The Lovin Dublin Guide To Having The Perfect Pride This Weekend
Just follow this nifty schedule and you're sorted!
It has been an amazing year so far for gay rights and equality in Ireland, so we've got plenty to celebrate this weekend at Pride!
We've drawn up an itinerary for Saturday, so you can have the perfect day filled with food, festivities, and fun! Y'all better get a good night's sleep on Friday night, because Saturday's going to be a busy day...
Kick things off in style with brunch at The Meeting House - they even have a special complimentary 'Pride Punch' cocktail with every meal - delish!
12pm - Merrion Square Pride Village
The parade will be ending up here later on but get ahead of the posse and stroll over after brunch! There will be plenty to see and do inside the park, with Hunt & Gather hosting they Love Shack complete with Morning Gloryville pillow fights, spoken word, face-painting, movie screenings, vintage clothes on sale and plenty more.
1.30pm - Dublin LGBTQ Pride Parade 2015
This kicks off at the Garden of Remembrance at 1.30pm, but you can catch it anywhere along the route you wish. If anyone wants to take part, just show up at the starting point around 12pm. This year's parade will be the largest ever LGBTQ parade in Irish history so it's definitely not to be missed!
2pm - Panti's All Day Street Party
Sure where would we be without Panti? Capel Street will come alive once things start winding down after the parade, and everybody knows it's the only place to do your pre-drinking for the night ahead.
Mother are taking over the larger location of the space behind the Tivoli Theatre (off Francis Street), complete with full bars, a cocktail bar, food vendors, sideshows, and more sequins and glitter imaginable. The queen herself, Ana Matronic, will be doing a DJ set alongside Crazy P Soundsystem, Kormac's Big Band, Le Galaxie DJs and plenty more. This will be an absolute belter of an evening, so grab your sparkles and get going!
