Dublin Event Guide (18-07-16 – 24-07-16)

Another Summer week where you should really be outside enjoying the fresh air! If you’re going to ignore this worthwhile advice, we’ve a few recommendations for you. There’s The Hellfire Squad at the Project Arts Centre along with Invitation to a Journey. There’s also If Walls Could Talk at the New Theatre.

In the world of Music, there’s the return of Belly, along with August Wells at the Workman’s Club and Dylan Tighe at the Grand Social. If you’re looking for a festival, we’d recommend KnockanStockan 2016.

The Festival of Curiosity 2016 is Dublin’s International Festival of Science, Arts, Design & Technology and it runs from the 21st to the 24th. There’s the best of Music on Film with Films of Note Festival all week at the Sugar Club. If you feel like a road trip, there’s the Galway Arts Festival, which sounds like a lot of fun.

It’s the last week of the Patrick Hennessy Exhibition at IMMA, so get in there if you can.
