The Best Of This Week's Dublin Events- Week Commencing 08.01.18

Next Post Previous Post


Hey guys, welcome to my first post in a new weekly series on the blog sharing the very best of all that the amazing city of Dublin has to offer.

There’s SO much going on in this little city but events are often poorly advertised or not advertised at all so I’m hoping to bridge that gap and get you guys out there making the most of all the exciting things on offer.

If you have any feedback on the format of this post or, any feedback at all about sharing events please let me know… this is a new project for me and I really want to make sure I’m getting the info out there in the best way possible.

Hope you love it! xx
