The eclectic programme includes tours of many of the area’s most historic sights and buildings such as the cathedrals and Kilmainham Gaol, music and performance across parks and local venues, a special Twilight Flea Market at The Digital Hub, the chance to experience all the competitive fun of the Trinity Regatta on the Liffey at Islandbridge, the great outdoors of the Phoenix Park and much more.

This year, the festival will also commemorate 100 years since the end of the Irish Civil War with a unique festival programming strand that reflects upon this emotional milestone in Irish history.

All events are FREE however ticket booking may be required and the Festival team ask that, as some events have strict capacity you only book in for events you can attend. And if you cannot make the event anymore, please cancel your ticket, or get in touch so we can give the ticket to someone else!
