8 actually good things to do in Dublin this Valentine's Day

Pass the prosecco.

SO VALENTINES’ DAY is coming up and you’re all alone.

Why not do something fun, whether you’re single or attached?

1. The Bernard Shaw Valentine’s Flea market


Head up to the Shaw this weekend for the best in vintage, craft, and music buys. More info here.

ODEON cinemas in Coolock, Limerick, Newbridge, Point Village, Stillorgan and Waterford are showing the classic on Valentine’s day at 8.15pm for just a fiver. Bargain.

3. Have a Casablanca Balentines at MVP

MVP is transforming itself into Casablanca’s Rick’s Cafe on Valentines. They’ll show the movie silently in the background while you indulge in some cava, burbon, bubbles, nibbles and relaxed vibes.

4. Spend the evening with Ryan and Wine


The Lighthouse cinema pulls out the stops every Valentine’s day. This year, you can sit back and enjoy a whole day of Ryan Gosling movies with all the wine and red velvet cupcakes you can knock back. Sounds ideal.

The schedule is:

5. Shred Your Ex in the Liquor Rooms


The Liquor Rooms do a savage cocktail, and they also are absolutely savage themselves. Their Shred Your Ex event is being held on Saturday and basically all you have to do is bring a photo of your ex to get free admission.

They’ll also have a dumpster swap shop to exchange old crap gifts from your idiot ex, and the playlist promises to be cathartic as hell.

Bitter, you?

6. Climb Croke Park

Fancy seeing Valentine’s day at dusk? Croke Park can offer you a special version of its Etihad Skyline at Dusk tour from Sunday to Valentine’s Day.

You get a great view of the capital’s sky line as it turns from dusk to dark, and we can already smell the various proposals that will be happening here.

7. Drown in bottomless prosecco

Gather up the gals and get down to Beeftro in Dublin for their bottomless prosecco from €15 per person. You might even get some food, too.

8. Go dog speed dating

Pupp on Clanbrassil street is hosting a dog-friendly speed dating event on Valentine’s day from 8pm, but unfortunately humans have to be involved too. Female tickets are all sold out so LADS, what are you waiting for?
