We’ve put together some helpful information about the festival below. Feel free to contact us for further information.
— What is the Stoneybatter Festival?
The Stoneybatter Festival is a celebration of our local community and the creativity that surrounds us here in the heart of Dublin 7.
Building on the success of the Festivals in 2017 and 2018 and on the work of Stoneybatter Pride of Place which won the award for Best Urban Heritage Village in 2016, the Festival will have activities for all ages and tastes.
Friday evening 21st June will mark the launch of the Festival with the Lord Mayor of Dublin followed by events in local pubs, shops and businesses.
Saturday 22nd June is an Open Day where local businesses, schools, museums, churches and even private homes will open to the public. Stoneybatter will be buzzing with sporting, environmental, culinary, literary and music events all day.
Sunday, 23rd June will be the highlight: a Family Fun Day will see Stoneybatter & Manor Street pedestrianised from Arbour Hill to Kavanagh’s Public House – with music, dance, food, stalls, talks, tours, workshops and special activities aimed at children and young people. Back by popular demand, festival events will include Mrs Doyle’s Tea Party with Mrs Doyle herself, aka Pauline McLynn, and Woofstock – the best dressed dog competition. Plus President Michael D Higgins has been invited once again!
