Planning a visit to Dublin in September?
If you’re looking for ideas for things to do in the city, then we’ve got some great suggestions for you. On top of the usual attractions and events in our capital, here’s our pick of the best things to do in Dublin in September including some ways you can support some great causes:
1. Great Pink Run
This year’s Great Pink Run is on Saturday September 9th in the Phoenix Park. As always it promises to be a great day out for the whole family: If you feel like it, do the 10k run or if not, take the 5k walk.
2. Liffey Swim
It’s that time of year again when the hardier residents and visitors take the plunge in the only swimming race through the middle of a European capital. The Dublin City Liffey Swim is on the 9th and is a highlight of the open swimming year.
3. GAA All-Ireland Football Final
Sunday September 17th will see the climax of the Ireland’s biggest sporting season with the GAA All Ireland Gaelic Football Final in the home of Irish sport, Dublin’s Croke Park.
4. Culture Night
This is a relatively new festival but it is really capturing the hearts of the nation. Culture Night is a night of free entertainment all over Ireland as arts and cultural organisations stage events take place in many historic venues. Dublin will lead the way with nearly every venue and historic building taking part.
5. GAA All-Ireland Ladies Football Final
Ladies Gaelic Football is one of the fastest growing female sports in the world and on September 27th the two best counties will compete in the All-Ireland Final, once again in Croke Park Stadium.
6. La La Land In Concert
The biggest movie of 2016 comes to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre with La La Land in Concert on Thursday September 28th. See this fantastic musical once again but this time with a live score from a full orchestra.
7. A Murder Is Announced
Miss Marple is coming to the Gaiety Theatre in early September and another cracking Agatha Cristie whodunit, A Murder Is Announced. But first, make sure to check performance times and book your tickets.
8. All-Ireland Craft Beerfest
The second week in September will see the All-Ireland Craft Beerfest at Dublin’s RDS. Ireland may be synonymous with one certain black beer but there are a number of fantastic craft breweries all over the country and this is your chance to sample the best of them.
9. Foil, Arms & Hog
Internet comedy sensation Foil, Arms & Hog will be on stage at the Abbey Theatre as they bring their hugely popular live show to Dublin’s Fringe Fest. Get your tickets and check performance times at fringefest.ie.
