Things To Do In Dublin (29-12-14 – 4-01-15)

Christmas is pretty much done, and now it’s on to New Years! In particular, there’s the New Year’s Festival, which runs from the 30th to the 1st, and features a variety of events in Music, Art, Spoken Word and more.

There’s also the First Fortnight festival which kicks off on the 1st, and is another wide ranging festival with Music, Theatre, Film and more. We have a preview of the New Year’s Festival here, and a piece on the Spoken Word Festival here. Our preview of the First Fortnight Festival is here. Yes, it’s all kicking off in Dublin…

There’s also some good Irish Music on in Dublin with Kodaline, James Vincent Mcmorrow, Walking On Cars, Le Galaxie and the Riptide Movement, to name but a few. We’d also recommend the Hootenanny
St. Patrick’s Hospital on Jan 3rd. Whatever you do, don’t miss the Trailbalzers on January 1st in Christ Church.
