Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) No. 604

Dear Dublin Event Guide Follower!!

Because so much is happening in Dublin, here is another Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) and with a bit of luck, there will even be a third one in a row next week. ;-) LOTS of festivals are happening this week, from Gospel Music via Prawns and Drawing to Science or Pets, there is definitely something for everyone!! It is really a super busy weekend!:-O

What you have in front of you is the simplified (new) Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). It is a long list with event headlines and then links so that you can check out the details yourself. I hope it works for you. Because I am sending more newsletters now again, I will ask you for your help again and it is super simple:
Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and click on the ad banner that is at the very top of the page! If you don’t see an ad banner there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and then do the clicking. ;-) It is just a few cents that I will get, but if enough people click on it, it might do the job.

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. ;-)

Saturday Events (18 May)

Saturday is National Drawing Day and there is also the popular Mind Body Experience Exhibition in the RDS and the Dublin Prawn Festival happening (they realised that the St. Patrick’s Day weekend is a bad choice of a weekend for this great event in Howth).
