Stoneybatter Festival, Stoneybatter – Friday to Sunday

Now in its second year, the Stoneybatter festival returns until Sunday displaying the finest offerings the area has to offer.  The event is a celebration of the local community and business in Stoneybatter, Manor Street and the surrounding areas. As well as focusing on entertainment, culture and heritage, this year food will take pride of place in the festival.

More than 40 food and drink businesses have gathered to take part in the Stoneybatter Food and Drink Trail to increase awareness of what’s available in the local area. Loyalty cards will be available in participating venues and visitors will be invited to enter into a draw for a hamper made up of products from participating businesses.

Amongst the highlights, Mrs Doyle (AKA actress and author Pauline McLynn) will return to judge the Mrs Doyle’s Tea Party – The Great Batter Bake-Off, alongside other festival delights and treats. For more info, click here

The three day festival takes place in Kilrush Upper in Co. Westmeath and will see loads of acts take to the stage across the weekend including Mango x Mathman, Le Boom, Soulé, Daithí and more. 

Meanwhile, Joanne McNally, Emmet Kirwan, Tommy Tiernan and Aoife Dooley are among the acts headlining the comedy tent.

Miss Mousie’s Ball - Saturday

A free music and arts class is being held for the children of Ringsend, Pearse Street and the South Docks this Saturday, June 23. Miss Mousie’s Ball is a class that will introduce children to Irish traditional and folk songs. Running from noon to 2:30pm, the event is free, but parents are asked to register in advance at creative.ireland.ie.

Presented as part of Dublin Culture Connects’ Cruinniu na nOg, the one-day workshop invites local kids aged 8-10 to hear and learn songs of their neighbourhood such as Fall Down Billy O’Shea, the infamous tale of a group of Dublin young lads who fall asleep on John Rogerson’s Quay and wake up onboard a ship; and Johnny Doyle, the story of a Ringsend woman who disguises herself as a man to sail on board a pirate boat and find her sailor husband.

The afternoon will feature a series of warms-ups and games, a song workshop, and an arts and crafts class where the children will create art based on the songs learned on the day.

At the end of the day, parents will be invited to hear the children perform the songs and display their artwork.

Flavours of Fingal, Newbridge House, Donabate – Saturday and Sunday

The fifth annual Flavours of Fingal will bring farming to the city (sort of) with a celebration of all things agricultural this weekend.

Last year’s county show attracted a record 80,000 visitors, and organisers are expecting similar numbers to flock to Newbridge House and Farm in Donabate.

The event showcases the best of Irish farming and artisan foods on the edge of our capital city with livestock competitions, equestrian activities and much more.

Free shuttle buses will be available from Balbriggan, Skerries/Lusk, Swords and Donabate/Portrane.
