Here’s what’s happening around the country this weekend
When it comes to planning your weekends in Ireland, you really are spoiled for choice. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Mastercard to bring you the ultimate event guide every weekend for the rest of the year. Your weekend starts here:
Did you know that Dublin has the largest collection of love letters to St Valentine and is home to his remains. Or did you know that as well as being the Patron Saint of engagement, St Valentine is also the Patron Saint of happy marriages, beekeepers, love, plague and epilepsy.
This year, to celebrate the day of love, the team behind Dublin.ie are turning Dublin into the capital city of love with a festival kicking off from February 9th-14th, celebrating the movies, music, literature, and much more associated with Valentine's Day.
If you've been tasked with planning what you and your significant other might do for Valentine's Day, The Sugar Club has you sorted with its screening of Quentin Tarantino's infamous 'True Romance'.
Starring Patricia Arquette and Christian Slater, this cult classic has everything for film fans who are after something different to the usual rom com this year!
If you're looking to nab yourself some bargains this winter, Galway is the place to be with its Flea Style Winter Market taking place on February 10th.
In a new venue in the Galway Arts Centre, you can head along from 11am to browse the wide variety of goods on offer.
Are you more excited about Pancake Tuesday than Valentine's Day? Well, this is one event any pancake fanatics won't want to miss.
Taking place from 10am-12pm in Brasserie on the Corner on February 13th, the Pancake Party is open to families, friends, couples, work colleagues, anyone! The funds raised on the day will go towards the work of Jigsaw Galway.
Head along to Limerick's Milk Market every Friday to mingle with the crowds and enjoy the wide range of fresh food, crafts, gifts on offer, as well as fresh air!
Markets are a great way to find unique offerings you might not find elsewhere so if you're after something special for your significant other for Valentine's Day or even just a gift to yourself, you know where to go!
If you're looking to exercise your creativity and do something different this weekend, you could try your hand at some creative writing and collage.
Pegged as a calming and imaginative pastime, the workshop will be led by two highly experienced creative writing specialists and everyone who attends will leave with a framed keepsake of their college. It's open to people with experience or complete beginners.
