We start a new decade and if you’re coming to Dublin in January then we’ve got a few suggestions that might make your visit a lot more exciting…
Rugby kicks off
The world’s greatest annual rugby competition, The Six Nations, may not start until the 1st of February but the two big club competitions rumble on with Leinster in action against Connacht on the 4thin the Pro14 and against Lyon on the 12th in the Rugby Champions Cup.
Temple Bar TradFest 2020
It’s back. Traditional Irish music something a lot of visitors love to see experience while they’re here and you’re going to be here at the perfect time. Temple Bar TradFest 2020 is happening throughout Temple Bar in the city from the 22nd of January to the 26th with some of our most famous international acts together with the brightest new and upcoming local singers, dancers, musicians and bands.
The Sound Of Music
The all-singing, all-dancing Sound Of Music is back in Dublin at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre until the end of January. Get tickets and get singing along to Edelweiss, My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain and The Sound of Music.
One of Dublin’s best-loved shows is on again in the National Concert Hall just across St Stephan’s Green from the hotel. This particular production of Oliver! Is brilliant and we can’t recommend it highly enough.
The Gaeity Theatre panto is still running (until the 19th) and it’s just a stone’s throw from our front door. Oh no it isn’t. Oh yes it is.
The Lieutenant Of Inishmore
The much-anticipated play from Oscar-winning director and playwright Martin McDonagh comes to the Gaiety on the 27th of January. If you like Martin’s work on the big screen (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) you’ll love The Lieutenant Of Inishmore.
Strictly Come Dancing
The huge TV phenomenon Strictly Come Dancing is coming to the 3Arena in Dublin on the 28th of January. The massive production is actually called Strictly Come Dancing The Live Tour and if you want tickets you’d better get moving.
