If you’re penny pinching around this time of year in preparation for Christmas, like us, then keep reading to find things to do in Dublin that won’t cost you a thing.
Temple Bar Gallery
Nestled in the heart of Temple Bar, this art gallery is home to some of Ireland’s most intriguing exhibitions. The current exhibition is called, ‘Huddle Tests’ by Rhona Byrne. It’ll be on until the 7th of November. It’s a great way to experience some Irish culture and not spend money. The Dublin Art Book Fair will take place from the 19th to the 22nd of November. This too will be free of charge and again will allow you to indulge in culture.
An obvious one, but often one that’s overlooked, are the grounds of Trinity College which are over 400 years old. To wander around the cobble stones and admire the architecture costs nothing, so hop to it. Don’t feel that you have to pay for a trip back in time, the buildings in Trinity have many stories hidden in the brick-work. You might even stumble across a history student who could give you a quick tour.
