Event Guide for free Events in Greater Dublin

The "Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)" is Dublin's most popular event magazine that focuses on the vast amount of cultural events for no admission charges. For more than 11 years it was a weekly e-mail magazine that listed, described and recommended 170-200 free cultural events in Dublin City and in the Greater Dublin area. Gigs, Festivals, Talks, Lectures, Exhibitions and much more for all age groups were included. After 600 editions, the Dublin Event Guide was semi-retired and now continues in a new format.

The Dublin Event Guide is a non commercial initiative and is published by Joerg Steegmueller, it has more than 24,000 readers. Instead of a weekly e-mail, there is now an e-mail only when significant events happen and you can subscribe for free on the right here -->>

This site contains the newest edition below and is updated as soon as it is completed (check the date!). But even if there is no new edition here, you probably find some event information on the Dublin Event Guide Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/DublinEventGuide!

The newest Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) below was posted on 04 February 2023:


Dublin Event Guide 796: Will I be replaced soon? – Richmond Barracks St. Brigid Fair, Brigit Bank Holiday

Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)

Will I be replaced soon?

Richmond Barracks St. Brigid Fair, Brigit Bank Holiday

Hey, how are you?

Have you heard about ChatGPT? It is currently mentioned everywhere. (…at least in all the media channels that I read.) ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) interface that can write all sorts of text for you. I played around with it during the week and WOW! It is soooo powerful and at the same time soo spooky (because it is so smart!)

I tried to get ChatGPT to write a book for me. And within a few minutes, I didn’t just have a book outline, a list of suggested chapters and a catchy book title, no, I even had some of the content for most chapters written by this AI interface.

It was a bit repetitive, relatively simple in structure, but definitely usable as a framework. Really really interesting and promising. ChatGPT is currently still free during the trial period, but I am sure it will cost something soon, so if you are interested, try it out as soon as possible on chat.openai.com/

Just for fun, I asked the interface to write an introduction for the weekly Dublin Event Guide and this is the result:

“Welcome to the Dublin Event Guide! Your ultimate source for discovering the best free events happening in Dublin each week. With over 24000 subscribers, you’re in great company and have access to the latest happenings in the city. Get ready to experience everything from live music to outdoor festivals, cultural events and more. Let’s dive in and see what exciting events are taking place this week!

In this edition of the Dublin Event Guide, we’ve curated a list of the top free events happening around the city. From art exhibitions to outdoor movie screenings and everything in between, there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re a local resident or just visiting, make sure to check out these fantastic events and enjoy all that Dublin has to offer. Don’t forget to share this newsletter with your friends and family, and spread the word about these amazing free events. We hope to see you out and about, making memories and enjoying all that Dublin has to offer. Happy event-ing!”

What do you thinK? Should I watch my back or a robot will take over my role soon! :-D

Donations in February: 
EUR 174

(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.

The great people that donated last week were Anne, Emer Maria, Michael, Catherine, Lee, Sinead, John, Anne, Grainne, Kelly, Edward, Deirdre, Catherine, Niamh + somebody who paid by Apple Pay to Revolut. You guys ROCK!! :-) Your donation will keep the Dublin Event Guide alive and will motivate me to continue week after week.I appreciate you and your support!

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! If your funds are limited, but you still want to help, you can buy a virtual coffee for just EUR 3. 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.)

+++ “Monumental Ireland” – photo exhibition captures the beauty of Ireland’s ancient past
On show just from 08-12 Feb, this photo exhibition in Printworks at Dublin Castle offers new perspectives on Ireland’s ancient monuments. The exhibition highlights both the resilience of these monuments and their vulnerability.
The exhibition is curated by the National Monuments Service (NMS) in partnership with the Office of Public Works (OPW). It includes over 100 images and 7 videos and features a remarkable new video of the world-renowned Winter Solstice phenomenon at Newgrange passage tomb, captured in 2021.
Admission is free. www.gov.ie/en/publication/20ded-monumental-ireland/ (The clever people from the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage unfortunately forgot to share with us the opening times, so I would suggest to assume that the exhibition is open from 10:00-17:00.)

+++ 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! :-)

+++ Discover Dublin Docklands App
Dublin City has a new app that allows us to discover iconic Dublin landmarks such as the famine statues, the CHQ building and more.
The app is available to download for free via doorsintodocklands.com/
After you got the app, you can point your phone at the landmarks and this will prompt the related images, videos and stories to pop up.
The app uses Augmented Reality (AR), a mix of 3D graphics, animation and audio, to immerse users in the story of the city.
Several colourful characters from history will also appear in AR to tell their tales. These include Captain Bligh who surveyed Dublin Bay in the 1800s and Maggie Doyle, who was a docker’s daughter.

+++ Housing Unlocked Exhibition
The “Housing Unlocked” exhibition is described as a celebration of innovation, optimism and imagination. Eight architect-led proposals will be presented that are intended to unlock the housing potential in our villages, towns and cities.

The exhibition will be open from 14 Oct-18 Dec and from 03-17 Feb (Tues-Fri: 12:00-17:00, Sat: 14:00-17:00). It will take place in the former Science Gallery in Pearse Street (Naughton Institute of TCD). Admission is free. housingunlocked.ie/
