Five Deadly Things To Do In Dublin This Week


We know how tempting it is to go into hibernation from Monday to Friday but it would be a mistake, as you’d miss some of the best events going on in Dublin.

There’s a host of weird, wild and wondering gatherings taking place in our fair city each week and we’ve made it our mission to make sure that you’re aware of them.

Try these on for size…

Check out the St Patrick’s Festival

Annalise Murphy will lead this Friday’s parade but what you might not know is that there are a whole host of events taking place this week for the St Patrick’s Festival. It runs from Thursday to Sunday and include everything from walking tours and exhibitions to music and cinema screenings. See the full programme here.
