Festivals

Dublin Event Guide (27-3-17 – 2-4-17)

Sure isn’t there a grand stretch in the evening? Well, there is, there’s an extra hour and no excuse for you to sit home!

Some really good gigs this week with Haley Bonar (The Workman’s Club), Car Seat Headrest (Academy), Thundercat (Vicar st.), Jens Lekman (Whelan’s), Run The Jewels (The Olympia Theatre) and a few more besides. Seriously, that’s a lot of great music.

Fishamble’s Pat Kinevane Trilogy kicks off at the Abbey, The Beauty Queen of Leenane is back at the Gaiety and Blood Brothers at the Bord Gais. Fizzy Drinks with Two Straws is at the New Theatre.

If you’re looking for a festival, how about the Five Lamps Arts Festival?

The IMMA Collection Freud Project is a must see! National Gallery of Ireland has the ‘Beyond Caravaggio‘ until 14th May. Book now or feel awful silly!
