“Good things happen when you least expect them” Not every weekend needs to be planned to have fun. If you’re up for some spontaneity or seek an adventure that’s straight off the cuff then Dublin Bikes are definitely a good option. Hop on & Hop off anywhere in the city centre as bike stations are located all around the city and the greater Dublin area. Bicycles are ideal for exploring the busy streets and cramped laneways of Dublin, especially on a sunny spring afternoon and all for as little as €5 for a 3 day ticket.

The Easter Rising from the 24th – 29th of April 1916 was a pivotal moment in Irish Independence. 2016 marked the centenary of this historical event and a huge effort was made by the Irish Government in commemoration of those who fought in a bloody battle against the British Empire that reduced the city to ruins. Although Easter is on the 16th &17th of April this year the 1916 Walking Tour runs throughout the year and will be running over the Easter weekend. Presented by the co – author of the book the Easter Rising Lorcan Collins will bring you to some of the most important historical landmarks across Dublin associated with the lead up and aftermath of the Rebellion. Along the way he gives a detailed account that provides for a unique understanding of an event that helped lay the foundations of an Irish Republic.
