So we’re a week and a bit into the Fringe Festival and already most of us are suffering from nervous exhaustion! There’s almost a complete change of events, so plenty of new opportunities to see something new! And as if it’s not enough, there’s also a little something called Culture Night next Friday. Yes, the night the arts in Dublin go a little bit crazy and throw their doors open to all and sundry. It’s well worth exploring, so check out the full list of events here. We did a full list of musical events in Dublin and around the country here.
The Fringe Festival continues to dominate, and so far it’s been really impressive. It’s generally a mixed bag, but this year it’s remarkably consistent… It’s also your last chance to see old friends Major B and Streetcar. You can get our latest reviews here.
