Feeling Zen in Dublin – Three on Thursday

We are feeling zen in Dublin. At City Language School English School Dublin we \’recommend culture\’ and we let our students know what’s going on in the great city (aka town). This week we have a look at three events that are happening near Dublin City Centre and further afield over the next few days.

The National Gallery of Ireland is a lovely space to get away from it all even for a few minutes. Six times a week the gallery tour guides offer free tours highlighting some of the most famous works on display. Works by Picasso, Jack B Yeats, Mark Rothko and many more are on display here and there is nothing stopping you from going as often as you like. We wold recommend going late on Thursday when the gallery is less likely to be full.

  • Thursdays at 6.30pm
  • Saturdays at 12.30pm and 2.30pm
  • Sundays at 11.30am, 12.30pm (family-friendly) and 1.30pm
