My standout single production of the year was The Abbey's brilliant production of Pygmalion.
On Open House weekend in October, my favourite tour was Leinster House, which is of course open all year round to visitors.
I saw a few musicals this year and it's a toss up between Riverdance and Mamma Mia as to which I enjoyed more. Of course they are entirely different. One thing's for sure though, the Peter Pan musical was the worst I've seen in a long time!
Other things I loved in Dublin this year, which deserve mentions are L Mulligan Grocer, Dublin Bikes (which encouraged me to buy one of my own this year) and the now up and running architecture walking tours.
I look forward to a whole new year of culture (with bonus avoiding the European Cup) next year.
