Good stuff in Dublin this weekend

Good stuff in Dublin this weekend. At City Language School English School Dublin we \’recommend culture\’ and we let our students know what’s going on in the great city (aka town). This week we have a look at three events that are happening near Dublin City Centre and further afield over the next few days.
