5 Things to Do With the Rest of Your Bank Holiday Weekend

by Michelle Heffernan

Bank Holiday Waterford

As I write there are approximately thirty hours remaining in this October Bank Holiday weekend. That’s plenty of time to overdose on the poison of your choice, and start off November with a fresh dose of facebook checkins and seriously bad selfies. There’s so much still to do in Waterford this weekend! Here’s my top 5 ways to spend the rest of your bank holiday, your bank account and your slowly fading youth.


  1. Techno Techno Techno

Bank Holiday Waterford

You’re not hard core unless you live hard core. It’s go hard or go home tonight at Factory where Republik present Ben Klock, German Techno artist, DJ and record label owner with a serious rep on the decks. Tickets online are selling out fast, but there will be a limited number available on the door!Doors 10pm


  1. Having Hallowe’en on Wednesday is no fun

  1. Imagine Festival Vintners Trail

The Imagine Festival has been running all week, bringing music, art and even an apocalyptic blaa fight to Waterford. Tonight it closes with the Hallowe’en Vintners Trail. Baya the Storyteller will be visiting Jordan’s Bar this evening for a Samhain themed story of Innana’s Descent. Later she will move to Phil Grimes Bar, to weave the story of the “Silver Hands”.
