Summer has well and truly gone by now but Autumn is a great time to come and explore Dublin and there are loads of things happening. Don’t believe us? Then take a look at our top 9 things for you to do in October:

The Full Monty

Simon Beaufoy’s brilliant musical stage play came from one of the most admired British movies ever. The Full Monty returns to the Gaiety Theatre (just around the corner from the hotel) from October 1st to 6th.

Robert Plant and Van Morrison

Two of the greatest musicians of their generation are getting together just to please you. It all happens at Bluesfest in the 3Arena on October 28th.

Heineken Champions Cup – Leinster Rugby v Wasps

The Heineken Cup, or whatever they call it this year, is back and reigning champions Leinster will take on London giants and former champions Wasps in the RDS on October 12th. Even if you have only a passing interest in rugby, try to catch this Heineken Champions Cup match – it’ll be sublime.

Guinness PRO14 Leinster Rugby v Munster Rugby

Arguably the biggest game of the month, Leinster verses Munster in the Guinness PRO14 in the Aviva Stadium (quite close to us here at the hotel).
