Hi all!

The weather forecast promises another super weekend with temperatures of 22 degrees today and 20 tomorrow and not a drop of rain in sight. Perfect weather for a great weekend exploring free events and did I find free events or what? ;-) There is a looong list in this post and I hope you will enjoy one, some or all of them! ;-)

And if these event lists help you, then tell one or two people about them and also please help me to keep them going by doing this completely free 30 second “trick”.

Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and click on the rectangular ad that is shown at the very top of the page! If you don’t see an ad there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) It is just a few cents that I will get, but if enough people click on it – and it only takes a few seconds! -, it might do the job to cover the cost for sending the Dublin Event Guide. Thanks! Some people have asked me for the Dublin Event Guide PayPal link for direct donations and here it is: www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide

And there is something else I want to tell you this week. You might remember that in the past I mentioned the course platform Udemy a few times. Udemy has about 60,000 courses that are all provided online. There are language courses, web design courses, public speaking, personal development, music lessons, photography classes, bitcoin, stock trading and a lot more. There is hardly any topic they don’t have a course on. Only two or three times every year they provide a super special discount and sell nearly all courses for just EUR 9.99. You only have a few days, then the special offer is over. If you want to learn something new in autumn or winter then NOW is the time to buy the courses for the best price and you also help the Dublin Event Guide, click on this link or the banner below: Udemy Special Offer Link

 

Best prices of the season! Starting at €9.99.

And here are some of this weekend’s free events. All events are sorted by start time, but watch out for the few events that have a “++” in front of them, the are particularly recommended. ;-) ALL events in this list are free, but some require booking!
