There's So Much on this September 2015 in Dublin

September 3rd and there’s already a nip in the air giving the feeling that autumn is around the corner and winter is down the road. For most, summer holidays are over, school is back, Halloween is in sight and there are hints of Christmas in stores. However without wishing our lives away on Santa’s arrival in December (fun fact: the first day of September is the same as the first day of December every year because there are 91 days separating September and December), let’s focus on the near future.

What's On this September 2015 in Dublin

Every month is a great month to explore all that Dublin has to offer. For some inspiration have a read of ; My Five Favourite Dublin Experiences, Top Five Free things to do on a SaturdayFive Fabulous Reasons to go Shopping in Dublin or just have a scan down through my Dublin based postsSeptember however is bursting at the seams with stuff to get up to, some free and some not. Some suitable for all the family, some for adult eyes only. I’ve made a list with links to what I think is hot but just because it’s not on the list doesn’t mean it’s not hot so if you think I’ve missed a festival or event that should be included, let me know in the comment box below.
