Even though the summer is drawing to a close, there are still plenty of exciting things to do in Dublin this September!
No matter what you’re interested in, you are sure to find something to take your fancy while you are studying English with us here in Alpha College this September.
Friday 16th September
This night of entertainment and discovery takes place across the country as arts and cultural organisations stage events in many historic venues for thousands of visitors to enjoy.
Last year a record 230 events will take place across Dublin alone in venues including Christ Church Cathedral, the National Museum of Ireland, the Science Gallery Trinity College, The Guinness Storehouse, Dublin Castle State Apartments, The Ark, A Cultural Centre for Children, the Chester Beatty Library and many more. 2016 promises to be even bigger and better.

Dublin VegFest 2016
Sunday 11th September
Last year’s Dublin Vegfest was a smash, with over 1000 people in attendance to learn, discuss, and of course, to eat. This year Vegfest is back and better than ever for a one-day extravaganza of all things vegan and vegetarian.
Dublin Vegfest 2016 is set to be chock-a-block with the very best in vegan food, ethical and natural products, lifestyle talks, recipe demos, superfoods, performances, info from exhibitors and non-profits, and tons more. Set in a massive new venue over three floors, the focus will be on relaxation and the enjoyment of good, cruelty-free foods and products.
Vegans and carnivores alike are welcome to this friendly event, so sample the goods at Dublin Vegfest 2016. You’ll be glad you did.

Dublin Night Run
Tuesday 27th September
With both 5k and 10k courses, runners of all levels will have a chance to pound the tarmac in a tidy loop from Park West Business Park and along the Grand Canal.
Starting and finishing near the Plaza in Parkwest, the 5km participants will do one circuit, while the 10km will do two. Either makes for a great midweek run for September, to keep you out of early hibernation.
Entries are limited so don’t leave it too late to enter, and be sure to bring a gang along for the experience. A nice, shiny Finisher’s Medal to meet you at the finish line for bragging rights, along with that unequivocal sense of satisfaction.
Tickets from €15 – more information: dublinnightrun.runclontarf.com
