Events across the City supported by Dublin City Council

The Dublin City Council events team work to ensure that events delivered in Dublin City offer variety, deliver on fun and excitement and provide opportunities for everyone to enjoy and experience the City in a family-friendly inclusive and safe environment.

We aim to promote the use of public spaces through our year-round programme of festivals and events that bring social, cultural and economic benefits to the city and help to grow tourist and local visitor numbers.

We liaise directly with event organisers and event management companies to assist them with the delivery of safe, properly planned and managed events.
