No plans for the Bank Holiday weekend? We’ve got you sorted

The long weekend is just around the corner and with so many amazing events due to take place around Dublin, staying in is not an option. 

Here are our top five picks.

Ebow Gallery – ‘Bowie by Duffy’ photography show

Calling all Bowie fans, this one’s for you.

The Ebow gallery will open its doors to the public this Saturday for their first show in five years.

Bowie by Duffy has been described as ‘A celebration of the dynamic relationship between two of the century’s greatest artistic innovators.’

The show gives an insight into the relationship between photographer Brian Duffy and David Bowie. Brian snapped many iconic photos of the legendary artist, including the Aladdin Sane album cover.

Curated by Brian’s son, Chris Duffy, the show features a host of rare and previously unreleased images

Bowie by Duffy will run for three weeks in the Ebow gallery Castle Street, Dublin 2, and entry is free.

Cruinniú na Cásca

A nationwide arts and culture festival is coming to Ireland this Easter Monday and it's completely free. 

Cruinniú na Cásca, a Creative Ireland initiative is a free public event, taking place in cities and town across the country on Easter Monday.

Four zones across Dublin’s city centre will come alive between 11am and 6pm with celebrations of contemporary culture and creativity through live music, art workshops, talks and tastings.

Some highlights of festival include live performances from The Academic and Jack O’Rourke in Smithfield square along with special screenings of The Young Offenders and Room in the Lighthouse Cinema.

But if that's not your thing why not try a slam poetry workshop, learn how to DJ with RTÉ Pulse or stop by the science gallery and meet their pet robot?

Although all the music, performance and orchestral events are free of charge, event organisers recommend the talks, film-screenings, workshops be pre-booked to avoid disappointment.

Back to the Heart outdoor yoga, St. Stephen's Green Park

What better way to cure a sore head than some Sunday morning yoga? 

Head down to St. Stephens Green Park this Sunday (and every Sunday) for a communal outdoor yoga session followed by a picnic. 

Don't worry if you don't own a yoga mat, a beach towel will do the same job.

So g'wan, give your mind and body some love this weekend. Who knows, you might even make a few friends while you're at it. 

The session runs from 11.15am – 12.30pm and a minimum donation of €5.00 is required to participate.
