Things To Do In Dublin (22-12-14 – 28-12-14)

Well, it’s obviously not going to be epic. Go spend some time with your family for God’s sake. If you need a break, there’s a few ideas below. It’s always a good time to go to the movies actually, I tend to catch up on a few I missed over the next week.

A couple of new shows, with Pirates in the Kingdom of Enchantasia at Smock Alley and David McSavage at the Viking Theatre. There’s also some decent enough gigs, with Christy Moore and Something Happens and a few others to boot!
