Culture Night 2014 – What to do in Dublin

Culture Night – Friday September 19th, 2014

Culture Night 2014

I love Culture Night in Dublin. So too does Patrick and we both love strolling around the city hand in hand checking out what our capitol has to offer us. For as long as this blog has been going I’ve dedicated a post or two to the event, check out how different my photo style for the blog was back in September 2012 or how about my wee rant last year 2013.

This year I’m hoping will be as the last two have been and will be a glorious night full of, well, Culture!

Here are a few events that have caught my eye so far 

Culture Night 2014 at NCAD Gallery 

The NCAD Gallery opening hours will be extended to 10pm and there will be a two person exhibition ‘not life / necessarily‘, featuring new work by artists Chloe Brennan and Chanelle Walshe and selected screenings in the Harry Clarke House Lecture Theatre. For more information visit

Culture Night 2014 at Science Gallery

Join Jennifer McElwain as she talks and discusses The Oldest Strange Weather that have coincided with the earth’s mass extinctions. Admission: FREE (Pre-booking advised)

Culture Night 2014 at The Workman’s Club

Culture night will be kicking off at 5pm with an Open Mic Night in the Venue Bar hosted by Dublin Writers’ Forum. Following that at 9.30pm will be Fathers of Western Thought’s musical interpretation of Ulysses from the ‘Re:Joyce’ project. Finally to really add the cherry on top, on the first floor, will be Today FM’s DJ Ed Smith and his show on the road ‘Ed’s Indie Disco‘. He’s class. For more information visit

Culture Night 2014 at Tower Records, Dawson Street

Make noice for a Silent Disco, kicking off from 5pm. Then prepare yourself for some pop up performances and sets by Moxie and Culture Night ambassador Miss Kate. Keep posted on twitter
