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. That's why Dublin Pride 2022 is going to be such a huge deal this year; they've got a lot of missed time to make up for. 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.
