Have some fun in Dublin this weekend

Have some fun 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.

Cellinstallation, Part of Spike Cello Festival, Hugh Lane Gallery, Sunday 1.15 – 5pm – FREE

This free performance is part of a weekend of cello concerts dotted around the city. Most events cost but this one is free and goes on all afternoon. It\’s cello as you\’ve never seen it before so you can expect some surprises. In total there are eight cellists scheduled to perform. It will be interesting and if it doesn\’t float your boat, it\’s a great excuse the nicest gallery in the city.

Jazz Jam Session, The International Bar, Wicklow Street, Dublin 2 4.45 – 7.45pm – FREE

This session takes place downstairs in the well-known International Bar. Just around the corner from our city centre campus, this venue is a hive of musical activity and this relaxed jazz session is a nice way to ease yourself out of the hedonistic indulgences from the night before.
