Dublin comes alive with colour and celebration every June for Dublin Pride, Ireland’s largest LGBTQ+ festival. The celebration of Dublin’s LGBTQ community runs throughout the entire month. This year, the biggest Dublin Pride events take place June 29th, 2024, and The Hendrick is the perfect place to stay for all the festivities.

Dublin Pride Parade

The Dublin Pride Parade is a vibrant spectacle of music, dance, and community spirit. This year’s parade takes place on Saturday, June 29th, and The Hendrick is just a short walk or taxi ride from the route. After the parade, head back to The Hendrick to relax and recharge for a night of celebration at Collin’s Barracks!

2024 is Dublin LGBTQ Pride’s 50th anniversary of holding the iconic parade through the city centre, which was originally started to celebrate gay pride. Starting at O’Connell Street, the parade routes through the quays before making it to Merrion Square. The landmark event of the calendar is an all day affair with celebrations kicking off at 1pm in Dublin City Centre.

Dublin Pride Village

Dublin Pride Village is the center of Dublin Pride festivities. This year, Pride Village will be held in Merrion Square on June 29th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Expect a variety of entertainment options, food vendors, and community booths.

The Pride party is a special event and allows the LGBTQ+ Community come together in a safe space. The main stage will have a tonne of top acts, and headline performances. However, the village is an alcohol free zone, but there are plenty of bars nearby to try out.
