Dog’s Day Out, Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon Gigs,
Big Flea, lots of events for kids

 

 

Hi all!

This weekend I am away visiting some family in the UK, so I had to decide if I will spend some of my Friday evening away searching for a few free events for you or if I will take a break this week. I decided to do BOTH. :-) You would probably survive without a Dublin Event Guide list of free events for a week, but (free) events are fun and life is meant to be full of fun and enjoyment, right? So here is a list that is a little shorter than in other weeks, but that still has a some interesting thing for you to do.

If you like getting this list (even when I am on holidays), please help a little as described below. It doesn’t cost you a cent!
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 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!
