Organisers of the 2018 Dublin Pride Parade have revealed this year's route.

It'll assemble at St Stephen's Green South at 12 noon on Saturday, June 30th.

There will be speeches and entertainment, before revellers head though the city centre to Smithfield.

The parade itself will move off at 2.00pm sharp.

It will go down Cuffe Street, Kevin Street and Patrick Street - before crossing Fr Matthew Bridge and heading on Church Street around to Smithfield.

Organisers say the parade is "a celebration of the rich diversity of the LGBTQ community in Dublin, Ireland and the world".

The parade is Ireland's and is now one of Europe's biggest LGBT+ people parades - with up to 30,000 plus people marching in 2017.

Last year's parade featured, for the first time ever, the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar who took part.

The first Dublin LGBT Pride Parade took place back in 1983, and it's now the largest such celebration in Ireland.

The 2018 festival takes place from June 21st to 30th.

A guide to the week-long events has also been published.
