Things to do in Dublin (1-09-14 – 7-09-14)

Dublin Tiger Fringe

I hope you picnicers have all recovered from the weekend that was! This week promises to be another good one with the start of the… TIGER DUBLIN FRINGE! Yes, it’s the few weeks of the year where we get all the crazy people in Dublin and take them off the streets and put them into the theatres around the city. The results are generally fascinating. You’ll see things on stages that are weird and wonderful, and that you’ll see nowhere else.

Otherwise, there’s the usual mix of oddities around the city. The wonderful Dorothy Cross has a new exhibition in the Kerliln Gallery, there’s also Sounds Alive – Dublin Audio Festival form Sept 5th to 6th.  Check them out below.
