Restorative Yoga

We all love a slow start to our day, why not try a slow start to your week?

Poitín

Poitín Masterclass 

Poitín is an integral part of Irish identity and history. Bar 1661 in Dublin is the only cocktail bar on the island of Ireland that specialises in this classic Irish delicacy.

Songs

Irish Language Art Song Project

Another thing that Irish people should have enormous pride in is the Irish language. Even if it is mainly spoken in a few Gaeltacht regions on the west coast of Ireland, it is the oldest vernacular written language in Western Europe, and has survived complete colonisation by the British Empire. Connect with Irish culture and celebrate the Irish language through an exhibition  of fifty newly commissioned Irish language art songs in the National Concert Hall. Experience the exquisite sounds of traditional Irish instruments combined with Gaelic lyricism.

Where: National Concert Hall, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, Ireland

When: 7.30 – 9pm

Price: €17.50 here
