There is so much on in Dublin this weekend, we don’t know where to start

Dublin, even on its quiet days, is still one of the most exciting cities in the world to be in. Imagine, then, what it’s like on an eventful weekend? The next few days see no less than three city-wide festivals kick off in the capital, with drama, film and even podcasts covered. Dublin this weekend – is there anywhere better?


All weekend: Get dramatic at the Dublin Theatre Festival

Now in its 61st year, the Dublin Theatre Festival is 18 days of pure theatre magic. Bringing together international works, top Irish talent and some of the greatest works in history, it really lives up to its legacy as Europe’s longest running theatre festival. Its biggest highlight will definitely be Oscar nominee Ruth Negga starring in Hamlet at the Gate – tickets are sparse, so get on it now.

 

All weekend: Get educated at IFI Documentary Festival

 

The IFI is always a good shout for a Sunday, and with this weekend seeing its Documentary Festival come back around, all the more reason to head along. While there’s plenty of fantastic films to be seen, the real main attraction is the discussions and Q+A’s. If you’re an experienced film buff or just love a good chat about movies, this weekend will be brilliant.

All week long: Listen in at the Dublin Podcast Festival

HeadStuff, which is responsible for many of your favourite Irish podcasts (The Alison Spittle Show, MotherFoclóir and Juvenalia, to name a few), revolutionised the Irish podcast scene with its festival last year, and it’s back again for another round this autumn. Bringing huge international names (Adam Buxton and The Guilty Feminist are already sold out) together with some great homegrown talent, the events across the next few weeks are unmissable for a podcast lover.

This weekend: Get arty at Taproot Art’s What Pairs

Another week, another major Irish art talent exhibition. This week, it’s down to Sophie Murphy, founding director of Taproot Art, who has curated new show PAIRS around the power of dual relationships. Featuring works from Dublin-based artists Decoy, James Kirwan & illustrator Steve McCarthy and international treasures such as Jay Miriam (NYC), Miniature Tigers star Charlie Brand (LA), and Katarina Janeckova, the exhibition looks set to be very popular among the Irish art set. Its opening is Friday from 6pm to 9pm, but you can catch it all the way until October 6th.

 

This weekend: Catch the last of Life at the Edges 

 

No matter how far we stray, we always come back to the Science Gallery. Their summer-long exhibition Life at the Edges, which explores everything space-related, is coming to a close this weekend. So, if you haven’t already, pay a visit and get an insight into what life in space is really like.
