The Beale Street Festival is one of the most popular events in Ireland every year. It brings over a million visitors from all over the world every year to the iconic Oriel Restaurant in Carlos and the Beale Street Church in Dublin. This fantastic annual event brings to Ireland the very best of traditional Irish arts and crafts and cuisine from all over Europe and beyond. This year’s special event promises to be spectacular with so much great talent on display for our visitors.
For music fans, the Beale Street Music Festival can’t come soon enough. With local and international acts such as The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Tiesto perform on top of giant screens and behind massive crowds, this will be an evening to remember for all ages to take in. For more adult entertainment, the adult dance show with Phoenix and Don Juan’s likes will be a highlight of the festival and the traditional Irish bands. If you want something more relaxed and spiritual, then head over to the Art space and learn about Ireland’s different traditions with their range of workshops and talks. There’s also plenty of family-friendly activities and free entertainment for children too – perfect for kids and young people to have a good time!
Of course, with this fantastic array of entertainment and amazing sights, there will also be plenty of fun for the whole family, or if you’re the adults, bring your partner! The festival is only as good as its visitors, and with this year’s lineup of big-name bands and artists, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The secret is to make sure you arrive early to avoid the massive crowds – and get your Irish passport before you get there, so you don’t have to worry about tickets! If you are going as a group, the better choice would be to book online as you will often find that the website offers discounts. Once you’ve booked everything together, head out onto the streets of Dublin to experience the unique live atmosphere, and celebrate the legacy of William Joyce – one of the most famous writers of modern-day Ireland.
