Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)

Dublin shines with Daffodils

Free culture in Dublin: Tours, lots of Talks, Gigs, Markets

Hi!!

Another week, another Dublin Event Guide. I just continues and I sometimes don’t know what news to tell you, because there are weeks where not toooo much is there to report.

Events are still in Winter mode and seemingly the weather returned to that mode as well, although the daffodils are out as if it was warm out there.

I love daffodils. They are unashamedly bright and shiny. And they represent the spring sun in the most confident way. Just another week until spring and it can’t be more than a month or so ;-) until the temperatures really pick up.

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon. For me usually that’s a sign that the cold season is soon coming to an end.

Funny what we interpret into things, isn’t it? ;-)

If you are interested in starting a business or if you have a business, check out the many events that are happening for Local Enterprise Week from 04 March to 08 March. During lockdown times most of the events were online and that had the advantage that you could even attend events that were organised for businesses in other counties. Now that all is back to in-person meetings, we miss out on the opportunity of attending other events. Maybe we should have kept SOME of the changes from the past?

If you are interested in Local Enterprise Week events, book them now before all is full: www.localenterprise.ie/Week/Local-Enterprise-Week-2024/Local-Enterprise-Week-2024-Events.html

Donations in February:
EUR 276

(By the end of the month, this number has to reach or exceed EUR 200 to guarantee the continuation of the Dublin Event Guide.)

If the Dublin Event Guide helps you to find out about free events in Dublin, please help with a donation.

The counter here shows the current donation status. By the end of the month EUR 200 will be subtracted to pay the bills. If more money has been donated, the rest will be carried forward. If donations have stopped below the EUR 200, the missing amount will be carried over.

Last week, Sharon, Regan, Angela, Olwyn and Louise helped with a donation. Thank you so much!! Your help and support is much appreciated by me and (hopefully) by all other readers of the Dublin Event Guide, because without you, the Dublin Event Guide couldn’t continue!

With the above counter you know at all times where we stand and when donating is needed. Donations keep the Dublin Event Guide alive and all donors will also get some additional bonuses.

Here are some more details about donations:
Any amount is appreciated, but if you are looking for a recommendation, then I suggest a donation of 12 Euro per year. – That’s just one Euro per month and you get FOUR Dublin Event Guides for that Euro! If your funds are limited, but you still want to help, you can buy a virtual coffee for just EUR 4. All donations will be used in full for the Dublin Event Guide.

To donate, use the Dublin Event Guide Donation Page here: gturl.eu/DEGdonate. It is really easy to use and uses Stripe’s trustworthy payment processing. You can even sign up for a yearly subscription on the donation page! Yearly subscriptions will give some important financial stability and reliability to the Dublin Event Guide and are therefore very much appreciated! (Look for the RED subscription buttons at the bottom of the Donation Page.)

In case the donation page doesn’t work for you, the old links are here: You can donate via www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide or for Revolut users among you, just use @joergbrb or now also revolut.me/joergbrb
(If possible, please send your full name and e-mail address as a message with the payment via PayPal or Revolut so that I can tell you about bonuses for donors when available.)

To buy one or two or even three virtual coffees for the Dublin Event Guide, come to the “Buy Me a Coffee” page here www.buymeacoffee.com/DublinEventG

And there is one other way to help and it is even free: If you come to www.DublinEventGuide.com and check out some of the ads and click on the ones that you find interesting, that also helps with a few cent! ?

Thank you!!

+++ Seachtain na Gaeilge – Irish Week
Seachtain na Gaeilge is an Irish language festival that takes place every year in March. It will run from 01-17 March and if you have an interest in Irish, either because you already speak it well or because you want to brush up on it or maybe it is your first steps, there will be events that are suitable for you. Check them out at snag.ie/

+++ LEARN A NEW SKILL WITH ONLINE COURSES
Is there ever a wrong time for learning a new skill or enhancing what you are already interested in? Maybe it is a language or an instrument or some technical skills? Or something completely different? Nearly every subject is there! Check out Udemy via the link below, they have thousands of courses and there is good chance that what you are looking for is available. Nearly all the courses are REALLY affordable!
The lowest price most of the time is EUR 12.99. Sometimes it even goes down further to EUR 9.99 and when that happens (about once or twice a year), I will tell you. But even 12.99 is definitely a good price for what you get! – Check out the website at www.getthislink.com/Udemy22 And if you buy through that link, you also help the Dublin Event Guide! :-)

+++ IKEA Crafting / Music / Cooking Workshops
Ikea in Ballymun runs a variety of crafting, music and cooking workshops it is always worh checking out. The workshops are free and usually go for 45 minutes. They are always for children, but the age is often not fixed. There are specific Toddler and baby workshops at times as well. Check them out on www.ikea.com/ie/en/stores/events/ikea-ballymun/
