Beyond the notoriety of Dublin pubs, this Irish city is also known for the most attended street festivals in the country. A few of these festivals have become immensely popular, attracting visitors globally. Dublin is known as the festival capital of Ireland, a title it lives up to by having the most expressive and inclusive festivals in the country.
St Patrick’s Day And The Dublin Fringe Festival
St. Patrick’s Festival is a cultural and religious celebration. It takes place on what is traditionally known as the death day of Saint Patrick, March 17th. Despite being commemorated across Ireland, St Patrick’s Day celebrations are far more extensive in Dublin. It is, therefore, a no-brainer that many consider this event to be a Dublin Street Festival. Alcohol is a big part of this party. If you are in Dublin during St Patrick’s Day, be sure to visit a Dublin Pub to enjoy the ambience of the day.
Dublin Fringe Festival: Dublin Fringe is a curated, multi-disciplinary festival of the arts. It takes place over 16 days in September and draws roughly 30,000 spectators every year. This Dublin festival transforms the city’s streets into an explosion of talent performing in front of audiences from all over the world.
Eat The Streets Festival
This festival is a celebration of Dublin’s rich food diversity. This Street Festival starts with the growing of food earlier in the year, usually in March. It then ends in a 10-day long June festival. This Dublin Street festival aims to explore the city’s rich food heritage. The secondary objective of this event is to help cultivate the habit of growing food organically. Eat the Streets is an explosion of the smell, taste, and colours—a fusion of art and cuisine.
