Wood Quay Summer Sessions image

The Wood Quay Summer Sessions are a series of free lunchtime concerts which will take place in The Civic Offices Amphitheatre each Thursday in July. The aim of the sessions is to promote and support home grown musical talent. Last year’s sessions featured the very best of established and up and coming Irish bands. This year the event will feature performers from across a wide range of musical genres including Jazz, Trad, Folk and more. Admission is free so grab your lunch, bring your friends and join us at The Wood Quay Summer Sessions this July. This event is brought to you by Dublin City Council’s Events Section.
