Valentine’s Day in Dublin: Here’s something for everybody!

Valentine’s Day in Dublin is one of the most exciting events to look forward to. The city is all red, pink, and full of hearts and you can’t help but adore all of the lights and decor. But, if you are someone who does not have a date for 14th Feb, we are here to (sort of) play the cupid. 

One of the best parts about spending Valentine’s day in Dublin is how beautifully the city has you covered. It has something to offer everyone. If you are looking forward to meeting someone special in the upcoming weeks, here are a few speed dating events that you might find useful. Here’s the list with all the details.

Pre-Valentine’s Speed Dating (age:40-50)

Date: 12th February 2024

Time: 8 pm- 10 pm

Where: The 51 Bar


Fees: €27.00


The best part about this event has to be the date. Imagine meeting someone two days prior to Valentine’s Day in Dublin and then having an adventurous day out with them on the actual day. It’s also organized by an official dating company who have been in business for over 17 years. They claim to give a one-of-a-kind experience and maybe that’s just what we need after a long and tiring January.

Valentine’s Fluid Speed Dating

Date: 16th February 2024

Time: 6:30 pm- 10 pm

Where: The Hendrick Smithfield


Fees: €15.00


If you are someone tired and fed up with the hook-up culture and looking to find love, this might be the one for you. This special event, for people who identify bisexual, pansexual, or fluid, is one of a kind for two reasons. One, representation, and second, the emphasis on the finding love part. It is also the second-cheapest event on this list, might I add.

Speed Dating Dublin (age: 24-30) (post valentine’s day in dublin)

Date: 1st March 2024

Time: 8 pm- 10 pm

Where: Rody Bolands


Fees: €27.00


This event comes with a system so there is no need to worry about ‘how would it possibly work’. Once registered for the event, the ladies are given tables to sit around while the men have to make rotations every five minutes. At the end of it, everybody is given a checklist to mark the people they vibed with and the results are sent within 24 hours. If you are someone who likes a well-organised event, this one seems to fit that bill.

Valentine’s Speed Dating and After Party

Date: 14th February 2024

Time: 8 pm- 10 pm

Where: The Odeon


Fees: €0.00


This is another Valentine’s Day special event in Dublin which piqued our interest. Since this gathering will be held at the Odeon, you will have the perfect ambience to have a romantic date. This event also falls on the day of Valentine’s Day and the best part about it? The after party. You get to meet a few interesting people AND have a fun night with them…sounds like a deal!

Valentine’s Singles Night (added mini speed dating)

Date: 10th February 2024

Time:  7:30 pm onwards

Where: Harcourt Bar and Garden Lounge


Fees: €29.93


If you are single and not ready to mingle but really want to enjoy the day, this one sounds like the right fit for you. The party is accompanied by a quick speed-dating set up and the location is pretty accessible via Luas. The lighting and music at Harcourt Bar and Garden Lounge is really  something to look forward to and that’s something we are forever excited about.
