What’s On: Your weekend guide for things to do in Dublin

The sun is out. Repeat, the sun is out. This is not a drill. Between barbeques and beach walks, we’re sure that you’ll have no shortage of things to do this weekend. But if the weather does turn, here are our picks for the things to keep you occupied till the next heatwave. Happy weekend from IMAGE!

 

On Saturday: Get in touch with your arty side at the Dublin Comic Arts Festival

If you’re into underappreciated art, this event in the Generator on Saturday is perfect for you. The Dublin Comic Arts Festival is all about shining a light on small press Irish comics and gives you the chance to meet and chat with the artists themselves. Great if you’re an aspiring artist yourself, but equally great if you’re just into art appreciation.

 

On Sunday: Experience Japanese culture at the 2018 Experience Japan Festival Day

Japan has such a rich culture with its food, fashion and history and this weekend, the Irish organization Experience Japan is holding a festival to celebrate it. Head to Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park on Sunday and enjoy traditional Japanese dance, performances, activities and food. Suitable for everybody in the family too!

 

All next week: Get techy at Dublin’s Tech Week 2018

If you’re still in a techy mood after the Dublin Tech Summit this week, then carry it on with the events and activities during Tech Week 2018. With a special emphasis on students, there’s a strong focus on skill learning, innovation and how technology affects each area of life. Great if you’ve got teenagers in the house.

 

On Wednesday: Get inspired at Dublin Design Night 2018

Interiors, photography, street art, illustration, graphic design, fashion; interested in any of that? You need to head to Dublin Design Night.

The Jameson cocktails only sweeten the deal.
