Things To Do In Dublin (14-08-15 – 20-09-15)


Let’s just say, it’s a little mad out there. If you’re not exhausting enough by all this Fringing, then lets just throw Culture night this Friday on top of it, as well as all the normal things on in the city. It’s too much people, batten down the hatches and prepare for the madness. You can also throw the All Ireland Football Final and the start of the Rugby world up in there for good measure…
