Festivals & events in Dublin

The annual agenda keeps readers, artists, boozers & sportsmen entertained

Festivals & events in Dublin Docklands Martime Festival
By Claire Boobbyer

Recently, the ring of entertainment has grown and chocolate lovers, circus wannabes and film buffs have been invited into the fold.

There are quite a few annual events worth knowing about before you book your holiday. First, of course, there's St Patrick's Day, still by far the biggest entry in the Dublin calendar. It's now celebrated with plentiful pints of the black stuff the world over, but Dublin is the fun's epicentre. As long as you can cope with the crowds, the weather and the queues, there's no better place to enjoy it.

Calmer heads prevail in the summer at the excellent Dublin Writers Festival and the Bloomsday Festival: the latter celebrates the works of James Joyce, while the former pulls in some of the world's best writers. That sort of thing would bore the bejaysus out of most of the people packed into the stands for the Six Nations rugby tournament each spring, of course. But then, to each his own.

Critic's choice

Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

Where: (information) 50 Upper Mount Street, around St Stephen's Green
When: Feb
Tel & website: 635 0290/www.dubliniff.com
Rising from the ashes of the much-maligned Dublin International Film Festival, this new event seems to be succeeding where the other failed. It celebrates the best of Irish and world cinema in screenings across the city, backed up by events that let fans meet Irish screenwriters, directors and actors.

St Patrick's Day Parade & Festival

Where: various venues
When: 17 Mar
Tel & website: 676 3205/www.stpatricksfestival.ie
It's the world's best excuse for a drink or seven: the feast day of a Welshman who ran the snakes out of Ireland. Over the past few years, the day has been comprehensively glammed up. The parade still forms the core of the celebrations, with some of Europe's brightest street performers and some of the world's loudest pyrotechnics. There's also a five day festival of top-class entertainment including concerts, exhibitions, street theatre, deafening fireworks and general frivolity. Pubs and bars are packed to the rafters from morning to night.

Dublin Writers Festival

Where: various venues
When: June
Tel & website: 881 9613/www.dublinwritersfestival.com
Drawing together 50-odd writers and poets from all over the world, this increasingly high-profile literary event dishes up a banquet of readings, discussions and public debates. Programmes tend to be adventurous, with readings from heavyweights like Julian Barnes sitting comfortably beside an introduction to contemporary Arab writing. Try not to miss the Rattlebag poetry slam, where members of the public compete for a prize.

Bloomsday Festival

Where: James Joyce Centre
When: 16 June
Tel & website: 878 8547/www.jamesjoyce.ie
Held every year around 16 June, the date on which Ulysses is set, and taking its name from the novel's central character, the Bloomsday Festival commemorates Bloom's 'walking out' with a week-long celebration. Readings from Joyce, performances, excursions and meals help recreate the atmosphere of 1904 Dublin. Booking is strongly advised.

Oxegen

Where: Punchestown Racecourse
When: mid July
Website: www.oxegen.ie/www.mcd.ie
Filling the gap left by the much-missed Witness festival, Oxegen is one of Ireland's only multi-stage festivals. Staged over three days at the Punchestown Racecourse in County Kildare, the 2008 line-up included the Kings of Leon, Editors, REM, Kaiser Chiefs, Stereophonics, Groove Armada, the Pogues and the Prodigy, among many others.

Electric Picnic

Where: Stradbally Estate, County Laois
When: last weekend in Aug/first weekend in Sept
Tel & website: tickets 0818 719 300/www.electricpicnic.ie
Billed as a boutique music and arts festival, the three-day Electric Picnic is in its sixth year. Old and new acts join the line-up in the music arena. Musical talent is joined by comedic talent for the International Comedy Club Stage and those looking for an holistic experience may embrace the Body & Soul Village. A performance art troupe, fire installation by David Best, poetry, political debate, a cooking stage and circus completed the rounded entertainment. For the first time, in 2008, a family ticket granted entrance to a specially designated family campsite. Music fans loved the 2008 music line-up - the Sex Pistols, Grace Jones, Franz Ferdinand, My Bloody Valentine, Goldfrapp and Underworld all took to the stage.

Liffey Swim

Where: Rory O'More Bridge to Custom House Quay
When: Sat late Aug/early Sept
Website: www.dublincity.ie
Attempted generally by the very brave or the extremely foolhardy, this annual swimming race begins at the Rory O'More Bridge (near the Guinness Brewery) and ends 1.5 miles (2km) downstream at the Custom House. It was first undertaken by a handful of cold water enthusiasts back in 1920, and these days it attracts about 400 swimmers of all ages. It is organised by the Irish Amateur Swimming Association.

Dublin Fringe Festival

Where: selected venues across town
When: Sept
Tel & website: 817 1677/www.fringefest.com
The Fringe is such an established event it hardly deserves the term 'fringe'. It's usually a mixed bag, but it has its moments. The festival is dedicated to providing a focus for new companies, though it also acts as a test bed where veteran companies can try out new material. The emphasis is on the unusual, and performances are innovative. The huge demand for venues during the event has sometimes forced companies to adapt quickly: previous performances have taken place in the city's public toilets and in parked cars.

Dublin Theatre Festival

Where: various venues
When: Sept-Oct
Tel & website: 677 8899/www.dublintheatrefestival.com
This has been a showcase for the best of Irish and world theatre since its foundation in 1957. It not only provides a stage for emerging local talent, but also attracts international productions. Most of the city's theatrical venues host festival events, and the
programme is usually varied; sometimes it follows a specific theme. Be sure to book in advance.

Spring

12 Points! Festival of Europe's New Jazz

Where: Project Arts Centre
When: March
Tel & website: 881 9613/www.project.ie/ www.improvisedmusic.ie/12points.php
Organised by the Improvised Music Company, the new 12 Points! European Jazz festival offers a sassy mix of jazz from all points of the European compass. As well as the many gigs at venues across town, including Vicar Street and the National Concert Hall, there are movies, workshops and exhibitions.

St Patrick's Day Parade & Festival

Where: various venues
When: 17 Mar
Tel & website: 676 3205/www.stpatricksfestival.ie
It's the world's best excuse for a drink or seven: the feast day of a Welshman who ran the snakes out of Ireland. Over the past few years, the day has been comprehensively glammed up.

There's also a five day festival of top-class entertainment including concerts, exhibitions, street theatre, deafening fireworks and general frivolity. Pubs and bars are packed to the rafters from morning to night.

Convergence Festival

Where: 15-19 Essex Street West, around Trinity College
When: early-mid April
Tel & website: 674 6396/www.sustainable.ie/convergence
This week-long event favours a simple, ethical approach to the business of urban living. Its programme features conferences, theatre, film screenings and exhibits, and themes that include slow food, sustainability, eco-design and plant medicine.

International Dance Festival Ireland

Where: 26 South Frederick Street, Southside
When: April-May
Tel & website: 679 0524/www.dublindancefestival.ie
This innovative and often provocative annual event brings the best international dance companies to perform in the Abbey and the Project. Despite a rocky start (when an audience member sued the festival for programming a show that featured nudity and urination), the festival has been a success.

Summer

Women's Mini-Marathon

When: early June
Tel & website: 293 0984/www.womensminimarathon.ie.
This annual run is the largest event of its kind in the world, attracting upwards of 30,000 participants (not all of them female). It's less a competition than an opportunity to raise money for charity, and the vast majority of people walk rather than run the 10km (six-mile) course.

Dublin Writers Festival

Where: various venues
When: June
Tel & website: 881 9613/www.dublinwritersfestival.com
Drawing together 50-odd writers and poets from all over the world, this increasingly high-profile literary event dishes up a banquet of readings, discussions and public debates. Programmes tend to be adventurous, with readings from heavyweights like Julian Barnes sitting comfortably beside an introduction to contemporary Arab writing. Try not to miss the Rattlebag poetry slam, where members of the public compete for a prize.

Bloomsday Festival

Where: James Joyce Centre
When: 16 June
Tel & website: 878 8547/www.jamesjoyce.ie

Docklands Maritime Festival

Where: Liffey Quays, Docklands
When: June bank holiday weekend
Tel & website: 818 3300/www.dublindocklands.ie/maritimefestival
A festival for sealovers and landlubbers. Maritime attractions include a flotilla of tall ships on the River Liffey while on land there's street theatre and a huge market for foodies.

Music in the Park

Where: various venues
When: June-Aug
Tel & website: 222 2242/www.dublincity.ie
The sun is shining, there's laid-back jazz or rousing opera in the background and all is right with the world. Dublin City Council's free open-air concerts and recitals in the city's parks have been a huge success. Bands can be heard Wednesdays and Friday lunchtimes at Wolfe Tone Park and Herbert Quay. Make your way to the Civic Offices Park on Wood Quay for Opera on Thursday lunchtimes in August.

Pride

Where: Outhouse, 105 Capel Street
When: June
Tel & website: 873 4932/www.dublinpride.org
Highlights of this week-long gay festival include a gay céilídh, drag contests, workshops, readings and theme nights in gay-friendly venues. The flamboyant centrepiece, however, is the Pride march itself, which troops from the Garden of Remembrance at the top of O'Connell Street to the grass-covered amphitheatre beside the Civic Offices at Wood Quay.

Dublin Circus Festival

Where: Temple Bar Cultural Information Centre, 12 East Essex Street
When: mid July
Tel & website: 888 3610/www.templebar.ie
Roll up for a mix of performance art and traditional circus skills; the first 2008 season saw some unusual events. Not-to-be-missed shows included ants and butterflies performing acrobatically on a trapeeze and leek dancing for the vegetable curious.

Temple Bar's Chocolate Festival

Where: Temple Bar Cultural Information Centre, 12 East Essex Street
When: July
Tel & website: 888 3610/www.templebar.ie
A festival in honour of the cocoa bean; somebody has seen sense. This new festival isn't all about licking slabs of the stuff though, it's a celebration of chocolate. Events include sensory exploration, choccie-related films, a chocolate carnival, a chocolate-themed literary event and a cocoa bean workshop. Start salivating now.

Jameson Movies on the Square

Where: Meeting House Square, around Temple Bar
When: July-Aug
Tel & website: 888 3610/www.templebar.ie

Life just got better. Saturday nights (plus an opening and a closing Friday session) will see big-screen movies shown in Meeting House Square. The 2008 billing included a comedy mix of the Commitments, Some Like it Hot, Life of Brian and Borat.

Oxegen

Where: Punchestown Racecourse, Naas, Co Kildare
When: mid July

Dublin Horse Show

Where: Royal Dublin Society, Anglesea Road, Ballsbridge, Southern suburbs
When: early Aug
Tel & website: 668 0866/www.rds.ie/horses
Offering some of the richest prizes in the world, this five-day showjumping event attracts high-profile visitors and competitors. The famous Nations' Cup, where international teams compete for the prestigious Aga Khan Trophy, is traditionally held on a Friday; Thursday is Ladies' Day.

Festival of World Cultures

Where: venues across the city
When: 28-30 Aug 2009; 27-29 Aug 2010
Tel & website: 271 9555/www.festivalofworldcultures.com
This annual arts and music festival is as international in scope as its name suggests (more than 50 countries take part). It may have a worthy aim (namely, promoting respect, understanding and awareness between different cultures) but it's also a really good laugh.

Electric Picnic

Where: Stradbally Estate, County Laois
When: last weekend in Aug/first weekend in Sept
Tel & website: tickets 0818 719 300/www.electricpicnic.ie

The Moscow State Circus comes to Ireland with it’s latest & greatest production todate. Park Gorkogo. Set in the mystical centre of Moscow’s cultural & artistic quarter Park Gorkogo (Gorky Park) is the perfect back drop for what is undoubtedly the greatest & most famous circus on earth.

Superstar Clowns Splendid Pavlik & Klava invite the audience to this wondrous & mysterious place, a place to romance, a place to stroll & take in Moscow at sunset & a place to see magnificent feats of human achievement, in many case’s, non of the like have ever been witnessed in Great Britain before.

As our Loveable Buffoons reminisce about past times in one of the most famous cities on earth they are surrounded by a multitude of flying, back flipping, juggling & roller skating performers

As the park changed in accordance with the mood of the new century, it’s traditions were the basis of the new concept of Park Gorkogo, these changes are reflected in the new show as like a pendulum it swings from the Unbelievable and award winning Flying Trapeze of Alievs White Birds to the whirlwind roller skating of the Veslovskis. from 3 bathing beauties on the revolving ariel ring to the vertical pole jugglers of the 4 Yakovleys. From the most elegant hand balancing of Vladislav Khostik to the gorgeous & gracious ariel sail of Natalia Goncharova.
Ad to the mix the Kozak whip crackers & the revolving Russian swing catapulting its 10 strong troupe high into the apex of the chapito at breakneck speed & you will see an amazing awe inspiring show, created especially for its first ever European tour.

Kid Congo And The Pink Monkey Birds
The Grand Social , Dublin
Thursday 21st March at 8pm
Tickets 20 euros from www.tickets.ie
"The last great survivor of the almighty early-80s swamp-punk scene, guitar-slinger Kid Congo Powers might just have the greatest CV in rock'n'roll history. No exaggeration - this man was an integral part of the Cramps, the Gun Club and Nick Cave's Bad Seeds, three absolutely colossal names in the annals of post-punk, and without doubt three of the most influential bands of the age.
Having pioneered the fabled 'Wall of Noise' feedback-heavy fuzz-guitar sound on the Gun Club's seminal Fire Of Love album despite not knowing what the chords were called, Kid Congo was personally headhunted by Lux and Ivy of the Cramps, who adored his looks and his style. But he would invariably gravitate back towards the Gun Club, working with soul brother Jeffrey Lee Pierce, with whom he collaborated on some of the most soul-searching music ever created - some of it powerfully punkish and aggressive, some of it dreamy and beautiful (just check out Mother Juno, a spine-tingling album which sounds like ocean waves).
Nick Cave also became a fan, and enlisted Kid's services for Tender Prey and his ultimate masterpiece The Good Son. The Gun Club era having come to a tragic halt with the untimely passing of Pierce in 1996, Kid Congo's latter-day career has witnessed a couple of well-received solo albums (In The Heat of the Night and Solo Cholo).
The man himself is now about to hit Dublin again with his current outfit, the Pink Monkey Birds. Dublin has been warned! A man with a million stories, often cited as one of the nicest men in the musical universe, this guy is more than worth a look "
