Dublin City too is a big winner as we expect the large entry to exceed last years spend of 7.86 Million and to reach a new high of over 10 Million this year or next. The route for the Marathon over the last number of years has remained the same with only small changes to the start and finish areas. The prize fund is extended further last year and will have a top prize of 15,000 EURO for the Woman’s and Men’s winners. To help encourage some more Irish winners we are extending the bonuses to the home grow runner, while also extending the time bonus’s that we introduced in 2004 for the first time. The Dublin Marathon is also a member of the Association for International Marathons (AIMS). AIMS gives us profile in all major affiliated marathons world-wide. This will extend our reach well beyond the 9 marathon visits we are undertaking this year which include Turin, London, Paris, Rotterdam, Boston, L.A., Chicago, Berlin, Barcelona, Warsaw, Prague and New York.

Dublin Bowie Festival held annually each January. Live Music, Q&A’s, Memorabilia & Merch, Movies, Concert/Documentaries, Quiz & more.

Our festival started out in 2006 as a small niche traditional music festival, a first for Dublin. We wanted to create something special – a festival showcasing the cream of both Irish and international trad and folk artists while also providing a stage to promote the next generation of Irish musicianship. From modest beginnings the festival has gone from strength to strength. The past decade has has seen the festival grow in terms of size, ambition and musical breadth, with a line-up that now appeals to the purist and the merely curious alike. Although TradFest today is Ireland’s largest festival of traditional music we now also feature artists from the worlds of folk, nu-folk, and even (whisper it) rock and roll! We want to keep it special – we are still a boutique Winter festival – closing the door on the darkest season and ushering in the light and energy of Spring. TradFest also offers concert goers unique opportunities to experience live music in some of Dublin’s most historic places. From the atmospheric Kilmainham Gaol to the grandeur of City Hall, this is the difference between memorable and unforgettable.
