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 17 August 2019:

Hi!

Last weekend was mad! More than 44,000 people saw the Dublin Event Guide post on the Facebook Page. “Normal” is about 2-3% of the total Followers, that would be less than 3k. Good is around 10% (8k). The Dublin Event Guide usually reaches 12-20k, but 44k is just amazing. :-) Only problem is that I have NO clue why so many were reached, so it is unfortunately not repeatable. Darn! :-O

And something else happened! I made a mistake when adding the link for the donations and because of that the link didn’t bring you anywhere. So despite the 44,000 people that were reached, the total donations was less than EUR 15. Shock!!
If you clicked the link last week, Thank you and also apologies for sending you to nowhere! And no matter if you did click last week or not, PLEASE help this week! I checked the link and need your help now to make up for the huge shortfall from last week. It doesn’t cost you a cent!

Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and click on the rectangular ad that is shown at the very top of the page! If you don’t see an ad there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) It is just a few cents that I will get, but if enough people click on it – and it only takes a few seconds! -, it might do the job to cover the cost for sending the Dublin Event Guide. Thanks! Some people have asked me for the Dublin Event Guide PayPal link for direct donations and here it is: www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide

And here are 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!
