The World Cup kicks off this week, and there will be two camps, those who will be trying to catch every second, and those who will learn to hate their television. I guess this is aimed at the second camp as the others won’t be leaving their home!
There’s the Dublin Pride Festival which runs from June 14th to 29th. Dublin Garden Festival runs from June 13th to 15th. Bloomsday Festival runs from June 10th to 16th. The festival is extended this year, with much for events, so check it out. Taste of Dublin runs June 12-15th for some grub in a park!
Youbloom also kicks off, with some great free music, June 13th to 15th.
