As the weather improves so does the general mood of Dublin. Smiles are replacing woolly scarves and hats and the rain is just that little bit warmer. We’re kidding.
March is a great month in which to visit our beautiful home and here are some of the things we suggest you do when you get here:
1. Legally Blonde
This fantastic musical is coming back to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from March 5th to the 10th. The stage version of the cult film was written by Laurence O’Keefe, Nell Benjamin and Heather Hach and it’s got Tony nominations and won Laurence Olivier awards, including Best New Musical. Legally Blonde tickets start from €20.
2. Romeo & Juliet with the Royal Moscow Ballet
Here it is: The world’s greatest love story told through the incredible dance and music of the Royal Moscow Ballet. They’ll be here for one night only, on March 10th, at The Helix in Dublin City University. Every lover of dance and every ballet fan should go, so try here for Romeo & Juliet tickets.
3. Paloma Faith
Love her or loathe her, you’ve got to take your hat off to pop sensation Paloma Faith. Especially when she sings Only Love Can Hurt Like This which she will at the 3Arena on March 24th this year. If you’re lucky you might pick up Paloma Faith tickets but if not, have a word with one of our concierges. Sometimes, just sometimes, they can perform miracles for our guests.
4. Flight of the Conchords
These whacky, off-beat, genius, Grammy-award-winning New Zealanders are coming to Dublin’s 3Arena on Sunday March 25th for one show. If you haven’t seen their TV show Flight of the Conchords then check it out right now. Then go get your Flight of the Conchords tickets.
5. Sam Smith
He’s back: Sam Smith is bringing his biggest tour to date to Dublin’s 3Arena on March 30th with some special guests. If you’re lucky you might pick up Sam Smith tickets or, as a last resort, ask you-know-who in the lobby.
March is a musical marvel for travelling artists. We’ve got Michael McDonald, Niall Horan, Stereophonics, Aslan, The Stunning, Randy Newman, Joan Baez and BellX1 just to name a few.
7. Little Museum Of Dublin
Yes, this is back on our list because at the end of March they have a new exhibition called ‘What’s She Doing Here?‘ – a photographic exhibit of women at work in male-dominated careers 1918-2018. There’s a very good reason why this is one of Dublin’s top attractions on TripAdvisor: It’s brilliant.
March is heavy on music but there’s a lot of sport too, including the conclusion of the Six Nations Rugby Championship with Ireland v Scotland on March 10th and, as ever, our biggest day of the year: St Patrick’s Day 2018.
