It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! That includes all my single brethren because, after all, self love is important too! As with any other Friday night, there’s tonnes of cool events on tonight in Dublin but since it’s cupid’s birthday, Babylon Radio’s brought you tonight’s top 5 events with a romantic spin! From gigs, céílís, pub crawls and more, you’re sure to find something fun to do for V-Day! Want details? Check out the events below!
What better way to show that special someone that you love them other than a night of music and craic? Or better yet, what better way to show love to yourself with Craic Boy Mental, Whip Girl, and Uwmami coming to you this Valentine’s eve with some cracker tunes. They’ll be performing some stellar songs including Polo Is Life, Irish 2Pac, Young Gowl and more!
Craic Boy Mental a.k.a ‘hook machine’ is known for oddity, creativity, and multiple personalities so you know the show’s going to be entertaining! If creativity and energy are your idea of the perfect Valentine’s night, click here to book your tickets!
Ever want to take Valentine’s Day and make it more Celtic? No? Well then maybe you should! LoSt LaNe is offering up some Gaelic gaiety with an Irish college style céílí and DJ set for couples and singles! For those of you who’ve never attended a céílí, it’s basically a super Irish dancing party with set dances you’ll learn as you go! Whether you’re bringing a friend or a partner this dance is sure to be a treat! Plus a céílí it’s just about as Irish as you can get before you start hiding pots of gold at the end of rainbows. For more information check out the Facebook event here, and book your tickets here!
Love and Hip Hop is the show that delivered Cardi B to our longing hands, ears, and soul, so why not pay your respects by checking out Love Hip Hop <3 at Bloody Mary’s! While this event isn’t Cardi B-related (that was mostly for dramatic effect) it is a celebration of all things hip hop! Whether you’re a single pringle this Valentine’s Day or you’re lovey-dovey with your honey, Bloody Mary’s is offering up a cheap and cheerful night equipped with a Traffic Light Party, raffle, and giveaways! Plus DALY will be performing with his full band, with support from Craig Cooney Music, Jordan Wilson, and tunes from DJ Jamal Cali from 11:30pm till late! If you want to be like e-40 and go stupid this Valentine’s, book your tickets here!
All my single ladies, and gentlemen, if you’re looking for some adventure and amusement this Valentine’s eve, what better way to find it than a pub crawl! This event is designed for single people to meet other singles and have some craic while exploring some of Dublin’s finest pubs! You’ll be following the your guide to a variety of pubs and clubs, you’ll meet tonnes of cool, new people, and you’ll have some challenges to complete along the way! While drinks aren’t included in your ticket price, you’ll be able to buy as much as you like. If you’re flying solo and you’re feeling a little bit ‘YOLO’, this is your kind of Valentine’s night!

A night at the cinema is a chill, romantic, and cute Valentine’s date idea! Plus at The Light House Cinema there’s a bar so you can drink too! Why not get you and your sweetie some wine and recline until showtime where you can enjoy a showing of The Room or The Lost Boys? After all, the cinema is a classic date spot for a reason. You get to cuddle up, watch a film, and enjoy the show together! Plus, what revs up the romance better than the dulcet tones of Tommy Wiseau? If this sounds like the event to slay on Valentine’s Day, you can get tickets here!
