Lynk’s September Events Guide
The Summer (*cough*) might be drawing to a close, but September in this fair city of ours is still filled with a whole host of great things to do. From festivals to major sporting events, Lynk have drilled down the top events to get involved with this September.
Electric Picnic – 1st-3rd
Ireland’s premiere music festival returns this year with exciting international acts like The XX, A Tribe Called Quest, Duran Duran and Phoenix as well as home-grown talent in Annie Mac, Le Galaxie and Rejjie Snow. Tickets are sold out but you can still get your hands on some by taking part in the annual Tour De Picnic if you don’t mind a brisk 80km cycle!
Irish Craft Beer Festival – 7th-9th
Ireland’s biggest craft beer celebration returns to the RDS with over 200 beers, ciders and cocktails as well as a host of artisan food stalls. The movement towards locally crafted products has gained a lot of momentum in recent times and this event should be a great celebration of local Irish businesses. Be sure to leave your car at home if you intend on drinking and let Lynk take you there with a few taps on your phone.
Dublin Fringe Festival – 9th – 24th
Theatre, music, comedy, dance and much much more, the Dublin Fringe Festival offers something for everyone. To describe the Fringe Festival in one paragraph would do it a disservice, so just click on the link below and discover what Fringe has to offer!
GAA Senior Men’s Football Final – 17th
One of the biggest sporting events of the year takes place on the 17th, and although tickets will be like gold-dust, the All-Ireland Final is always worth taking a trip into the city centre to soak in the atmosphere. Who will take home Sam this year?
National Ploughing Championships – 19th – 21st
Returning to Tullamore, Co.Offaly for a second year in-a-row, Europe’s largest outdoor event will look to break last year’s attendance record of 283,000 as the festival continues to grow year-on-year. With over 1,700 exhibitors to explore and competitions like no other, this unique festival is not to be missed.
GAA Senior Ladies’ Football Final – 24th
The last three All-Ireland Finals have seen Cork overcoming Dublin by a single point in each encounter but this year has seen many new contenders in the likes of Galway, Waterford, Kerry and Donegal. With the competition between counties increasing every year, this year’s final promises to be as entertaining and tight as ever. The attendance for last year’s final was the biggest of any women’s sporting event in Europe in 2016 so be sure to get your tickets early!
