Things To Do In Dublin (13-04-15 – 19-04-15)

musictown

You are living in Musictown, and you may not event know it!  Go explore here. There’s also some free lunchtime gigs in the Hugh Lane you can check out here. There’s also the 12 Point Festival, with even more gigs around the city. Otherwise, there’s a tough choice on Saturday with Godspeed! and Julian Cope playing the same night. I think the druid will win out for me.

There’s a few new productions in the world of theatre, with previews of Hedda Gabler and The Man in the Woman’s Shoes at the Abbey. There’s also a preview of Glasslands in the IFI and the Lighthouse.
