My top 14 things to do for valentine’s day this year without a cramped restaurant or greasy man selling roses in sight… enjoy!! x


Hit up Bray bowl for some BYO bowling followed by an epic pizza feast in Platform Pizza… my kind of date!


Catch Booka Brass with Jess Kav & BARQ take on Dublin hotspot Tramline for an alternative Valentine’s soulful special on Feb 14th. Doors from 8PM with bands from 8:30PM followed by club DJ until late.


Go to The Hideout for some competitive fun & avail of their BYO offer (€5 PP) to take it up a notch… that expensive vino will ease the pain of loosing, promise! The, once you’ve had your fill of pool head next door to the back of The Ramen Bar where they serve the most epic eats with lots of secluded booths where you can make up & make out.


Hit the Dart with a bottle of vino… or two (as Cathal says ‘its better to be looking at it than looking for it’) & head to Dun Laoghaire. Once there invest in some deliciously steamy bags of chips & hit the harbour for the a fun date with a twist.

Find a spot to dangle your legs & let the conversation flow as easily as the wine. Eagle eyes will notice that I’ve previously suggested doing this in my ‘Dublin Micro Adventures’ post but it’s too good not to suggest here as well… I love this date!


If a daytime date is more your scene why not make a picnic and rent a tandem bike in the Phoenix Park and explore the ground with the one you love? Because nothing says I love you more than impractical shared commitment!


For those looking for an alternative Valentine’s night, ‘Bad Romance’ with singer-songwriter Lisa O’Neill in The National Gallery is the gig for you.  As part of the public programme for our exhibition Frederic William Burton: For the Love of Art, O’Neill was invited to participate in a special project entitled Bad Romance. Folklore, ballads and storytelling were the inspiration behind many of the artworks in this exhibition, and many deal with the theme of unrequited love, heartbreak and bad romance – a recurring theme in Victorian art.


Savour the work of one of Ireland’s most masterful singer-songwriters, Declan O’Rourke on the most romantic night of the year.


Enjoy Magical Mozart by Candlelight in The Pavilions Theatre. This sumptuous fully costumed show immerses us in the wonderful music and the classical baroque world of one of the world’s greatest romantic composers.


Head to The Sugar Club for a screening of what is arguably the best movie of all time: True Romance. They have a special screening for the night that’s in it & a full bar on offer.


Celebrate with a unique dining experience at Airfield House serenaded by the music of a bygone era, sip rose-pink prosecco and enjoy a selection of our homemade Hors D’Oeuvres. Be enthralled by a reading of romantic love letters written by Trevor Overends and his wife Lily. Stroll through the candlelit walled garden and enjoy a 4-course meal.


Get dressed up for a St.Valentine’s masquerade ball in aid of a good cause.


Book yourselves a bed or a couch in the surroundings of The Stella Theatre’s old word romance. Snuggle up to watch the hotly reviewed alternative romance movie, The Shape Of water.


Bring your significant other on a whiskey tasting tour– Soak up the local flavour during a guided whiskey tour of Ireland’s capital city. Meander past landmark destinations like Trinity College and Grafton Street, and sample 5 exquisite whiskeys, savouring smooth flavours that call to mind clear mountain streams and stately oak forests.
