What's it all about?

It's basically a festival of science and culture with lots of cool and interesting events and activities taking place. The wide range of activities means that there is something to suit all ages so check out what's happening here

The festival will hold hands-on activities, treasure hunts, workshops, robot building, curiosity carnival, interactive installations, science busking and much more. 

Some of the highlights include:

The vision of the festival is to get people believing in a world where every person has the confidence, the courage and the opportunity to be curious. The Festival of Curiosity came about when Dublin was the City of Science 2012, winning the bid to host of the Euroscience Open Foum in July 2012 and is now an annual event.
