Top 5 events for Wednesday 12th February

Halfway through the week and we’re already running out of steam.

But the team at Babylon prides itself in finding ways to keep you warm and happy. Between movies, eating tours, yoga, and comedy shows there’s plenty to do in Dublin tonight.

Here are a few ideas on how to enjoy your Wednesday night, and kick a bit of energy back into your week.
