Get out in Dublin this weekend. 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.

Love D8, St. Catherine’s Church, Saturday 29th February – 11am – 4pm – FREE

Just a short stroll from the school, The Liberties is one of Dublin’s most colourful neighbourhoods and for the last few years groups and business owners have come together to celebrate its unique charm. The venue for this year’s community fair is St Catherine’s Church on Thomas Street, with events running from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 29th February.

Over 100 community groups, clubs, schools, businesses and agencies, LOVE D8 will transform St Catherine’s Church into a bustling market-style community fair celebrating all that’s great about Dublin 8!

What’s planned:
Over 100 exhibitors showcasing their activities across a series of zones: HealthyD8, LearningD8, Clean&GreenD8, WorkingD8, CulturalD8 and CommunityD8

The public can explore all that The Liberties has to offer: get information on clubs and activities, learn about local schools and workplaces, discover how to get active and involved and much, much more

Raiders, Traders & Settlers in Viking Ireland, National Museum, Kildare St – Friday 21st Feb – 11- 11.45am – FREE

Did you know that the City of Dublin was established by the Vikings? Take our Viking Ireland tour to learn more about what the archaeology of Dublin can tell us about Viking raiders, traders and settlers. See the skeleton of a Viking warrior, examine the beautiful oval brooches worn by Scandinavian women and discover ice skates made of bone. This museum is just five minutes from our city centre campus and is well-worth the visit.
