What is Culture Night?
Now in its thirteenth year, Dublin’s culture night is a range of free events for one night only. The bill is packed with a whole host of different activities and things to see and do. It gives attendees a chance to indulge in some great late-night entertainment as part of an Ireland-wide programme.

All venues are open from 5pm – 11pm unless otherwise stated. If you’re looking for something fun and unusual to do that won’t break the bank, Culture Night is a truly unique way to spend an evening in Dublin.
