Events for the weekend (27 & 28 May)
Fortunately this weekend will not be as busy as the previous one, so it will be a wee bit easier to decide what to do and where to go as a family. :)
Dublin Dance Festival is the leading dance event on the Irish arts calendar. Each year in May, the Festival brings together dance artists and choreographers from across the world to share vibrant contemporary dance with audiences in Ireland.
