Pride weekend Dublin has been showing off the LGBTQ+ community’s love, hope, and diversity for over three decades and is the biggest pride in Ireland!.

Dublin Pride is an annual event held in the vibrant and colorful city of Dublin, Ireland. It celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and their journey towards equality, while promoting diversity, inclusion, and acceptance. The event began in 1974 and has since become one of the biggest pride celebrations in Europe, attracting people from all over the world.

The festivities of Pride weekend Dublin will be held mostly around the city center and surrounding LGBTQ+ venues in the downtown area. There will be a range of exciting events, including live music, art exhibitions, and of course, the pride parade!

The Dublin Pride Parade is the centerpiece of the festival, attracting tens of thousands of participants and spectators every year. It takes place on the Saturday of pride and winds its way through the streets of Dublin, ending at Merrion Square. The parade will be an amazing sight of color, music, and dancing, with floats, marching bands, and performers showcasing their talents and spreading the message of equality and inclusivity.

The festival has a range of events and activities, with something for almost everyone. There are social gatherings, film screenings, workshops, and talks on a range of LGBTQ+ issues. The festival ends in a huge party after the parade in Merrion Square, with live music, DJs, and entertainment into the early hours of the morning.

Dublin Pride promises to be a joyful, vibrant celebration of diversity and equality, and an opportunity to show support for the LGBTQ+ community. Whether you're a member of the community or an ally, there's no better place to be than Dublin during pride week.
