Things to do in Dublin; Hunter's Weekend Picks!
No complaints about nothing to do this weekend, because it’s chocka, especially for sports fans. All Ireland football final will be shown on a big screen in Smithfield and the Rugby World Cup starts this evening, but if sports aren’t your thing there’s also one of our favourite annual events taking place this evening; Culture Night! Event: Culture Night – Country Wide Always feels like there's something special in the air on this particular night, when thousands of ordinary Dubliners and tourists alike come out in their droves to appreciate all we've got to offer culturally in this fair city. More than 3,000 free events are happening around the country not just Dublin, as part of the 10th annual Culture Night. People are advised to visit CultureNight.ie for details of events in their local area but some that grabbed our attention include free yoga classes from 4pm in Dublin Buddhist Centre, a sneak peak behind the doors of the Freemasons’ Hall (home to the secretive Grand Lodge of Ireland) from 5pm to 11pm and Airbnb will be celebrating the cultural depth of their Dublin host community with wine, food music and art in their European head quarters. Just check the website before you start off on your nights journey. Music: No Boundaries - The Academy No Boundaries: Humans Helping Humans is a joint effort by the Irish music community to raise funds for for refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East and in particular the Irish Red Cross Migration Appeal. Gig takes place this Friday 18th September 2015 in The Academy and will be hosted by Paul McLoone and comedian Anne Gildea. Music will be provided by Kelly Anne Byrne, Le Galaxie, Kormac Live and lots more. It's 15 quid in and goes to a great cause!
