Although we’ve never been a nation who’s needed an excuse for a party, we’ve got a long list of them for you anyway!
With over 500 Street Feasts registered to take place across Dublin this Sunday, 11th June, there is an event for everyone no matter what your style. If you haven’t registered a Street Feast but would like to get involved, you can access the public events here. You can search your area to see what’s happening or use the map to narrow it down. Once you’ve found one you like the look of, contact the host to confirm details. Once you’ve done that, all you need to do is bring a dish to share – it really is that simple! Check out some of the public events in Dublin this weekend as listed below..

N Great George’s St, Rotunda, Dublin
This is a celebration of North Great George’s Street and the wider community and, because of James Joyce’s links to the street – and the Joyce Centre’s location on North Great George’s Street, it will also celebrate Bloomsday. There will be food, live music and theatrical performances.

Bridgefoot Park, Dublin 8
The space has been going through a lot of changes lately but there is a strong community behind it ensuring it continues to meet the local’s needs and the community garden remains. Our friends at Dublin Mens Shed have done a great job at putting together this celebration and are set to welcome both new faces and old.
