There are a plethora of gin festivals taking place in Dublin this summer, but one gin gala stands out among the rest. 

The Dublin Bay Gin Cruise sounds like complete weekend goals, so if you're not hitting up Taste of Dublin or The 1975 gig in Malahide Castle, this could be an option. 

The cruise involves an amazing gin workshop on board.

The private boat will coast around around Dublin Bay, while revellers indulge in crystal, strawberry and rosé gins.

Unfortunately, tickets for this epic endeavour are sold out, but there is still a chance to board the gin vessel.
