Book a Dublin hostel and 'be astounded with the Fringe Festival'
Those looking to be amazed on a weekend away might like to check out an upcoming event in Ireland.

The Dublin Fringe Festival kicks off on September 11th and runs until the 26th, and could be an ideal excuse to reserve a Dublin hostel.

An array of entertainment in the shape of music, dance, theatre and comedy is set to be on show at the spectacle, which is celebrating its 16th year.

The organisers noted that the extravaganza is now the biggest multidisciplinary festival in Ireland, adding: "We've provoked, amused, astounded, enraged, inspired, entertained and defied expectations. We've been a springboard for careers, national and international tours and watched Fringe productions win countless awards."

Hundreds of thousands of people have witnessed some of the festival's attractions at unusual venues, according to the web page.

But drama enthusiasts looking for a cheap hostel in Dublin to stay at for this year's event may like to book one up near the Samuel Beckett Theatre, which is set to stage Medea, a tale of a man and a women who are "caught in the nets of jealousy and destructive love", the festival's website noted.

Individuals looking to see a more unusual act might like to check out Pajama Men Last Stand to Reason, which features two men acting out a feast of comic theatre to wow the crowds.

And if this event appeals then it might be worthwhile booking a hostel in Dublin for the city's theatre festival which begins on September 30th and lasts until October 17th.
