This Artsy Event Is A Fab Alternative Date Night Idea

Éadaoin Fitzmaurice

Coming up with date ideas in Dublin has become a little exhausting as of late – it’s either food or pints.

I do adore the odd date night at a nice restaurant or cocktail bar but it’s nice to have… other options? These “other options” have been pretty limited though, and finding inspiration can be an absolute struggle.

Some of the best dates are the ones that throw you into a quirky situation and have you laughing your socks off.

Paint By The Pints is exactly that. 

This event does exactly what it says on the tin – encourages you to get those creative juices flowing while you sip on the good stuff.

Whether you consider yourself to be a bit of a Picasso or an absolute novice, this event is designed to suit all skill sets. The fun-filled evening happens once a week in various different venues with various different pieces of art to try your hand at.

During the event, you’ll be guided step-by-step through creating your very own masterpiece. It’s all a bit of craic so don’t worry if you can’t even draw an orange, you’ll be graaaand.

All materials including paint, paintbrushes and even a free drink are provided to get your evening started on the right note!

Some of the events are BYOD – bring your own dog so it really is the dream activity for friends, couples and family.

If you’re looking to try something out of the ordinary this is the one for you. You’ll even have a stunning painting to take home with you and show your mammy.

*Signs up right away!*
