Arts, culture and a lot of laughs: your weekend guide to Dublin city

It’s been a long week pals, but we’ve finally reached the end and it’s just one week to go until another glorious Bank Holiday. But don’t worry, you won’t be whiling away the hours at home this weekend – there’s so much on in the city that you won’t believe it when Monday rolls around. Your weekend guide to the city is here… happy weekend from IMAGE!

This weekend: Have some lols at the Vodafone Comedy Festival at the Iveagh Gardens

The line-up at this year’s Vodafone Comedy fest is brilliant, and tickets can be bought for individual shows each day, so you know you’re getting to see your favourites. Catch the likes of Aisling Bea, Alison Spittle,  David O’Doherty and Blindboy performing over the weekend, alongside lots of food, drink and arts performances. I would suggest Tommy Tiernan, but his shows are all sold out (sad face).

On Saturday: Be inspired at the Illustration Workshop at the National Gallery

If you’re a professional illustrator or graphic designer who’s in need of some inspiration to break into the field, head to the National Gallery from 10 am on Saturday. Illustrator and graphic designer Steve Simpson (artist in residence until August 12th) will present the day on techniques both modern and contemporary. If you’re serious about your artwork, this one’s for you.

On Saturday: Head to the All Ireland Hurling Semi-Final at Croke Park

Clare or Galway? Where you stand will never be more important as it is this Saturday in Croke Park, where the two Western teams go head to head in the All Ireland Hurling semi-final. If neither team ruffles your feathers, Cork take on Limerick on Sunday in the second semi-final too.

 

On Sunday: Celebrate at the Hotter than July festival at Smithfield Square

A good local arts and music festival always holds a fond place on What’s On here at IMAGE, and Hotter than July is the latest fixture to hit this summer. Located at the ever-busy Smithfield Square, this free festival features music from all over the world (expect Brazilian, New Orleans funk and plenty of trad) and kicks off at 3pm on Sunday. Please note, it’s family friendly so alcohol isn’t allowed.
