Proms on the Pier – August 29-30 – Dun Laoighaire Harbour


Proms on the Pier – Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th August. Dun Laoighre Harbour, Dun Laoighaire, Co. Dublin. – Preview by Frances Winston

Dun Laoighaire Pier has always been a popular attraction in the summertime. With wonderful local eateries and watering holes many people hit it for family days out once the weather gets milder and this year there is an added attraction. For the first time ever there will be Proms on the Pier. Over the weekend of 29th and 30th August there will be five hours of world class music daily.

In an intimate fully seated venue music fans are in for a real treat as Phil Coulter and the Prom’s Party orchestra play host to singers such as Ultravox’s Midge Ure, Eurovision superstar Johnny Logan, X Factors Melanie McCabe and the legendary 10CC.

Not your average music festival this will feature a champagne tent no less and fully reserved seating for a more refined experience. The show commences at 4.30pm each day and ends at 10.30pm and the venue is in such close proximity to the DART and buses that it is supremely accessible.

With a capacity of 5,000 the atmosphere promises to be electric and there really is something for everyone on the bill. The inaugural year of any event is always a tricky one but from the looks of it this could become a much loved annual occasion. Personally I can’t wait. Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.ie or Promsonthepier.ie
