4 events for... people who hate traditional Valentine's Day plans

And not a set menu in sight.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING for something to do this Valentine’s Day that doesn’t involve a restricted set menu in a too-full restaurant, we’ve got you covered.

Whether you’re loved up, fed up or are just looking for something different to do this evening, let these events be your inspiration.

From a skyline tour to a screening of one of the best movies of all time, here are four events that will make this Valentine’s Day one to remember for all of the right reasons…

1. Croke Park’s Ericsson Skyline Dusk Tour

When: 14 February, 4pm

Where: Jones’ Road, Dublin 3

Fall in love with the Dublin skyline from the rooftop of Croke Park this Valentine’s Day while hearing tales of the capital’s history and learning about St Valentine’s unique connection with the city before enjoying a pink gin cocktail in the café afterwards. Tickets are €20 and selling out fast – so be quick if you want to head along. 

Buy tickets here.

2. Valentine’s Day at The Big Romance

When: 14 February, from 4pm

Where: 98 Parnell Street, Dublin 1

If you’re looking for good music, good drinks and a good time, Parnell Street’s newest haunt is for you. There’ll be music from The Midnight Disco’s Rosita Moulin, with a selection of cheese boards and nibbles to see you through the night in the intimate venue. Cheers to that.

3. Casablanca at Triskel Arts Centre

When: 14 February

Where: Tobin Street, Cork City

First released in 1942, Casablanca is a romantic drama that even the greatest love cynics will enjoy. Here’s looking at you, kid, to take advantage of the chance to see this award-winning film on the big screen.  

Book tickets here.

4. Romeo + Juliet at The Stella Theatre

When: 15 February, 11:55pm

Where: Rathmines, Dublin 6

One of the greatest love stories of all time, Shakespeare’s famous play is updated to modern world while retaining its original dialogue in this Baz Luhrmann-directed film. Nab a couch (or a bed) in the Stella Rathmines, get comfy and don’t forget tissues, okay?
