6 Things To Do In Dublin This Spring
Spring has sprung, sort of, so it’s time to shake off the shackles of Winter and hot foot it into Dublin Town for some hijinks. Here are a few activities that are sure to shake off the cobwebs, and who better to tell us than Dublin Town themselves!
1. Dine in Dublin 2015
Foodies rejoice as ‘Dine in Dublin’ is back for its 6th year. It runs for one week from the 23rd of February until the 1st of March. It is a celebration of Dublin’s culinary prowess. From North to South the city has a delectable array of restaurants, each of which has something to tantalise your taste buds. Take a look at http://dineindublin.ie/ for more details on events and a list of participating restaurants.
2. Craft Beer and Pizza Pairing
There are few better combos than pizza and beer, except of course for fancy pizza and fancy beer. On the 23rd of February Gotham café is hosting a ‘Craft Beer Experience’ (part of Dine in Dublin) where Cameron Wallace of Cork’s ‘Eight Degrees Brewery’ will be sharing his pearls of wisdom regarding which craft beer goes best with which pizza. For €20 you’ll get a pizza, a beer and you’ll never pair the wrong beer with the wrong pizza again, which let’s face it, is priceless. For more info check out http://dineindublin.ie/
3. Breaking Dad – Gaiety Theatre
If it’s a spot of theatre you’re after, why not check out Paul Howard’s (Ross O’ Carroll Kelly) ‘Breaking Dad?’ This is showing in the Gaiety Theatre from the 16th to the 28th of February and promises you a night of first class entertainment as Ross and his Southside posse get up to their usual antics.

4. Dublin Whiskey Festival

The ‘Dublin Whiskey Festival’ runs from the 16th to the 21st of February and over 20 venues across the city will be participating. Hot toddies and Irish coffees will be the order of the day and will be sure to warm the cockles of your heart. For further details keep an eye on Facebook.com/GreatIrishBeverages.
