Event Guide for free Events in Greater Dublin

The "Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)" is Dublin's most popular event magazine that focuses on the vast amount of cultural events for no admission charges. For more than 11 years it was a weekly e-mail magazine that listed, described and recommended 170-200 free cultural events in Dublin City and in the Greater Dublin area. Gigs, Festivals, Talks, Lectures, Exhibitions and much more for all age groups were included. After 600 editions, the Dublin Event Guide was semi-retired and now continues in a new format.

The Dublin Event Guide is a non commercial initiative and is published by Joerg Steegmueller, it has more than 24,000 readers. Instead of a weekly e-mail, there is now an e-mail only when significant events happen and you can subscribe for free on the right here -->>

This site contains the newest edition below and is updated as soon as it is completed (check the date!). But even if there is no new edition here, you probably find some event information on the Dublin Event Guide Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/DublinEventGuide!

The newest Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) below was posted on 14 December 2019:

Christmas Market at Dublin Castle, Farmleigh Christmas Events, Christmas Market on the Green, Dun Laoghaire Christmas Market

 

 

Hi all!

The Christmas Market at Dublin Castle is open since Thursday and will be open until 22 Dec (12:00-20:00 every day) and you will find some pictures on the Dublin Event Guide Facebook Page. The next thing people asked me was “And? How is it?” If you read this Dublin Event Guide regularly, you know that I am a big Christmas Market Fan and that I also want a really nice long-term Christmas Market in Dublin, so with that in mind, here is my honest assessment:

It is a really nice Christmas Market in a beautiful surrounding and it has HUGE potential AND you should go there. BUT, it is definitely not perfect yet. The market is much too small, the goods being sold are less Christmassy and crafty than they should be and the “food village” (in a big plastic tent) could be done much better. But why am I suggesting you still go? Well, only if there are plenty of visitors it will survive the first year. So, visit the market, but make your opinion known! If I can, I will put a survey together for you to answer and will send the results to the organisers. Watch out for this survey in one of the upcoming Dublin Event Guide newsletters.

A Gospel Christmas At Gardiner Street!
For many years, I am involved with the Gardiner Street Gospel Choir, looking after sound and all technical matters. So occasionally I am cheeky and post a non-free event notice here if I am part of the event. And the event I need to tell you about is our Christmas Concert on Thur 19 Dec at 20:00 in Gardiner Street Church. It will be brilliant and it has been a sell-out success every year since we started it some years ago. We have a few tickets left (EUR 15/12, under 12 year olds are free but need a ticket) and you can buy tickets here: tickets.thegsgc.com

Christmas Help for the Dublin Event Guide needed!
The Dublin Event Guide is completely free to you! But there are bills for sending it and hosting the website etc that have to be paid and I am looking for your help. The great thing is that you don’t have to spend any of your own money, all I need is a a few clicks or taps. Super easy and fast! And afterwards you should feel great, because I do REALLY appreciate your help! Your few clicks keep the Dublin Event Guide alive! :-)

This is how the support works and it is really super easy:
Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and at the top you will find the sentence “Is this what you were looking for?”. Right below that sentence you should find a rectangular ad. Please click on it!
The ad might change every time you open/refresh the page, so I can’t tell you what it is promoting. And if you don’t see an ad there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) Thanks!
If you click on the ad, I get between 5 and 30 cent. That is not much, but if enough people help, it will do the job to cover the cost to keep the Dublin Event Guide going. Some people have asked me for the Dublin Event Guide PayPal link for direct donations and here it is: www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide

And now we come to some of this weekend’s free events. All events are sorted by start time, but watch out for the few events that have a “++” in front of them, the are particularly recommended. ;-) ALL events in this list are free, but some require booking! The market events that take place every week are only posted on the website at www.dublineventguide.com
