Things To Do In Dublin (18-04-15 – 24-05-15)

Yes

The most important thing you can do this week is vote! It will be one of the biggest changes that this generation can make and something to be really proud of. The first country in the world to have voted in gay marriage. Decision of the people and not of a court or parliament. Just make sure you vote, because it won’t happen unless you do.

Another festival kicks into life this week with the Dublin Dance Festival running from the 19th to the 30th of May. It’s not the only show in town, as the International Literature Festival Dublin runs until May 24th, with some of the big name speakers in town this week.
