Tall Ship in Dublin, Festival del Dia de los Muertos, Alternative Halloween Market, Craft Festival, Market on the Green
Now that Halloween is over, it is only going in one direction! The next major stop is Christmas and soon the first Christmas-related events will take place. But don’t expect any interesting or even amazing Christmas Markets in Dublin! :-O Regrettably, Dublin City Council or Failte Ireland have no interest in organising anything like that.
Nevertheless, I am confident that I will find some other interesting events for you over the next 8 weeks, so come back week after week to make sure you won’t miss out!
If you like free events and if the Dublin Event Guide helps you find them, I very much need and appreciate your support and it just through a click, which is free, really easy to do and only takes 30 seconds of your time. It keeps the Dublin Event Guide going, so it is relevant…if you like free events.
This is how the support works and it is really super easy:
Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and at the top you will find the sentence “Is this what you were looking for?”. Right below that sentence you should find a rectangular ad. Please click on it!
The ad might change every time you open/refresh the page, so I can’t tell you what it is promoting. And if you don’t see an ad there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) Thanks!
If you click on the ad, I get between 5 and 30 cent. That is not much, but if enough people help, it will do the job to cover the cost to keep the Dublin Event Guide going. Some people have asked me for the Dublin Event Guide PayPal link for direct donations and here it is: www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide
And now we come to 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! The market events that take place every week are only posted on the website at www.dublineventguide.com
