Christmas on Merrion Square, Pride Community Day, People’s Art Exhibition, Dun Laoghaire Christmas Market, Market on the Green

 

 

Hi all!

The Dublin Christmas Markets website is officially live again www.DublinChristmasMarkets.com If you didn’t get a chance yet to check it out, have a look, because there are LOTS of markets happening from now until Christmas.
Christmas FM is also on air again (on their www.ChristmasFM.com website and on FM105.2) AND this weekend December starts.

So with all these indicators, there is NO denying that Christmas is near. :-D But I know that there are some people out there that are not the biggest Christmas Fans. For them the next four weeks will be tough, but I can promise you that in one month from today, Christmas will already be forgotten again. :-O And maybe, just maybe, you might see occasionally some positives in that Christmas cheer. After all, it is better than any sort of grumpiness.

This “Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)” will have events for Christmas-Lovers and for Christmas-NotSoMuchLovers. So there should be something in it for everyone.

To keep all that going your help, support and love is MUCH appreciated. And helping is really easy and doesn’t cost you a cent! Just a few clicks/taps that take less than 30 seconds and you will have helped hugely! Your few clicks keep the Dublin Event Guide alive! :-)

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
