Lovin' Media

Summer is the time of year to get out and try something new. Luckily, there are absolutely loads of fun and quirky things to do in Dublin to expand your horizons and do something you’ve never done before. It really is a city that is pure jam-packed with experiences.

So, here are some of our picks for quirky and alternative things to do and see in the city.

Check Out The Sausage Dog Meetup

You heard me right. Yes, Dublin has a sausage dog social club.

Sausage Dog Social Dublin organises regular events for owners and lovers of the short-legged creatures.

Their most recent meetup was a sausage dog pride party at Street 66. They’ve also recently organised a 5k dog walk of Phoenix Park as well as Sausage Dog Social on Dollymount Beach.

To find out more, you can check them out on Facebook.

Go On A Ghost/Zombie Tour Of Dublin

If you fancy something a bit more on the spooky side, then this might be the thing for you to try out this summer.

Dublin’s ghost bus tour will take you on a journey through the city’s gruesome past with professional actors who are all too convincing when they play sinister surgeons, ghosts and ghouls. To find out more, check it out here.

Meanwhile, a zombie bus tour of Dublin will transport you to the apocalypse. With professionally trained actors and VR gas masks, the experience is pretty real, to say the least. For more info, click here.

Go On A Street Art Tour Of Dublin

Street art is something we tend to see around the city when we’re commuting or on our way somewhere. But to really appreciate the beauty of it, you should head on a crawl of the city to view all of the amazing pieces our urban jungle has to offer.

Dublin Walls put together a handy little map of routes you can take to see some of the most interesting street art around the city.

The routes range from 40 minutes to two hours, and their live map is ever evolving to give you the best and most up-to-date routes.

Hang Out At The Clockwork Door

Conveniently situated in Temple Bar, The Clockwork Door is Dublin’s very own time-house, which means you pay as you go for unlimited tea, coffee, biscuits, popcorn and Wi-Fi. You can head in and enjoy some board games, play some video games and even order take away. They also have their very own virtual reality experience and escape room.

They also host regular events, such as painting classes, open mic nights and video game tournaments.

Visit The City’s Tiniest Museums

If you’re looking for a comprehensive history lesson of our glorious city, then look no further than the Little Museum of Dublin.

The museum was founded in 2011 after an appeal to the public for artefacts. Open seven days a week, this quirky museum housed in a Georgian building at Stephen’s Green is truly one of the most unique experiences in Dublin.

Another little museum that is definitely worth a visit is the Pearse Museum in St Enda’s Park in Rathfarnham. Padraig Pearse lived and taught here until his execution in 1916.
