The South Dublin branch holds indoor and outdoor meetings each month from September to May and occasionally during June, July and August. The details of these are displayed in the 'Calendar of Events' (left) when they become available.

Indoor Events

Our indoor events take place on the first or (very occasionally) second Tuesday of the month.
Unless otherwise stated, they begin at 8pm. Admission to indoor meetings is free, however we would be very grateful for any contribution made towards the cost of the meeting room.

Outdoor Events

Outdoor events are available to all and with the exception of trips made by coach, are free of charge. Coach outings generally cost around €35.00 per person or €25.00 for children, students or pensioners.
When taking part, wear clothing suitable for the time of year and location and although we often take in a visit to shops around lunch time it is wiser not to rely on that completely for food and drinks during the trip.
