No doubt your plans for this long weekend are heating up, but if you need some help making this year’s festivities the best ever, have a look through our bank holiday guide to the week’s best events. Happy long weekend from IMAGE!

Guinness in the Liberties

The Guinness Storehouse has teamed up with Dublin’s hottest street art collective Subset for their St Patrick’s Day festivities. They’re staging a new type of walking tour through one of Dublin’s most interesting areas. The tour begins at St Patrick’s Cathedral and will meander through Dublin’s Iveagh Market, built by the Guinness family. It will then visit the oldest house in Dublin on Thomas Street, George Roe & Co Distillery, ending in The Open Gate Brewery, the home of Guinness itself. You’ll experience the story of the area through brand-new bold murals by Subset. The guided tour is almost sold out, but you can download the app and head for a St Patrick’s Day walk yourself with their interactive map.

 

Sober St Patrick’s Day 2018

We’ve spoken before about how Paddy’s Day has turned into a bit too much of a piss-up. If the usual alcohol-soaked venues aren’t for you on Saturday, the Clockwork Door on Wellington Quay is putting on a whole day of fun for sober-partiers. With baked goods, board games, live performances and new mates, this cosy venue in Dublin will make a great alternative to the crowds outside. It’s priced at €12 for the entire day, from 12 pm to 10 pm, which, if you’re saving the moolah on drink, is a pretty good deal.

 

Irish Craft Beer and Spirits Festival

By the time Sunday comes, you might not want to even look at alcohol, but if you are up for a few refined drinks, House on Lower Leeson Street is the place to go. The gorgeous venue is hosting the Irish Craft Beer and Spirits festival, kicking off at 12 pm, which will see the leading craft brewers from around the country staging pop-up stalls throughout the bar. The cutest thing? They’re using their own currency for the day (Punts, no less!) which you can buy at the door and use to pay for samples. It’s free entry and goes on till 8 pm, followed by House’s own late bar.

 

Offsite

Kick off your week with the creative juices flowing at Offsite, a creative festival around Dublin from the 18th-25th March. There are workshops, classes, discussions, book launches, music and parties to name just a few things going on throughout the week – and it’s free to register. What’s better, the majority of these events are taking place at Iconic Office’s coolest spot, the Greenway at St Stephen’s Green. The coolest independent work spot in Dublin (paired with chatting to some of the most inspiring creatives in the city) is a brilliant way to get back into the groove at work after the long weekend.

 

Eatyard Wine & Cheese Festival 2018

Spending your weekend eating cheese and drinking wine isn’t exactly an unusual occurrence for most of us, but you can mix it up and change the scenery next weekend with the Eatyard’s Wine & Cheese festival at the Bernard Shaw. Tickets are only a tenner, and with that you get €10 worth of Eatyard vouchers, plus a glass of wine on arrival. With vendors like O’Brien’s Wine and Corleggy cheese, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the offerings available. Also, there’ll be karaoke. So, that cinches it.
