In its sixtieth year in Ireland, the Goethe-Institut has curated a huge line up of events across the city and online in October.
Present in Ireland since 1961, Goethe-Institut has played a significant role in cultural exchanges between Ireland and Germany and continues to promote the study of German abroad. To celebrate its sixtieth year, they are hosting a number of events across the city and online.
Alongside online discussions and events, their stunning building will host language taster classes, live performances and podcasts, while Hugh Lane Galley will host talks and live performances throughout October.
