5 fab things to do in Dublin for the May Bank Holiday weekend

Long weekends are our favourite weekends. Not only do we get three days off work, but there's also so much time to squeeze in trips and activities.

And this May Bank Holiday will certainly not disappoint with markets, music, and more.

Here are five fab things to do this weekend:

1. Designer Mart, Cow's Lane

If you have a quirky and unusual style then you'll love the Designer Mart in Temple Barm which opens on Saturday from 10am – 5pm.

All made by Irish designers, you can get your hands on photography, paintings, handcrafted bags, sculptures, jewellery and more.

You can always trust Whelan's to bring you some great gigs on a Bank Holiday, but this one will seriously bring out the nostalgia in you.

Wheatus are performing in the venue on Monday night at 8pm and tickets are a total steal at €18.
