Yes it may be freezing, but there’s still plenty to do in Dublin this weekend

Yes, it’s Baltic. Yes, leaving the house to do any activity other than Netflix binging in a blanket is probably not what you want to do right now. But there is a whole world out there in the cold, and there’s plenty to see and do this weekend if you fancy venturing into it. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


All weekend: Celebrate at Chinese New Year

Getting out of the dreariness that is January means that we get to celebrate the new year all over again — Chinese New Year, that is. Today marks the beginning of the two-week long festival, which will stage events around the city celebrating Chinese culture and tradition in honour of the new year. There are art exhibitions, children’s workshops, movie screenings, and, of course, plenty of events for the Asian food lover. Check out their website for info on all of the events (many of which are free).

 

Saturday: Cheer on the lads at Ireland vs England in the Six Nations

Granted, getting actual tickets for the match will be like finding a needle in a haystack at this stage, but the atmosphere will be electric no matter where you go in the city. Head to your local, go into town for a taste of the electricity, or just grab some friends and family round to the house to watch. If it’s anything like Ireland’s performance against New Zealand back in November, we’re in for a brilliant match.

Monday: Invest in Irish design at Designers in the City

If your 2019 resolution has been to invest in more sustainable shopping, you’re in luck — there have been loads of great events and initiatives around the city already in 2019 encouraging more interest in Irish design and shopping responsibly. One of the most exciting is taking place on Monday — Designers in the City is an opportunity for local designers to showcase their work, while interested shoppers can come in and peruse with a cocktail in hand. It’s a great way to link up the city’s fashion enthusiasts, and best of all, it’s free to attend.
