Brendan Galileo for Europe

Fresh from an award winning run at the Dublin Fringe Festival, Fionn Foley returns to Bewley’s Café Theatre with a hilarious play about keeping your integrity at the world’s foremost convention of kitsch. Brendan Galileo is determined to make his mark on Irish political life. He sets his sights on joining the ranks of the European Parliament. However, with his voice so lost in a sea of tribal bureaucracy, he must take drastic action to improve his public profile. Brendan Galileo for Europe is a timely look at community and European politics. It runs through to July 6, from Monday to Saturday at 1pm.

The Dubliner bus tour

Launched this month, the Dubliner is a bus tour unlike any other. Two actors guide you through the streets of Dublin telling you about the people who made Dublin famous; our literary greats, our poets and paupers, our rogues and rascals. 

It’s an evening of theatre, singing and a stop at the pub to enjoy a free shot of Dubliner whiskey.
