Band Tours to Dublin
With plenty of day-time attractions combined with friendly pubs offering traditional Irish entertainment, Dublin is a truly vivacious destination which provides the perfect backdrop for your band’s concert tour. Only a short distance from the UK, concerts can take place over a weekend in a city that is full of culture and charm.
Behind the excitement of downtown Dublin you will find a city immersed in history and tradition and with well-known sights such as Trinity College, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin Castle and Christchurch Cathedral – there really is something to suit everyone.
Where to Play
The Guinness Storehouse
This is a concert venue with added craic! Where else would you have the chance to perform at one of the city’s most famous landmarks and enjoy a free pint of the local brew at the same time?
This beautiful seaside town, about 30 minutes from Dublin, offers a great alternative concert venue. Bands can perform on the promenade to a welcoming audience and are also invited to have lunch at the local public house!
St Stephen’s Green Park
In the heart of Dublin, St Stephen’s Park is a green haven loved by locals and tourists alike in the summer. The excellent open-air bandstand hosts a series of concerts throughout the summer months and on a sunny day, you’re guaranteed a great audience.
In one of Europe’s largest city parks, it’s possible to perform at the bandstand close to the Zoological Gardens with large numbers of visitors to entertain, especially during the popular summer months.
