Preparing for the Bank Holiday with

Another Bank Holiday weekend is looming and it feels like the whole of Dublin are impatiently sitting at the edge of their seats waiting for the home time whistle to blow announcing the beginning of the extended weekend.


Plans are being etched and rendezvous arranged as the countdown looms! Traditionally bank holiday Fridays in Dublin are like a mass exodus as people take to the motorways to escape the capital city for the 3 days, and no doubt with the secondary schools breaking up for the summer today, this will certainly be the case. There are however so many various festivals and events happening across the city that one might be tempted to staycate at home in the Pale this weekend, many of which are taking place outdoors making the most of this rare yet glorious weather.



Bloom in the Park, in association with Bord Bia, kicked off in the Phoenix Park yesterday attracting record breaking numbers for their opening day.With the sun attracting the masses and the various artisan food markets, show gardens, music, gardening tips and workshops and endless family fun, there is something for everyone at Bloom and with kids going free it makes it a fun filled day out for all the family. 



Meanwhile, close by in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham Forbidden Fruit gets underway this Saturday and Sunday with over 100 acts taking to the four stages and the comedy tent. Acts include legendary Primal Scream and Chic along with heavy hitters Kasabian and many many more. With full weekend tickets priced at only €99.50 Forbidden Fruit is an attractive alternative to the bigger music festivals to take place throughout the summer. 



In keeping with the festival buzz in the city this weekend, Dublin Port River Fest also takes place in, yes - you guessed it..... Dublin Port! With boat racing on the Liffey, markets, funfairs and family entertainment, not to mention the arrival of 6 Tall ships on Saturday and Sunday this free family festival is sure to draw a crowd in the picturesque setting of our city's waterways.



Fabulous females are flocking to the RDS this weekend for the 10th Women's World exhibition celebrating fashion, beauty, health, technology, cooking and anything really these glamorous girls might be in to. With catwalk shows and cooking demonstrations visitors can expect to be kept busy throughout the day with a plateau of activities to try out.


In keeping with all things girl power, the Flora Women's Mini Marathon also takes place this bank holiday. 40,000 energetic ladies will take to the streets of Dublin running 10k to raise much needed funds for hundreds of charities. Women travel from all over the country each year to participate in what has proven to be an extremely popular event.



So there you have it folks, just a little taster of some of the things Dublin's fair city has to offer this weekend. Come Tuesday it will all be over and it's back to business as usual. I'm sure there'll be a lot of relieved event organisers though as we often forget the hard work in planning and preparation that goes into staging these fantastic events. Indeed, our couriers have been flat out through out the week moving goods around the city for these events and exhibitors and no doubt will continue to do so over the weekend. Most people don't realise that our couriers continue to work all weekend long even though the office is closed. If you think you may be in need of a courier over a weekend just give us a call on 1800 303 500 any Friday and we can provide you with the out of hours contact details.


What ever you get up to this weekend, all of us here at Clickacourier HQ hope you have a whale of a time doing it! Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend.
