Hello and Happy Friday to you all!
With the sun shining on us this week we have to go out and take the opportunity to spend time in the great outdoors, so this Sunday we will be found wandering the Phoneix Park - specifically the area surrounding the Magazine Fort. There are spectacular views from this area across to the Dublin Mountains - so it's perfect for a nice spot of painting or sketching. We will meet at the foot of the Fort - just by the exit from the Park to the Conyngham…Read on...

It's Friday again - how the time is flying! There was a call for a visit to the Chester Beatty Library for the past few weeks so it's off to Dublin Castle and the Chester Beatty we go this Sunday. It is a very interesting area, with the Dubh Linn gardens to explore if the weather is fine.

Well hello there!
It's Friday again, how the time flies. This Sunday we are going to keep it nice and central - seeing as the weather isn't the nicest! The RHA has some interesting new exhibits taking place so I'm sure there will be something for everyone!
Meeting at 2pm, inside the main door and back there again at 4pm. We will most likely go to a cafe on Baggott Street afterwards as the cafe in the RHA closes before we finish up.

This Sunday we are heading for Collins Barracks and the National Museum of Ireland - a place we have visited many times and always go back wanting more. The courtyard itself is amazing, the architecture beautiful and the exhibitions always interesting - with the most recent Irish High Crosses exhibition currently open. Lots for everyone!

This week we will head to the Dubh Linn Gardens (the original place of the dubh linn, the dark pool which gave Dublin its name!) - located behind Dublin Castle. Link to lots of info here - if the weather is bad we can just pop into Dublin Castle itself or the Chester Beatty which is always…
Isn't it only lovely outside - so to celebrate we're going to visit Phoenix Park this Sunday and hope that the fine weather predicted won't let us down! A number of people have shown an interest in visiting the zoo - while others weren't so sure - so a compromise has been reached!
We will all meet just outside the entrance to the zoo at 2pm - those who wish to go…Read on...
