Things To Do In Dublin (25-05-15 – 31-05-15)

Forbidden Fruit

I guess it’s officially summer? This week is packed with festivals and events. This week there’s the Foo Fighters at Slaine and Forbidden Fruit, along with the Life Festival in Belvedere House. The wonderful Down With Jazz Festival returns to meeting House Square. There’s also Bloom Festival at the Phoenix Park. Another quirky one is the Butoh Festival Dublin from the 26th to the 31st. The Dublin Dance Festival continues until the 30th of May. A little further afield, the Carlow Arts Festival runs from the 29th until the 7th of June.
