Free things to do in Dublin why not check the National Gallery of Ireland I am embarrassed to say I hadn’t been there since I was a child but I started going again in January and really is amazing to see a Picasso up close and Yeats collection and not to mention how relaxing it is walking around oh and its free that’s right free and its only a ten minute walk from Grafton Street.
If you are there with children they offer a free family pack containing paper, pencils, discovery trails and activity sheets they are available at the Information Desk in the Millennium Wing and on Saturdays at 3.00pm they offer family workshop again these are free and great way to keep a budding artist happy check out there www.nationalgallery.ie
