Candlelight Concert at Malahide Castle’s Garden - August 19th

August is also a great month to be in Dublin if you enjoy watching concerts outdoor, many artists come to Ireland to perform and the city has amazing venues to accommodate the events. One of our favorite spots to watch a live music performance is the gardens of Malahide Castle. On the 19th of August 2022, you can buy tickets to watch a candlelight concert by  Avoca String Quartet, playing the main hits of the duo Daft Punk.
