Festival Time!

A host of free events for culture buffs this September and October.


Life, Visit

Autumn days are almost upon us, and that typically means a host of great cultural events taking place across the city.

Culture Night takes place on Friday 18th September and, in keeping with the spirit of 2020, it’s set to be an appropriately socially distanced affair this year. Nevertheless it promises to be a magical night. Explore Dublin from 5pm till late with access to many of the city’s cultural jewels and attractions and plenty of colour on the city’s streets.

You’ll find a wealth of great cultural offers right here in The Liberties & Historic Quarter with participation from St Patrick’s Cathedral, Marsh’s Library, Dublin Castle, St James’s Church, Guinness Storehouse and much more. Check out further details at www.culturenight.ie.

The Dublin Festival of History also returns this year, even if things may look a little different.  This year’s festival will take place between 11th September – 4th October with a diverse range of free online talks, guided walks, and events, all subject to public health guidelines.  You can find the full programme of events at www.dublinfestivalofhistory.ie.

And mark your calendars for the 15th Open House Dublin running from 8th – 11th October. This extraordinary year, Open House Dublin will celebrate the resilience, exceptional potential and talent in architecture and urban design within our city and nation. More details of the programme shortly at www.openhousedublin.com.
