What’s On this October 2018 in Dublin

Did you see, do or go to any or many of the festivals or events listed on The Life of Stuff September What’s On in Dublin post? There are still a number of them going on! The Dublin Festival of History, the Dublin Theatre Festival and the Podcast Festival just to name a few. They couldn’t help but celebrate through to this gorgeous crisp aired month of October 2018.

What does October mean to you? A month filled with fallen multicoloured leaves and starry nights? When cardigans and jumpers once hid away get to stretch their arms as they’re brought back to life, your life. A month where the first of the open fires of the season are lit, and the heating turned on, and the immersion left on. Back to soups, stews and coddles gracing bowls again? A month of ghouls and ghosts and goblins, trick or treating, and meeting with friends? The last of holidays to take and mid-term breaks – before the winter sets in.
