Great Splash of Colour!

Dublin Port Company has created a splash of colour for the Dublin Pride Festival which gets underway this week with a new mural installation at the Great South Wall, which attracts over 500 walkers daily.

The Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride Festival 2022 takes place from 22nd to 28th June, however the whole of June is considered Pride Month with a host of organisations and venues running Pride events across the city and county. The Dublin Pride Parade and March will take place on Saturday 25th June with over 13,000 people registered to take part and the route runs from O’Connell Street to Merrion Square.

As part of Dublin Pride 2022, Dublin Port Company has created a new ‘Pride at the Port‘ mural at the Great South Wall which incorporates the pride colours as a symbol of solidarity with our LGBTQ+ Community. Pride flags will fly high throughout Dublin Port and the iconic Diving Bell on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay will be lit up in the rolling colours of the rainbow each evening at dusk for the duration of the festival.

The Great South Wall walk to Poolbeg Lighthouse is a very popular tourist attraction taking in great views of Dublin Bay, with over 180,000 visitors passing the ‘Half Moon’ swimming club over the 12 month period March 2021 to March 2022. We encourage you to check out the sites during Pride Festival and remember to tag and share your pictures with us on social media:
