Want to see more of Dublin but citing lack of funds as an excuse to keep you from getting out there? Here are some amazingly fun ways that you can socialise in Dublin for a tenner or less.
Take a trip to The Science Gallery to check out whichever epic (& free) interactive exhibition they happen to have on then head to The Pav for a pint or two to discuss the wisdom you just collected.
Hit Bruxelle’s hugely popular open mic night, ‘Zodiac Sessions’ which run every Wednesday & enjoy some of the amazing talent that this city has to offer. Entry is free so use your tenner to get a drink (or two) or, split a bottle of vino.
Hit one of Dublin’s amazing weekend markets such at the Dun Laoghaire Park market or, Marlay Park market… browse the stalls, soak up the atmosphere & grab a bite at one of their inexpensive food stands.
Take a picnic up to the Dublin mountains for an epic outdoor adventure… Sean & I did this before & wandered for ages before cooking beans on an open fire and sipping on a flask of tea, perfection.
Stretch your art legs by taking a trip to the ever wonderful Irish Museum Of Modern Art who always have delightful (& free) exhibitions on then reward yourself with a trip to one of Dublin 8’s many amazing cafes; Legit, Two Pups or Container Coffee.
Get into the Irish Fim Institute for one of their free lunchtime ‘Archive At Lunchtime’ screenings before hitting a nearby cafe for lunch; Umi Falafel, Simon’s Place or Sano Pizza will all see you well fed for that tenner.
Grab a bottle of prosecco, throw a picnic together and hit Stephen’s Green for a day of fun with your mates.
Get your friends to make a dish, gather all their pre-loved clothes & come together for a clothes swap and pot luck night. These nights in are so much fun AND, the swap means you’ll be going home with some new clothes, what’s not to love!?
Get to The Little Museum where they offer free entry every Thursday & follow it up with a cold one in Keogh’s on South Anne Street, sitting outside watching the world go by.
Rent a bike in The Phoenix Park and stop for ice cream along the way; a tandem bike will set you back €10 per hour or standard €5 per hour so I say get the tandem but your mate might be less convinced!
