Dublin Event Guide (22-08-16 – 28-08-16)

Dalkey-Lobster-Fest620372

Our very own lovely girl competition kicks off this week with the Rose of Tralee International Festival 2016. I suggest you studiously ignore it! Some small festivals around Dublin include the Harbour to Hotspot – Roots Revival Festival 2016 and the Dalkey Lobster Festival 2016.

Some good gigs this week with John Murry, Warpaint and Lloyd Cole, so a few to choose from. There’s also a few new theatre productions with Buridan’s Ass, The Belly Button Girl, As You Like it and IGNITE: Youth Theatre Festival.
