Things To Do In Dublin (21-09-15 – 27-09-15)

The Fringe is over, so finally time to relax and take it easy, right? right?

The Dublin Theatre Festival kicks off this week and runs from the 24th to the 11th of October, so lots to explore in that one. There’s also a IFI Documentary Festival 2015 with runs from the 23rd to the 27th, so I guess it’s another busy one! Go explore below…

There’s also the Dublin Festival of History 2015 from the 25th September – 10th October and the best part is many of these events are free!
