What’s On in Dublin This Weekend (January 24-26)
DublinTown features on Dublin City FM every Friday morning to talk about some of the many things happening in the city. If you missed us on air, don’t worry as below are a number of things you can do this weekend in the city.
Dumplings: Wrapping Up a Long History Talk with Asia Market at Chester Beatty in Dublin Castle – Saturday 25th January, 1.10pm
As part of Dublin Chinese New Year, if you’ve always wanted to learn more about the delicious dumpling, this is the talk to attend. Find out all about Chinese dumplings, the different types, what they symbolise, where they originated from and how they are made at this talk with award-winning writer and food journalist Mei Chin. Dumplings have been a fundamental Chinese food for centuries, and yet there are so many varieties, which, in turn, reflect the myriad faces of China, a country that is a patchwork of customs and more than a thousand different languages.
The talk is FREE to attend and takes place at 1.10pm in the Chester Beatty Lecture Theatre.
Whiskey Tasting Tour in Mandarin at the Irish Whiskey Museum – Sunday 26th January, 2.30pm
Independent of all distilleries, the Irish Whiskey Museum offers guided tours throughout four rooms each themed to represent a different period in Irish history. You’ll finish the tour by becoming a true whiskey connoisseur with an interactive tasting and then head down to the in-house bar and whiskey store. There are two sessions for this tour so be sure to book your place today. Tickets only cost €5 and are available now via Eventbrite.
Drama at Inish at Abbey Theatre – Friday 24th January, 7.30pm
The final show of Drama at Inish takes to the stage in the Abbey Theatre on Friday evening. A much-loved favourite from the Irish canon that was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1933, this new production takes this brilliant farce into 1960s Ireland and features a superb cast of Ireland’s best-loved actors. Although Drama at Inish is a comedy, the play does contains references to marital strife, domestic violence, and suicide and audience discretion is advised.
Limited tickets are still available from €38-45 for this evening’s final show at 7.30pm.
