6 of the best events happening around Ireland this weekend

From secret gigs to craft fairs, here are some of the very best events happening from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 July…

Bulmers Secret Orchard Gigs

Friday 28 July

Bulmers’ next Secret Orchard gig will take place in Dolans, Limerick on 28 July, headlined by Le Boom, and having seen this now-four piece at Beyond the Pale earlier this summer, I can confidently assure you that this is a live show you won’t want to miss. Fans can register now to attend all gigs for FREE by clicking here, and tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

Galway Arts Festival

Until Sunday 30 July

This multidisciplinary Galway International Arts Festival’s closing weekend programme includes Irish and international work of the highest quality, featuring theatre, music, visual arts, opera, street spectacle, dance, discussion and comedy. In 2022, over 600 performances took place in 32 venues over the course of 14 days, with an attendance in excess of 300,000, and some highlights of this coming weekend include All Tvvins, Bell X1, and Jenny Greene.

Live On The Harbour

Until Saturday 29 July

Live On The Harbour will be rolling into Dún Laoghaire Harbour for three whole nights of incredible music spanning three different genres of music, along with a whole lot of immense craic. Headliners across the weekend include the incredible Ibiza Orchestra, one of the UK’s most successful and influential rappers of all time Dizzee Rascal, and chart-topping artists such as Tinie Tempah and Jax Jones.

Samhradh Suppers

Saturday 29 July

Samhradh Suppers are a monthly series of immersive pop-up dinners celebrating the bountiful harvests of local producers, our innate connection to the land, and the bright bloom of summer evenings. Their second edition will be served in the octagon hall of The Common Knowledge Centre, and their talented chefs Ash and Sarah will be teaming up with St. Tola’s Farm in Clare, which Siobhán Ní Gháirbhith took the reins of in 1999.

Block Party Mural Event

Saturday 29 July

Atelier Now — supported by Kildare Village — are hosting a full day of live painting by 20 of Ireland’s leading street artists. Each artist has been invited to create a new mural for this special event. Expect a day bursting with colour, creativity and connection. There’ll be music from live DJ Willo Healy, and a food truck by Krewe on the day.

Cork Craft Month

Until Monday 31 July

Established in 2005, Cork Craft & Design brings together the very best of Cork’s unique and excellent Irish craft and design tradition. Across the weekend, there’s a broad range of events taking place that include stunning exhibitions, ‘Craft & Cuppa’ sessions, and workshops with experts of a myriad of disciplines.
