Things to do in Dublin this week (7-10-13 to 13-10-13)

This is the last week of the Dublin Theatre Festival. Yup, we’re almost there with the madness of festival season, so make the most of the last few remaining moments. There’s also a new German Film Festival in the IFI Kinofest from the 10th to the 13th of Oct.



If you’ve ignored the Dublin Theatre Festival  and were intending to get to a couple, well, it’s last chance saloon. Choose wisely from the list below. I’d always recommend going to the international shows, so the Project has a couple to see this week.
