Living in Dublin for a while I did not experience many outdoor activities here for a while. Assuming that it rains constantly and people prefer to get cozy in pubs and restaurants I did not check for any events that might happen in the open air.
One of my favourite cinemas in Dublin – The Lighthouse Cinema (check the Lighthouse cinema article) is located on the Smithfield Square and after checking the news on their Twitter account I discovered an outdoor event right in front of the cinema. This was a famous Irish movie “The Commitments” from 1991 that was going to be shown outside. The event was unfortunately fully booked but hoping to get in I went to the Smithfield Square anyway.
And I could watch the movie from outside (while having gorgeous summer weather!) with many others who had a similar idea! I have discovered a website created specifically for cultural events that take place in Smithfield, right near the famous Jameson Distillery, with some markets on weekends and other amazing things, for adults and kids! Check this out yourself!
