5 Things to Do This Week

29 June to 5 July 2020 – Time to explore again

As we enter Phase 3 of the roadmap for Ireland’s easing of the COVID-19 we have some suggestions for how to make the most of our freedom! This is our top 5 things to do this week.

ART: National Gallery of Ireland

We are so excited to hear that the National Gallery of Ireland is set to open the Millennium Wing, Rooms 1–5 (European art 1850–1950) this Monday. Feast your eyes on Claude Monet’s Argenteuil Basin with a Single Sailboat. Enjoy Pablo Picasso’s Still Life with a Mandolin. A perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon in Dublin.
