We may actually be in for an okay weekend weather-wise this week, which means we all need to take advantage. Why not head to a few of the many festivals and events around the city, celebrating the best art, food, drink and architecture Ireland has to offer? Sounds good to us. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


Friday and Saturday: Catch the brilliant Threesome exhibition from Signs of Power in Hang Tough Gallery

We’re already big lovers of sign painter and street artist Vanessa Power here at IMAGE, admiring her works everywhere from big commissions with Facebook and Jameson to her murals around Ireland’s blank walls. This month, the artist is hosting her own solo exhibition in Dublin’s Hang Tough Gallery in Portobello, showcasing ten new pieces. Inspired by the Pop Art era, the exhibition sees Power use three-letter words to elicit a range of responses from the audience. Running until October 17 with original pieces starting at €300.

All weekend: Look at Dublin differently at Open House

Love architecture? Love the Dublin cityscape? Then you’ll love exploring with Open House this weekend. Opening the doors to many buildings around the city normally closed to the public, the weekend festival features exclusive guided tours with the experts, exhibitions, performances, and even a schedule of events for the little architecture lovers in your life. The festival is the biggest of its kind in Ireland, and a quick nose on the website has us ready to have a nose around these buildings too.

On Saturday: Enjoy a tipple and snack at the Spirit of Dublin Food & Drink Fair

Hosted by Teeling’s Distillery in Dublin 8, the Spirit of Dublin Food & Drink fair is the perfect way to spend your Saturday if you’re a foodie (which, let’s be honest, all of us are). Showcasing some of the country’s brightest and best food and drink offerings, you’ll get the chance to try samples galore, as well as learning about how to pair your food with the perfect complimenting alcohol, and even a few demos on how to make the perfect cocktail.

 

On Saturday: Discover Ireland’s best small press artists at the Dublin Comic Arts Festival

The Dublin Comic Arts Festival does the important job of showcasing the works of Ireland’s brightest comic art talents, and gives us fans the chance to meet them directly and discuss the inspiration behind their work. Discover some new (and potentially favourite) artists and enjoy some great grub from the Blas Café.
