5 Festivals in Dublin you must attend in July
Like everyone in this country, summer is our favourite part of the year for many reasons. First, because we get a short window of mildly good weather compared to the rest of the year. And second it’s that time of the year when a lot of exciting events are happening.
This summer is going to be particularly special for us, as you probably heard about The Mont hotel opening in July. For this occasion, we thought it would be interesting for you to know about the best art and music events happening in July in Dublin. Here is a selection of them.
5th – 7th July : Longitude, Marlay Park
On the first week-end of July, several international artists will be on stage at Longitude festival, taking place in Marlay Park, in south Dublin. The festival’s line up is impressive with more than forty performers including A$AP Rocky, Cardi B and Future. It promises to be amazing!
13th July : Italian Fusion | Jazz & Prosecco Edition , BelloBar, Portobello
