We all know the Irish weather is not something you can rely on. With rain and cold never too far away, this often leaves you pottering around the house, afraid to step foot outside without at least 10 layers of clothing and suffering from a touch of cabin fever. We’ve picked 5 great indoor activities in Dublin that won’t have you reaching for a scarf and that will no doubt be worth the trip out to.

Token Dublin

After opening in 2017, Token has gone from strength to strength in becoming a staple in Dublin City Centre for people who don’t necessarily want to drink at night. This restaurant/bar/pinball parlour/retro arcade is a fantastic evening out for those who would like to relive their youth and see if they’re still as good at Pac-Man, Street Fighter, Donkey Kong and much much more!

The Hideout

This BYOB spot is a great place for a few games of pool with your mates in one of the liveliest and hippest areas of Dublin City Centre, South William Street. With great music and TVs showing whatever game is on that evening, you don’t even have to enjoy pool to have a good time here while sheltering from the weather outside!

Who doesn’t love Leisureplex?! Gone are the days of birthday parties with Plexi the Dinosaur but that doesn’t mean you still can’t have a deadly time at this playground for all ages. Now that you’re over 18, you can take part in their BYOB Bowling sessions but Leisureplex offers so much more than that. Between racing car games, basketball shootouts, quasar, pool and arcade games, you’ll never be bored here. More importantly, you won’t be outside! Because they’re usually situated in the suburbs, they even offer car parks to reduce the amount of time you have to spend outdoors while getting there.

Virgin Mary

Virgin Mary is the latest addition to the Dublin bar scene but guess what…it doesn’t serve alcohol. Whether you’re taking a few weeks off the drink or you’re a teetotaler, Virgin Mary offers everything you get in your normal pub setting without the pressure of having to get yourself a pint. With nothing like this ever done before in Dublin, we’re really looking forward to trying this one out ourselves.

Science Gallery

In 2008, a forgotten corner of Trinity College Dublin was transformed into a living experiment called Science Gallery Dublin. With new exhibitions every few months along with regular one-off events, keep an eye on the Science Gallery’s social pages for their latest news to avoid missing out on some great days out. Its central location in the city centre makes it an ideal spot to escape the ever-changing Irish weather if you’re out and about in town.
