There is always a lot to do around this time of year, and we are here to give you a quick rundown of the highlights. From all over the web, we bring to you some inspirational tips on activities and experiences in Dublin this winter season. From Christmas outings to New Year’s Resolutions, here are the ideas that will send off your year 2018 in style.

Just this month, VisitDublin.ie has revealed some great suggestions for seasonal outings, which we are happy to encourage anyone to attend and experience for themselves. Have a look for yourself if you’re up to some fun with family, friends, or places to go solo this year. On par for the season, there is a list pubs with live traditional Christmas music, or carol singing concerts for those with a musical inclination. Head for a bit of outdoor ice skating between Christmas and the new year, or scope out the best food markets, festivals, and much more.

Speaking of food markets, whether you’re a bit of a foodie or just enjoy a hearty meal around wintertime, check out DineinDublin.ie’s guide to Christmas lunch in Dublin 2018. Their online guide includes set menus and prices, too, so you’re sure to not bite off more than you can chew when splurging on that flavourful outing.

If you have indulged in a lot of shopping and dining out, consider giving back this Christmas by donating or volunteering for a cause that needs your support. For instance, take part in the The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC)’s Christmas Appeal. By donating just €4, you can win an incredible prize: 2 tickets to every show in the 3Arena, plus 2 tickets to every MCD open air festival in 2019. Find out more here.

If you want to do even more for your local community and make a real difference to the lives of many, consider volunteering as your 2019 resolution. There are plenty of opportunities to do so with the ISPCC, and you can get the right training to really help those in need. See more details and get started by going here.

You can also follow VolunteerDublinCity’s guide to finding volunteering opportunities here. This guide will help you search for volunteer roles this season, and take you through the process of applying step-by-step. Or, if you are ready to jump in and find a role directly, follow this link. Your help will be greatly appreciated by those who cannot look forward to much seasonal cheer this Christmas.
