Not heading to Electric Picnic this weekend and looking for something else to do instead? We've teamed up with Dublin Gazette to bring you the best events on in the city over the coming days.
The All Ireland Football Final: Dublin V Tyrone - Sunday
Dublin face Tyrone in this year's All Ireland Senior Football Championship on Sunday. The Boys in Blue are aiming for four in a row.
The game gets underway at 3:30pm.
The Liffey Swim – Saturday
Lord Mayor Nial Ring is set to start the 99th Dublin City Liffey Swim this Saturday. The men’s race will set off at 3pm, with the women’s race beginning at 4:30pm. More than 500 swimmers are expected to take part in the races. Launching the 2018 swim, Cllr Ring said: “Dublin City Council’s involvement in the Liffey Swim goes back to the very first event in 1920, which was organised by Dublin Corporation employee, Bernard Fagan and won by JJ Kennedy. “Since then, it has grown into Ireland’s most prestigious open sea race and is celebrated in Jack B Yeats’ award-winning painting, The Liffey Swim.” Presentation of the prestigious Liffey Cups will take place in the grounds of the Custom House after the last race finishes at approximately 5pm.
Ireland v Northern Ireland, Tallaght Stadium – Friday
The Republic of Ireland's Women's Senior Team will take on Northern Ireland in their last game of Group 3 of the qualifiers for the FIFA 2019 Women's World Cup. The Republic started the campaign really brightly with an amazing draw away against the European Champions Netherlands and wins against both Slovakia and Northern Ireland on the road. Two narrow defeats against a strong Norwegian team left the Girls in Green out of contention, but there is still pride – and bragging rights – to play for in this hotly contested derby match. Adult tickets costing just €5 and under-18s going free.
India Day, Farmleigh House – Sunday
Ireland India Council will host the fourth India Day in Farmleigh Gardens, Phoenix Park. Everyone is welcome to join this fantastic day to commemorate India's Independence and Irish – Indian friendship. There will be a number of Indian and World Cultural activities.
