Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) No. 603


Dear Dublin Event Guide Follower!! ;-)

Despite the official “retirement” of the weekly Dublin Event Guide newsletter since December, I am posting every week a long list of events on the Dublin Event Guide Facebook Page and I also promised that there will be occasional e-mails if a lot is happening in Dublin and this weekend (and probably also the next two weekends) the list is so long that I just HAVE to share it with you. 

[quads id=1]

The e-mail below is not in the style that you were used to, it is very much a simplified way of just a long list of events with some basic information and a link to the event website or Facebook page, but I hope it will help you nevertheless. It is not a  comprehensive list of events, just a selection of some great 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. ;-)
