The Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival originated in 1995 as a part of the Dublin Theatre Festival. It was created to promote the work of lesser-known theater company productions. The Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival quickly grew in popularity. This led to it becoming an unassociated festival in 2006. Venues for performances are decided based on what seems most suitable. They range from cafes and theatres to boardwalks and even public buses. Past festivals popularised well known artists Mark O'Rowe, Enda Walsh and Conor McPherson.
