Whether it’s beer, brunch or ballet that tickles your fancy, we’ve got something that’s bound to keep you entertained before you head back into your working week.

Here are five of our top picks for the next two days!

Odessa Club and Restaurant is celebrating its tenth birthday and it wants you to join in the festivities! If you feel like munching on some tasty noms and being treated to the sounds of Irish electric band, Bantum, then book your tickets and make your way to Dame Court on Saturday at 1pm! Ease your way into the weekend with style!

Christmas Market
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the winter wonderland that is the St. Stephen’s Green Christmas Market, then what are you waiting for? Get into the festive spirit and feast on the sights, sounds and delicious smells that these charming little wooden stalls have to offer. If you don’t leave full of the joys of Christmas, we’ll eat our Santa hat.

If you want to experience one of the world’s most famous ballets, then grab a ticket to Swan Lake which is being performed in the stunning Gaeity theatre by Ballet Ireland this weekend. Hurry though! The last performance takes place tomorrow, so don’t miss out!

Fancy a night of beer and grub on Saturday? Vision Collector in Sunset Studios on Cecelia Street will be hosting an evening of food and drink when Donegal’s Kinnegar Brewing and BrewsWePlate team-up to provide the lovely people of Dublin with some much-deserved deliciousness. Limited tickets, so get booking!

A wander around some vintage markets is always a lovely way to spend an afternoon, so why not channel your inner fashionista and head on over to The Grand Social on Liffey Street who host the fantastic Ha’penny Flea Market every Saturday from noon until six. Chock full of quirky accessories and fashion finds, you’re bound to leave with something worth boasting about!
