Culture Night Dublin
Culture Night promises to provide something new and exciting from the usual Friday night in Dublin. Nearly 200 museums, galleries, churches, historic houses, artists’ studios, cultural centres and more will be throwing open their doors after normal visiting hours so you can get a unique look at what they do.
The city is divided up into 7 different areas each with its own varied list of events. Dublin is such a cultural city, with each square mile packed with ancient buildings bursting with history and up to the minute art galleries so you won’t miss out if you stay in one area.
All the events are free to enter but you may need to book in advance for some as places may be limited. Most places will be open from 5pm – 11pm giving you plenty of time to visit the host of attractions.
If you are having trouble deciding what to do why not just a have a wander around? All of the venues open will be marked with a Culture Night Balloon plus many of the events will be outdoors, so just go with the flow and see whatever takes your fancy.
If you’re not up for walking around, catch some culture on-the-go via the organised bus and tram tours that take in many of the sites, experience lively music, traditional Irish storytelling and if you’re lucky fiery flamenco dancing!
As Culture Night takes place all over Dublin it is probably a good idea to start off near the centre of town at Trinity College. You can easily get there in about 10 minutes by either the red line tram from Smithfield Luas stop or by catching a bus from Church Street.
