Dublin Event Guides

Where to stay informed and get notified about events and things to do in Dublin, Ireland. Follow these sites on social media to never miss an opportunity to make most of your life or visit to Dublin.

Dublin City Council - Things To Do


This official site published by the city of Dublin has a variety of events by day, week, and month and is definitely worth a visit from time to time.

Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)


The largest and most comprehensive listing of free and almost free events in Dublin published weekly and sent out Friday late afternoon. The formatting of the website and email newsletter could be improved, especially when viewing on a mobile device, however the breadth and depth of things to do make this a MUST SUBSCRIBE.

Dublin Tourism Office – Events


The tourism office of Dublin has an event search and listings by category. In addition this is the best site to start researching and planning a vacation to Dublin, Ireland as it has a directory of links to places to stay, things to see and do, dining, and special travel offers. I just wish they had an email newsletter as well.

Dublin Town


The Dublin city marketing initiative “We are DublinTown” is designed for visitors as well as locals who are ready to get out and experience the best of Dublin. Their magazine-like site is full of personal stories about the businesses they promote across Dublin. Many of the top events, restaurants, shops, and cafes are regularly featured in their stories.



This big site of entertainment listings in Dublin and all around Ireland is a necessary addition to the list, even if I find it a bit busy and challenging to search in Dublin by date and category. It includes listings for Cinema, Music, Theatre, Comedy, and more but requires you to set up an account to track your favorite happenings (no email newsletter). They also have a several mobile apps for Android and iPhone.

Lovin Dublin


We all love Dublin, so it is nice to finally have a dedicated entertainment and culture online magazine that tells it like it is! The Lovin Dublin site covers every topic that you can imagine. Their bloggers write about TV, music, sports, dining out, the news, Irish culture, and what makes Dublin special. They cover it all.

Meetup (Dublin)


If you still haven't joined Meetup.com, now is the perfect time to connect with active Dubliners who are members of and run groups that meet face-to-face at places all over the city. It doesn't matter what age you are, interests you have, or hobbies you pursue, there is likely a Meetup group (or two or three) for you. While you have to register as a user to subscribe to their Weekly Calendar Email for Dublin, it is worth the effort. You do not have to join any groups right away to find out about upcoming events, whether a social get-together in a pub, outing to a cultural event, or outdoor activity. You can also download their mobile app to find out about Meetup events where ever you happen to be.

Sidewalk Safari


Traveling on foot around Dublin, prolific blogger Dr. J publishes her photo blog documenting the big events and hidden finds in Dublin. From festivals to restaurants to performance venues to nature walks to street art to Dublin architecture… Sidewalk Safari covers it all.

Totally Dublin


Pick up your free copy of Totally Dublin, if you can find one. I find it essential reading for restaurant and cafe reviews, music and entertainment listings, and feature articles on what makes Dublin totally Dublin (awesome that is!).
