Dublin Fringe Festival, 6th-21st September

This innovative festival celebrates all that’s new and exciting in the worlds of entertainment, theatre and dance. And even if you don’t go to a show, the unmistakable buzz the festival creates means you can soak it up in the streets and pubs of Dublin as you explore the city.


Oktoberfest, 18th-5th October

Beer lovers are in for a treat this autumn when the world famous Oktoberfest decamps from its Munich home to Georges Dock in Dublin. It’s not just the beer that’s coming either – traders are arriving to set up a German market packed with traditional crafts and food and there’ll even be some real Bavarian barmaids in traditional dress.

  2. Oooh, I love Dublin. My sister in law lives just outside Dublin with her family, and we went to visit them last year, but sadly didn’t get time to go into Dublin proper. The last time I was there was for her wedding 12 years ago, but I’d love to go back and you make it sound even more amazing than I remember!
