Guide To Dublin Culture

For once staying up late in Dublin doesn’t have to be all about the beer and dancing (although, of course, there’s nothing stopping you doing that as well!). Dublin’s Culture sees museums, galleries, churches, historic buildings and more all open their doors for you to discover and adventure through.

Here is a selection of some of the best bits to tempt your intellectual palette.

Guide to Dublin Culture

Ingenious Ireland Guided Tours

Guided tours may seem a little kitsch nowadays, but it’s a good way to get a little bit of Dublin under your nails. This tour of the architecture, history and geology of the city – you could even learn a few things that most Dubliners don’t know!

Contemporary Music Centre

Here’s a chance to listen to the newest of new music in Ireland at the Contemporary Music Centre. There will be live acts and video screenings from Irish composers plus improv plus image and sounds works.

The Urban Rug

A unique project dealing with architecturally stunted areas by transforming them into socially interactive spaces. 

Bewley’s – Grafton Street

Ireland’s only lunchtime Theatre, need we say more? A bit of an institution is Bewley’s and a brilliant place to stop for a snack or dinner on any visit to Dublin. Enjoy the 6 beautiful stained glass windows while you watch jazz, comedy and cabaret! Just the thing to perk you up in your quest for culture.

Dublin Buddhist Centre

Head for the Dublin Buddhist Centre where you can recollect your karma with a spot of meditation. Good for frazzled culture vultures!

Christ Church Cathedral

Visit the stunning Christ Church Cathedral at any time and you will be awestruck by its majesty and beauty. A suitable background track is the Cathedral Choir and the Campanologists chiming out a few churchy tunes.

Natural History Museum – Merrion Street

For lovers of ancient bones and the story of life on Earth then try the Nocturnal Nature – Owls, Bats, Bugs and even Jellyfish event at the Natural History Museum. While you are up late find out what else is scurrying, scuttling, flying and even swimming in the dark.

Trinity College

The beautiful Trinity college is a must see. Marvel at the Great Court, get lost between the shelves of the Wren Library and tick it off the Dublin list. 

Merrion Square Open Art Exhibition

Not quite had your fill of art? Then head to Merrion Square and the Open Art Exhibition. This is a brilliant idea where more than 200 artists have their work displayed on the railings of the West, North and East side of the square for everyone to appreciate.

Tamp & Stitch

For a late night shopping experience with a twist visit Tamp & Stitch. You can browse the unique and eclectic range of clothes, jewellery and other arty items often while enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
