As an evening warm up you can listen to the best Irish stand-up comedians in the Laughter Lounge – recommended only for those with a good sense of humor. Then you can attend one of the thousands of amazing Irish pubs in Dublin or go back to the Beer Village for an evening party.

Cultural events all over Dublin

For those who also want a little culture, not just the party side of this 4 day long event, there are some great programs as well. You can attend the recitation with poems about Dublin or participate in the city walking tour called In the Footsteps of Saint Patrick. For a little Irish dancing and music just go downtown as throughout the whole festival the city center will be full of street dancers, musicians and all kinds of performers.

There will also be great family events such as the Treasure Hunt of the festival where families can hunt together following clues at the landmarks of Dublin.
