Bloom this weekend, the Forbidden Fruit festival is on in the grounds of the stunning Royal Hospital in Kilmainham. 5 stages of music featuring a vast pantheon of music (New Order! Death Cab for Cutie! James Vincent McMorrow) as well as comedy stages which will presumably feature the comedians who didn't bother going to the Kilkenny Cat Laughs. Tickets are €49 for one day and rise to €115 for all three. Doors (gates?) open at 2pm every day and there is NO PARKING ON SITE, so get on the LUAS. There's no camping either, so I do wonder how they can even call themselves a festival!
