Lynk’s June Event Guide
June is one of the most exciting months in Dublin with music, literature, food and culture festivals all taking place across the city. There were too many events to cover in this instalment of our Dublin Event Guide but we have narrowed it down to 6 exciting events you can head to in June. If you’re travelling around the city, download the Lynk Taxis app and leave the car at home!
30th May – 3rd June
Ireland’s largest garden festival returns once again to Phoenix Park this summer. While the show gardens take centre stage, there will also be food, entertainment, shopping and family fun available on the day! From cookery workshops to patchwork demonstrations and everything in between, there will be something for everyone at Bloom.

1st & 2nd June
Forbidden Fruit Festival
If you’re looking for something a bit more exhilarating from your Bank Holiday Weekend, head down to the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. The likes of Elbow, Skepta, Fontaines D.C and much more will be taking to the stage over two days. You may need to bring your wellies however, the forecast is not looking great! Tickets are almost sold out so act fast.
VHI Women’s Mini Marathon
Although we probably can’t convince you to take part in a mini marathon on a few days notice (or can we?), this well-organised event is a great day out even if you are just going along as a supporter. With money being raised for so many worthy causes, every little bit of support helps on the day. Make a sign, bring a whistle and cheer on the entrants as they run, walk and crawl 10k for charity.

6th June – 3rd August
Based on the novel by Roddy Doyle, this production of The Snapper will take place in the Gate Theatre. This incredibly funny story follows the life of a Northside family in the 80s as they navigate an unexpected pregnancy. Any fan of the book or movie will not want to miss out on this one!
13th – 16th June
Taste of Dublin
Ireland’s #1 food & drinks festival returns to Iveagh Gardens for 4 indulgent days in June. This year’s theme will be the celebration of the revolution of the Irish menu! Each day has an afternoon and evening session with each one lasting 4-5 hours. Tickets are sold for each session which should give you plenty of time to try all of the dishes that catch your eye.
21st – 23rd June
This street festival is a celebration of the community and creativity that makes Dublin 7 such a special and historic area. The event launches on Friday 21st with the Lord Mayor of Dublin kicking off proceedings. Local businesses, museums, schools and churches will be open to the public as they host sporting, music, food and literary events. Manor Street is set to be completely pedestrianised on that Sunday with the return of Mrs Doyle’s Tea Party and the annual best dressed dog competition!
