The first proper Dublin Pride since 2019.

 

As with most events and festivals, Pride was unable to go ahead in its full glory the past couple of years due to the pandemic.

If you need a little inspo or direction on how to spend it, we've compiled a list of some of our favourite events and parties going on this weekend in honour of Pride.
