Dublin Event Guide (15-2-16 – 21-2-16)

screen-shot-2016-01-29-at-182732-1024x505

The big event in town this week is the Audi Dublin International Film Festival. Yes, that name will take some getting used to, but it’s the same show, with movies, interviews and a whole lot of stars! It runs from the 18th to the 28th of Feb, with a huge amount of events on around the city.

There’s also the Smock Alley – Scene and Heard Festival of New Work, which should be a lot of fun. There’s also the Lime Tree Bower in the Project, along with Whack!! A slow week for music, but we’d recommend Ozric Tentacles, the Avant Gardai and Shuggie Otis.

If you’re close to the RHA the Mick O’Dea exhibition is pretty damn cool! The Nick Miller in IMMA also comes highly recommended.
