What you doing for the Bank Holiday weekend?

Okay the weather forecast is not looking too good for the upcoming bank holiday weekend (or the rest of the summer by all accounts)!  So as there’s not much chance of sitting out and sunning yourself in a beer garden with a cold drink this long weekend, why not get out and about and check out the many events on in Dublin.

Forbidden Fruit Festival

You could always head along to the Forbidden Fruit Festival in Kilmainham, a 3 day multi-stage music and arts festival. Winner of the Best New Festival at the Irish Festival Awards for 2011, it has an impressive eclectic and alternative line-up for 2012, along with a new comedy tent and plenty of fashion, crafts and delicious food.

Tickets are still available starting at €49.50 and as the festival has teamed up with DePaul, you will also be supporting a worthwhile Irish charity.

To check it out for yourself, watch this youtube video
or visit their website

Bloom in the Park

In association with Bord Bia, Bloom, Ireland's largest gardening, food and family event, will take place in the Phoenix Park Dublin during the June bank holiday.
With kids going free and tickets starting from  €12, this is a great day out and fantastic value. With everything from show gardens to cookery demonstrations to fashion, Bloom in the Park was a runaway success last year and promises to be even better for 2012.

Bavaria City Racing

If you like the trill of fast cars, then the Bavaria City Race in City Centre will definitely be for you. This Sunday, Bavaria is bringing Formula 1 to the streets of Dublin!
It promises to be a spectacular display with Dakar trucks, Super League Formula, Indy Car, Formula 2, drifters and Formula 1 demonstrations just some of the highlights of the day.
Check out for all the details or watch the video below for a taster of what you can expect.


Flora Women’s Mini Marathon

Or if you prefer a slightly slower pace, why not head for city centre and cheer on the ladies running the Flora Women’s Mini Marathon this Monday.  This is always a great event with loads of money raised for numerous charities every year. Check out their website for more information.
