Forbidden Fruit

Dublin city centre’s multi-stage music and arts festival, FORBIDDEN FRUIT, is set to return for its seventh instalment on the June Bank Holiday weekend, 3rd - 5th June 2017. A unique city centre festival that combines music, art, fashion, food and simple good vibes.

The spectacular grounds of Irish Museum of Modern Art will once again play host to the hotly anticipated three-day festival, which has become firmly fixed in the gig-goers calendar as the grand-opening to the festival season, and the official start of the summer. 

Set across four stages (Original Stage, Outcider, Lighthouse, Someplace Else), offering a wide selection of different styles of music, to suit all tastes, you can expect the usual fruity cocktail of great cutting-edge sound, comedy, art, good food, and festival fun.

Royal Hospital Kilmainham

The Royal Hospital Kilmainham (Irish: Ospidéal Ríochta Chill Mhaighneann) in Kilmainham, Dublin, is one of the finest 17th-century buildings in Ireland.

The hospital was built in 1684 by Sir William Robinson, official State Surveyor General for James Butler, 1st Duke of Ormonde and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland to King Charles II, as a home for retired soldiers and continued in that use for over 250 years. The style is based on Les Invalides in Paris with a formal facade and a large cour
