Things To Do During Midterm Breaks in Dublin
Written by Chloe Regan
During midterm breaks everyone is looking for exciting things to do instead of sitting around watching Netflix!
Here’s a list of things to do in DublinTown this October mid term!
The Savoy on O’Connell street has plenty of new films and is open during the midterm. From family movies such as Toy Story 4 to older movies like The Joker, The Savoy has it all. Tickets cost only €9.00 for a child and €9.50 for a teen – how could you resist!
Or Cineworld at the Parnell Centre is just €9.80 for a child and €10 for a teen!
St. Stephen’s Green
St. Stephen’s Green is the perfect place to relax and enjoy Dublin. With a beautiful shopping centre right beside the park it’s the perfect place to go on a midterm break.
Located at the top of Grafton Street, it’s hard to miss!
There are so many great shops around Dublin for all ages to pass the time or to get a new wardrobe! Also consider checking out charity shops and donate some clothes you don’t wear anymore this mid-term. Some of my favourites include JD Sports, Penneys, New Look and many more.
