Not to worry though, as there are many great events taking place this October to keep your mood high! Check out our October event guide below – don’t forget to download the Lynk App from your app store and let us help you get around to all the happenings next month.
Dublin Podcast Festival
Although this technically kicked off in September, the majority of these festival events are taking place in October. With live shows from extremely successful podcasts such as The Blindboy Podcast, The Guilty Feminist, Dubland, The Dublin StorySlam and much more set to take place, this is a great chance to experience your favourite podcasts in a new medium!

10th – 14th
Cirque du Soleil – 3Arena
Cirque du Soleil returns to Dublin with the show OVO for 6 performances, after a North American tour that ran since April 2016. ‘’OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement.’’ This description sure catches our attention and we would recommend catching this unique show while it’s in town!
Ireland vs Denmark – Aviva Stadium
After a very disappointing performance against Wales in September, the boys in green will be looking to bounce back against a Danish side who have recently been involved in a lengthy dispute with their FA over image rights. We all know how our last match against the Danes went, and it looks like it will be an uphill task to take a positive result away from them this time around, even with their off-field distractions.
Dave Chappelle & Jon Stewart
Two kings of comedy take to the centre stage of 3Arena on the 17th of October in what is set to be a legendary event. Dave Chappelle, who many consider to be one of the greatest stand-ups to do it will be joined by the satirist and former host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart. While ticket prices are quite a bit higher than your average comedy show, we believe it’s worth it as who knows when you’ll get a chance to see them again!
27th & 28th
Back for its 4th edition in the RDS, this one of a kind festival on the October Bank Holiday Weekend boasts some great acts such as Mac DeMarco, Villagers and Roisin Murphy. If you missed out on festival season during the summer, you still have a chance to fill the gap with Metropolis! With a slight change in the direction in terms of the music that will be on display, it is also worth noting for anyone thinking of going that this event now operates an over 21’s age policy.
Whether you’re competing or not, the Dublin Marathon is a fantastic day out for people of all ages. Head in to one of the many cheering sections on the route and lend your support and cheers to the thousands of runners passing by. With many runners taking part in aid of charity, there is still plenty of time to donate to a cause close to your heart.
