4 events for... making the most of the May Bank Holiday weekend

Can there be a Bank Holiday weekend every month, please?

IT’S THE FIRST full week back at work since the four-day Easter weekend… and there’s already another Bank Holiday on the way.

And if you’re stuck for ideas about what to do, fear not because we’ve got you sorted. 

From a silent disco to a spiritual tour, here are four events that will help you make the most of the three-day weekend…

1. Silent Disco Adventure

When: Saturday 4 May

Where: The Wild Duck Dublin, 17-20 Sycamore St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

If you’re looking for something different to do and don’t mind being on the receiving end of a few questionable stares, this event might be for you. Attendees will each be given a headset to wear while dancing through the streets of Dublin city – but only you can hear the music.

2. Jumpin’ & Brunchin’

When: Sunday 5 May

Where: NoLita, 64 South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2

Dig into brunch at NoLita to the soundtrack of the best R&B and pop tunes from the last three decades for a Sunday meal unlike any other. Tickets are €15 and include brunch and a cocktail.

3. Hidden Dublin: Northside Ghost Walking Tour

When: Friday 3 and Sunday 5 May

Where: The Church, Mary St, Dublin 1

Take a tour through one of the oldest parts of Dublin which has a “rich haunted history” and discover the site of a former monastic settlement, plus hear the story of Lord Norbury, known as ‘the Hanging Judge.’ Don’t blame us if you can’t sleep afterwards.

4. Bealtaine Spiritual Tour of Uisneach

When: Monday 6 May

Where: Hill of Uisneach, Rathnew, Loughnavalley, Co Westmeath

Finish the Bank Holiday weekend on a high note by going on a two-hour tour of Uisneach, also known as “the sacred centre of Ireland.” Take a trip back in time as you learn about the gods and goddesses buried there,  and unwind through meditation, visualisation and energy work.
