    St. Anne’s Park concert history is not all that deep. 2019 saw the first concert in recent times, before a halt was placed on shows in 2020, finally returning in 2022.

After the success of the original “Pints in a Field” The 2 Johnnies have moved from Cork’s musgrave park to St. Annes Park Dublin. One of the biggest announcement of Dublin concerts & events was that of Tom Jones, Nile Rodgers & Chic coming to play a show stopping set of their classic albums in this outdoor concert.

    Paws and Petals:

    The magic of St. Anne’s Park extends beyond concerts. Throughout the year, the park comes alive with a variety of festivals and events that celebrate nature, community, and culture.
