A day out in Dublin does not need to break the bank after all!

The sun finally decided to shine in Ireland for more than 24 hours which got me – and my significant other – looking for things to do in and around Dublin that weren’t going to break the bank and which could add another layer of excitement and activity to the summer days. Having reviewed a number of papers I finally reverted to my most trusted source of information, you guessed it – the internet – to find if such a thing as a free day out truly still existed!

I was surprised and delighted to find that there are some great free events currently on the go in Dublin! Below is a small list from an initial search and which promise to be excellent and even better – free!!


  • Loose Trad Sessions – view more info here
  • Art for Arts Sake – find out more about this here
  • Dublin Water Safety Surf Open Day – great day out, see more
  • Dublin Port River Festival – fun and sun on the River Liffey, for more information see here


The above are just a few of the free events happening in and around Dublin over the coming weeks and months and well worth considering!!
