Things to do in Dublin this week (13-1-14 – 19-1-14)

We bid fond farewell to the first festival of the year, First Fortnight Festival will be back next year, with some luck. So what of this week? What’s in store for us on an average week in January. There must be something, right? Things are starting to get back to normal to be honest, so lots to do. Top tips for the week include 65daysofstatic at the Academy and Macbeth at Smock Alley. There’s also a Big Lebowski dress up party at the Lighthouse this Friday!
