoaster ride for all the family to enjoy.

Kerry Wedding Show 2023

Sunday 22 January, Gleneagle INEC Arena, Muckross, Killarney, more information

If you’re in the process of wedding planning, this wedding showcase is definitely an item for your calendar. Bringing together industry experts in marriage advice, wedding planning, and honeymoon destinations, this afternoon could alleviate a whole lot of stress for you and your other half. From florists and hotels to live entertainment and wedding fashion, everything has been thought of so that you don’t have to.

Dreamboys – No Strings Attached

Sunday 22 January, Town Hall Theatre, Galway, more information

An event that’s guaranteed to tear the house down and set pulses racing, Dreamboys are bringing their movie-quality stage sets and dance moves to Galway for the ultimate night of carefree fun.
