What’s On In Dublin: August

August is the last month of Summer (tear), and it’s always a great one for events in the city to soak up the last of the sun (ok so we’re optimistic.) Here’s some great things happening this month in Dublin.

1. The Big Grill Festival – 13th-16th

A weekend long BBQ you say? We’re there. The Big Grill will see a turnout of the finest craft beers, BBQ food and foodie entertainment that Ireland has to offer – we’ll be checking out the chilli eating competition for sure! It’ll be held in Herbert Park in Ballsbridge so head there Thursday or Friday for a bit of apres-work fun or bring the kids down at the weekend.


2. Disco Brunch at Drury Buildings – 16th August

The Gentlemens Academy presents the last Disco Brunch of the Summer at 2pm Sunday 16th of August. Head down for a day of cocktails, DJ’s and delicious food. Tickets are €25.


3. Dublin Horse Show – 5th-9th

For a fun day out with the family head to the Dublin Horse Show in the RDS. Show jumping competitions, horse classes, music, food and a Ladies Day are all apart of this 5 day horsey affair.


4. Blues, Roots & Brass Festival – 8th – 9th

The Camden Quarter brings a weekend of music to Whelans and Opium for anyone who loves those deep south sounds. There’s a whole host of musicians taking the stage and entrance is free!

One of the greatest musicals of all times is hitting Dublin’s Bord Gáis Theatre for a stunning new production of this iconic story. Tickets range from €20-60.
