07 Oct Free Things To Do In Dublin
If you’re looking for free things to do in Dublin this weekend you’ve come to the right place! Check out the list.
St. Stephen’s Green
It’s open all year round and is a nice break away from the madness of Grafton Street. Enjoy a scenic walk around the well-kept gardens and see the pretty swans. You can jump on a Luas from the South Side of Dublin to be dropped to the door and it’s a mere stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street. It’s a great spot for kiddies as well, the playground has slides, swings and all a kid needs to be satisfied for a playful day. Another wonderful feature of Stephens Green is the Garden For The Blind with signs in Braille and flowers with strong scents. Tours are also available for tourists.
It’s on the 14th-16th of October folks. Ever wondered about where some of Dublin’s most iconic buildings came from? Well this is the event for you. A programme of exhibitions, tours and talks take place outlining Irish architecture and how it has shaped society and architecture of the future.
See where science and art collide. 2 million people have visited the gallery since it opened in 2008 and is known as one of the top free facilities to visit in Ireland, let alone Dublin. It is a place where great, creative minds have come together to showcase events fuelled by an extensive knowledge in the areas of science, research, art, design, invention and creative thinking. Check out the video to see events for 2016.
Find all the best that Irish Designers have to offer at the Cow’s Lane Designer Market in Temple Bar. From handmade hats to handbags, jewellery and more you are sure to find something quirky at Cow’s Lane. It’s on every Saturday between 10am and 5pm.
Go and get your make up done
Now this is a good one for ladies who aren’t afraid to say no! It’s super handy if you’re going on a night out and you haven’t quite perfected your contouring technique yet. Just pop in and ask the professionals how to do it properly and maybe get them to do your eyes, eyebrows, foundation and lips while they’re at it too! If you’re happy enough with the product you might as well buy it and we shouldn’t take too much advantage too!
Sit out in the grass in Trinity College
If you’re getting off the train at Pearse Street or if you’re just wandering around town waiting for a friend, have a walk around the Trinity College grounds. It’s a nice peaceful haven amongst the hustle and bustle in town. Get a coffee and just pan on the grass.
Now when you’re finished your fun day of free activities, why not throw a mad hatter’s tea party into the mix or pan out with a few cocktails in The Morgan Bar and enjoy some afternoon sessions this weekend.
