Dublin’s ascension to ‘tourist hot spot’ over the last decade has meant great things, not only for the tourists but the city’s economy. But with so much going on, sometimes you need a helping hand to figure out just what to do. Luckily, this handpicked selection of Dublin events will narrow down the attractions for you.
First thing’s first, though, and a warm bed needs to be sorted. Travelodge hotels in Dublin offer great value considering all that the city has to offer, and can be found in a number of locations. That’s the first tip out of the way!
Foodies pay attentions, Europe’s premiere food festival is coming this summer and it’s not to be missed! The 13th – 16th June 2013 will see some of some of the tastiest dishes prepared by some of the world’s most famous chef available for all to try. Interested in making it yourself? Master classes can give you those knife skills you’ve been honing, and teach you how to make delicious dishes at home. And it’s not just the beautiful cuisine found locally, global foods like ‘Taste Of Thailand’ give you the perfect opportunity to swell your pallet. Bon Appetite!
YouBloom’s focus is new music, and it’s dedicated to championing up and coming artists, so what better way to catch the next biggest star for only €15? Sound unlikely? Well with over 50 artists playing, the odds are you’ll be there when a superstar breaks their career. As music legend Bob Geldof said, “youbloom@Dublin is an amazing opportunity for independent bands/artists and has the potential to become Dublin’s SouthbySouthWest”.
10 Days In Dublin Festival
This eclectic festival really has something for everyone, with music, comedy, visual art, theatre, spoken word, comedy and film. What’s more, this is a new and exciting festival, just entering its third year, and sure to double in size again, as it has already. Visit the website and take a look at the program to see what (not if) anything takes your fancy.
These three events should keep you well and truly occupied, but if you don’t fancy heading to Dublin for a particular gig or festival, then you can simply enjoy the first class countryside, the unrivalled choice of pubs and the infamously welcoming attitude of the locals.
