September Volume: Humble Guide to help you find things to do apart from going to a pub in Dublin & surroundings !
As promised I was going to tell you in advanced what Dublin has to offer on a monthly basis! And guess what? September is full of cultural events! I'll start with the Dublin culture night on the 23rd of September - where all events are free! (only some venues you need to book in advanced, due to capacity). You can download the programme for free on their webpage and decide what is more of interest to you: music, art, literature, history. They also have a facebook page that you can follow you can get there from their webpage which is:
If you are into musicals, there is the hit "Thriller live" musical at the Grandcanal Theatre from the 19th of September to the 24th and tickets are running fast! I have mine already! Of course you have to be a Michael Jackson fan to enjoy this musical since most of his hits will be sang there!
For the ones who enjoy having some German Oktoberfest atmosphere at the Dublin Docklands area, there is a small representation of pure Bayern Beer tent with a genuine band from Bayern, sausages, Brezzel etc from the 22th of September to the 9th of October ! Entrance is free ,it can get very busy at weekends so i'd advise to go one day in the middle of the week after work.

Again more beer events , this time Irish pure Guiness, with Guiness Arthur's day on the 22nd of September, good black beer mixed with good music! There will be some big gigs such as Stereophonics , Scissor Sisters or Calvin Harris, I'm actually now thinking whether i can go to one of them or not uhm.

Wait ,wait there is more, 2 of my favourite festivals of the year also take place in September!
The first one " The fringe festival" full of alternative theater, performances and dance. More info to be found on their web page, tickets can be bought online, loads of events so take your time to go through the programme! It actually starts today (the 10th.09) and lasts until the 25.09.2011
Last but not least the Ulster Bank theater festival where you can find more contemporay, classic and alternative theater plays,it starts just at the end of September on the 29th and lasts until the 16th of October
If you are a theater lover like me you have to attend both of the festivals I have just mentioned above, there are plays from different price ranges and for every pocket! Don't forget my tips from the first post on how to organize your events, do some research and put them on your calendar to remember them!
Sure there are more events but i think you have enough of them on your list now, don't you think?? So who is still thinking that there is not much to do in Dublin??huh??
