We had a lovely visit to Dublin City FM to talk about all things InspireMe. But naturally all our conversations lead to events. And with so many great events happening in Dublin at Christmas we’ve put together a selection to keep you entertained over the festive season.

 

Lots to do in Dublin at Christmas

Take a break from the office and celebrate the Winter Solstice at the National Museum on Kildare St on Thursday 21st at 1pm. See how the shortest day of the year was marked in prehistoric Ireland. For more details see here.

Christmas Activity Trail at Collins Barracks

 

There are free Christmas activity trails for families at the NMI Decorative Arts and History Collins Barracks throughout December.  A perfect way to entertain the troops between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Find out more here.

 

Or for the green-fingered among us, head along to the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin. On Saturday the 23rd there will be a guided walk exploring the history, myths and superstitions surrounding Yuletide plants. More details here.
