Dublin is a small but lively town and that’s why we love it so much. At Oscars International English School Dublin we ‘recommend culture’ and we let our students know what’s going on in the great city (aka town). This week we have a look at three events that are happening near Dublin City Centre and further afield over the next few days.
Kehoe’s is one of our favourtie pubs in Dublin and one we visit quite often with our First Thursday Thristy crew. They are now doing comedy. Every week in Kehoe’s we have the very best headliners in Ireland doing a 20 minute set for FREE! We also always have support acts, mixing from headliners trying new material, to the hottest up and comers in the Dublin and Irish comedy scene.
You can experience the electric atmosphere, best Guinness in Dublin, and some of Ireland’s best club comics working on their material. It’s all very laid back and friendly and sure if you don’t understand the jokes you can always have a few pints anyway!
Go and check them out upstairs in Kehoe’s Pub every Monday night from 8pm, show starts at 8.30pm
Open House Dublin lets you explore Ireland’s best architecture. There are over 150 free tours & events across the city and many of them involve buildings that aren’t usually accessible to the public. There are some strange trips, including one to Dublin Port and a tour of University College Dublin which was built when those in power feared student rioting. The majority of the tours are on a first come first served basis so just turn up during the listed opening times and join the next available tour. There ares ome that you need to book for though. Best thing to do is check out their website right here.
OK so this is a little out there and you might need to be good at reading subtitles but why not give it a try. The Goethe Institut promotes German culture in Ireland and they are well-known for hosting coll and innovative events. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. To commemorate the occasion the Goethe-Institut Irland presents a short series of films about the Wall and its demise.
The third film in the series November Days – Voices and Choices mingles a kaleidoscope of entertainment images and news footage, shot from the streets, clubs and restaurants in Berlin one year after the fall of the Berlin Wall and it is showing this coming Wednesday.
