Mad March is full of crazy Paddy’s Day parties around Dublin and IrelandÂ . April is a more relaxed month inÂ the City withÂ time to chill out and prepare for Easter . Here are a few of my ideas as what to do in Dublin in April which take you slightly off the beaten track !.
1-30 April – One City One Book Festival 2014 -Â this festival is hosted in many venues around Dublin. Libraries are hosting public readings and theatrical events to bring the book to life.

Â 19 â€“ 20 April – Clontarf Viking Festival â€“ it will be largest Viking village and living history battle re-enactment ever produced in Ireland. Should be very impressing event (that what organizers promising on their website) The festival located in St. Anne’s Park (Raheny Dublin 5)
24 April – 4 May 2014 – The Beatyard 2014Â – music festival in various locations, mostly in Dublin 2 area (Lighthouse Cinema, The Grand Social, The Button Factory and Tower Records… etc.) Artists, all venues and prices for some of the events on the website
