The summer is officially over – did it ever start? Well, maybe an Indian summer will kick in to help us through the last few weeks of bright evenings. Whatever the weather, there is still lots going on throughout the country, so here’s a look at some of what’s on offer.

September

Dublin Festival Season (throughout September)

September is officially Dublin Festival month, with a jam-packed schedule in progress. Dublin Contemporary 2011 has turned the city into a gallery for large scale art installations in landmark buildings, established museums and offbeat spaces. Absolut Fringe runs for two weeks, bringing new talent, eccentric ideas and an eclectic mix of performances throughout 40 venues around Dublin. Dublin Culture Night on September 23 sees galleries, museums and cathedrals open their doors for free, while the Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival (September 29 to October 16) is hosting an amazing array of incredible Irish and international theatre, readings, rehearsals and panel discussions. www.dublinfestivalseason.com

Arthur’s Day (September 22)

Returning for its third year and now likely to become an annual event in September, Arthur’s Day is an unashamed marketing event for a certain popular Irish stout, but with it comes an impressive range of concerts and intimate gigs all over the country, along with a couple of pints of the black stuff no doubt. This year’s festival includes Stereophonics, Paloma Faith, Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran, Aloe Blacc and the Scissor Sisters. www.guinness.ie
