The Five Lamps Arts Festival
Take part in one of Dublin's most inclusive and creative community events.
One of Dublin's most inclusive and creative community events, The Five Lamps Arts Festival is a unique showcase of arts, culture and social life in the heart of the north inner city.
Centring on the decorative Five Lamps lamppost, which dates back to the late 1800s and stands to this day at the junction of five streets – Portland Row, North Strand Road, Seville Place, Amiens Street and Killarney Street – the festival was first established in 2007 as an initiative of Marino College of Further Education.
Today, it has grown into an anticipated annual event that brings together members of the Dublin community from both sides of the Liffey for a celebration of tradition, history, storytelling, and performance, and an all-round great day out for folks from all walks of life.
With 43 great events being hosted in 15 venues across our capital city, this year's Five Lamps Arts Festival is sure to have something for everyone. Don't miss it.
