This summer has gone by incredibly quickly! We are but a few days away from August, so only one more month of entertaining the kids before they head back to school!
Here at the Camden Court Hotel, we have really been enjoying the fantastic weather that’s been had over the last few weeks. We have our fingers crossed for it to continue into August to keep the good times coming whether you’re looking for a romantic weekend break or something fun for the family.
Dublin has some incredibly exciting events lined up for August and we at the Camden Court Hotel would love to welcome you through our doors in this upcoming month. For booking information please visit: http://bit.ly/1xufE4u.
We have taken the liberty of compiling a list of our favourite August happenings to make the end of your summer extra special!
Giddy-Up at the Annual RDS Horse Show
The Dublin Horse Show takes place every year at the RDS. This year the event falls on August 6th to August 10th. The show continues to draw mass crowds from all parts of the country, regardless of their horsey-knowledge. Ladies Day (August 7th) is of course one of the most popular days of the event where an array of sophisticated fashions can be seen, including some wonderfully glamorous headpieces. Wondering what to do with the kids? This event has you covered, with an excellent Kid Zone onsite to put your mind at ease. For more details visit: http://bit.ly/1tmmnQq.
