Dublin Event Guide (16-05-16 – 22-05-16)

Dance, Dance, Dance… yes, it’s that time of year again when the dancers descend on Dublin, en masse. The Dublin Dance Festival runs from the 17th to the 28th.

If you’re feeling a bit more bookish, then there’s a second Festival around with the International Literature Festival Dublin 2016 which runs from the 21st until the 29th.

Fear not though, as there’s a full swing of new theatre, with Another Billy Conn at the New Theatre (May 16th – May 21st), Harold Pinter: Theatre Of Menace (May 21 & 22) and From Eden in Bewleys Cafe Theatre among others.

The Patrick Hennessy Exhibition at IMMA is worth checking out. The RHA Annual Exhibition is in full swing.
