To ensure you don’t waste the glorious sunny season, we’ve rounded up some of the very best events on the calendar over the next few months. So without further ado: on your mark… get set… BOOK!
Suitable for all ages and abilities, you only need to bring a mat along to take part in one of these outdoor yoga classes which are happening throughout July. Depending on the date, the yoga classes will take place in Merrion Square, Pearse Square, Dartmouth Square and St Anne’s Park.
Head to the Irish Whiskey Museum with Ballyvolane Spirits and savour a gin that’s been carefully handcrafted using whey alcohol sourced from the farmers of Ballyvolane, Co. Cork. You’ll be greeted with a Bertha’s & Tonic on arrival before enjoying a delicious Ballyvolane Rhubarb Martini. If you really wanted to make a night of it you can also book yourself in for a 2-course early bird in The Riddler before the tasting.

Come one, come all to the street food market that boasts music, demos, food competitions, workshops, The Bernard Shaw Flea Market and more than 50 food areas to enjoy.

If you love meat, you cannot miss Europe’s biggest BBQ festival in Herbert Park. More than 20 restaurants will set up stalls for the event and they’ll all be adhering to one simple rule: everything must be cooked using using natural charcoal or wood fires only — no gas or electricity allowed!
The spectacular touring show is set to share its magic with the people of Dublin at the National Concert Hall. Expect a collection of short films celebrating the divers, surfers and oceanographers who get up close and personal with awe-inspiring marine life and the majesty of crashing waves.
