Top Things To Do This Weekend (19 – 21 March)

We are already half way through March. Mother’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day have already passed us by and before we know it we’ll be celebrating Easter! Although these holidays are different this year, acknowledging and celebrating even the small things can help to bring some relaxation and positivity back into our lives. These top things to do have been chosen to help feed your mind, body and soul this weekend.
1) Watch Druid Theatre’s Production of The Cherry Orchard on YouTube

Directed by Garry Hynes, the production will be available to audiences around the world, free to view for a limited period. A play about land, legacy and the struggle between tradition and change, The Cherry Orchard is presented as part of SEODA, Culture Ireland’s free online festival of Irish arts. The play will premiere on Culture Ireland’s YouTube channel on Friday 19 March at 8pm GMT. Don’t worry if you miss it – the free stream will be accessible for 36 hours, until Sunday 21 March at 8am GMT.

2) Discover Some New Irish Authors

Ireland, “the land of saints and scholars” is famous for its talented writers. From Oscar Wilde to Sally Rooney and everything in between, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to great literature. The Cúirt International Festival of Literature (which brings readers and writers together to tell stories, share new perspectives and celebrate writing in all forms) have just announced their 2021 programme “exploring how we connect with each other, landscape and history in a changed world as well as a series of essential conversations for Ireland at this time”.

3) Spring Clean

As we approach the warmer summer months, now is the perfect time to spring clean your closet and freshen up your wardrobe. Whether you want to make room for new purchases or free up some storage space, there are lots of helpful hints and tips on the internet to make your space something Marie Kondo would be proud of. You can even earn back a bit of money in the process by selling any unwanted but good-as-new items online through platforms like Depop or Vinted.



4) Try Some Dance Workouts

Walks, walks and more walks have been a staple of lockdown exercise routines but sometimes it’s good to shake things up. Why not mix it up this weekend by trying a dance workout? Blast your favourite tunes, throw on some leg warmers if you dare and have some fun. Depending on the intensity level, you can simply move your body and shake off some negative lockdown vibes or get in a proper HIIT workout.
