5 fabulous things to do in Ireland tomorrow for the Bank Holiday Monday

Rebecca O'Keeffe


So I know the weekend is almost over (sad) but we still have all day tomorrow to enjoy our freedom.

And because it’s a Bank Holiday, there are loads of fun things happening accross the country.

So if you feel like doing something different (instead of binge watching OITNB) keep reading honeys…

Rush Harbour Festival, Dublin. 

The Rush Harbour Festival is back this August Bank Holiday weekend and this year they have added outdoor movies to the festival! And with weather like this, talk about perfection.

For the Country and Western night they’ll also be having LINE DANCING, which honestly sounds gas. If you’re bopping around tomorrow looking for fun, get to Rush! Buy tickets here ladies. 

Skibbereen Arts Festival, Cork. 

The Skibbereen Arts Festival is a celebration of the rich cultural heritage of this beautiful part of the country. This is the tenth anniversary of the festival, and the programme promises to be one of the best yet.

As ever, the festival features a number of different disciplines in its line-up, with highlights this year including musical performances from Roseann Cash and Lunasa, and a staging of Declan O’Rourke’s Chronicles of the Great Famine song cycle.
