Dublin Event Guide (19-09-16 – 25-09-16)

Week 1 of the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival has been fairly epic, so Week 2 has a lot to live up to! With a near total turn around of events, we’re back to square one. Other festivals we’d recommend include Canalaphonic which is a two day festival around Portobello running from the 23-24th of Sept. The IFI Documentary Festival 2016 runs from the 22nd to the 25th and is always pretty fab.

On the music end of things, we’d recommend Miss Grace Jones (who has just announced a second night) and also Bleed (again in the Fringe Festival). There’s lots of other events on around the city, so go explore…

Some will say Grace Jones is the only show worth seeing in town, but I’d happily recommend Bleed by Bottlenote in the Fringe with takes place in a bruised and battered building on North Great George’s Street. They had a similar event last year and it was one of the highlights of the festival.
