Dublin is most famous for the St Patrick’s Festival, which takes place around St Patrick’s Day (17th March), each year. However there are lots of other festivals spanning music, literature, film, theatre, culture, food and dance. If you can name it, we’ve probably got a festival for it. You can view upcoming festivals below or see our full What’s On listings.
