Bloomsday Festival

Bloomsday is a widely celebrated event in Ireland that is based on the life of Irish writer James Joyce and the events of his famous novel Ulysses. The first Bloomsday was celebrated in 1954 by Irish authors Patrick Kavanagh and Flann O’Brien. The Ulysses was set on the 16th June 1904 and it is observed and relived on this date in Dublin and elsewhere each year. This year the Bloomsday Festival takes place from Saturday the 11th of June until Thursday the 16th of June.

The festival includes common celebrations such as re-enacting scenes from the Ulysses, dressing up in Edwardian garb and eating the same meals as characters from the book. Events include talks, walking tours, on-street parties and bus tours. A more detailed description of events taking place around the city, can be viewed below.


The Iveagh Gardens

The Iveagh Gardens is a public park located between Clonmel Street and Upper Hatch Street, right behind the National Concert Hall in Dublin 2, Ireland.

At Camden Court Hotel, we believe that one of the best ways to get around Dublin’s fair city is by foot or bike. Especially on a mild day (when it’s not raining). Not only is a bike ride in Dublin city reasonably cheap and convenient, it’s great for sightseeing and exploring.


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.


Time to get giddy in the park this summer! The long awaited Vodafone Comedy festival gets underway at the Iveagh Gardens from the 24th – 27th of June.

Our guests attending this event are in for a treat. The Iveagh gardens is the perfect location to chill out, meet with friends, and laugh your head off until your heart’s content. We have to say, The Iveagh gardens is a totally underestimated unique venue. It’s large enough to get the buzz of atmosphere but intimate enough to really get in with all the action. This hidden sanctuary is just located just off Harcourt Street and just a few steps from The Camden Court Hotel, you are centrally located to keep the night going well after the performances finish.


With the recent annoucement of the cancellation of all Garth Brooks concerts over the 25th July weekend, we can understand some of our guests can be dissaspointed with the outcome.

Fear not!!! Dublin will be going country crazy with a  'Dublin Goes Country'event for Garth Brooks fans!!

Details of a series of events billed as the 'Dublin Goes Country' weekend are available here.


We love the “summer” month activity in Dublin City and with all these lovely bank holiday weekends one after the other, let’s face it the extra day off and a lie in is about the only thing we’re looking forward to with this miserable weather! Visions of toasty BBQ’s are well and truly out the window.

All’s not lost as 2014 activities have certainly amplified since last year and ‘Bloom 2014’ is no exception. The usual venue of choice is the Phoenix Park, Dublin in which case the festivities kick off over the June bank holiday weekend, from Thursday 29th May until Monday 2nd June 2014.


What a summer it’s been so far with the likes of Rihanna, Rod Stewart, Robbies Williamsonly to name a few gracing our stages on the music scene. July is no exception, with the gorgeous ‘Justin Timberlake’, dreamy ‘Michael Bubléand rock and roll kings ‘The Killers’ headlining at ‘Pheonix Park’ and the ‘02’. It’s certainly an attractive mix of entertainment to look forward to in the next weeks.


At C Central we are always looking for ways to reward our customers. We’ve pretty much had the last of our summer weather so we need a good ole cheering up! We are delighted to offer our customers a ‘sizzling’ summer deal that will make your mouth water. Any group that reserve a table of 8 or more on Friday night between from 5-9pm will receive free finger food (wedges, sausages & chicken wings)!
