What we're about

Hello
let's get together for an exciting new meetup in town, destined to become one of the best in Dublin, where locals and internationals meet and exchange their cultures like music, art, and habits, funny and interesting anecdotes, and why not, practice English with native speakers in the meanwhile (all English levels welcome, don't be shy :-)).

We have amazing ideas to develop this to include diverse fun activities such as:

• Attending good gigs (local and international music)

• Dining out experiencing different international cuisines

• Getting together lots of people from different nationalities to exchange experiences

Stay tuned for the first meetup coming soon, which at the beginning will be a recurring relaxed coffee Meetup on Saturday or Sunday afternoons, to get to know each other.

We are also open to any feedback and ideas so feel free to propose!

Peter & Mickey!

Final Note:

Many Meetup groups let members start open discussions at any time on the main page of the Meetup group itself. We noticed this is creating a lot of unwanted and spammy notifications on mobile phones (when having the Meetup app installed), in fact, ALL the members of the Meetup will receive these messages! We instead don't let this to happen, we think that the discussions should be either allowed only on one single meetup event (which is fine) or only started by the organizers to gather feedback.

Both I and Peter are experienced Meetup organizers and also members of many meetup groups ourselves for many years, we noticed many mistakes and wrong decisions (such as for example organizing a meetup without consulting the management of the venue, which leads to changes at the last minute....) which we will avoid. All our meetups are agreed by the managers of the venues and we will always have our tables/spaces booked.

Coffee, interesting conversations and International Mishmash!

Costa Coffee Dawson Street

Hello! By popular demand we are back to Costa Coffee in Dawson Street for a Saturday afternoon Meetup! The theme is "International Mishmash", an occasion for people from all over the world and from Dublin to meet and share experiences, anecdotes, and why not, practicing English! The atmosphere is relaxed but fun, and your experienced Meetup Hosts (Peter from Ireland and Michele from Italy) will facilitate conversations and mingling. IMPORTANT: from now on we will be downstairs, look out for the MishMash signs on the tables.

Easter Monday FREE Howth Walking Tour / Picnic (weather permitting)

Our Irish organizer Peter is going to walk us for a fantastic FREE walking tour of Howth! This will be a perfect occasion for existing and any new member of the Meetup to join the tour and enjoy a fun day out and making a lot of new friends. We are going to take amazing pictures along the Cliff walk and walk around for a bunch of hours, so please wear suitable shoes. The schedule run like this (still subject to real-time changes): - Meeting point at 10.20am at the Spire (be on time!) - We are going to wait max 15 minutes for any member to join us and then head to the National Lottery bus stop in Abbey Street to catch the 31A or alternatively the Dart in Connolly station. (bring some euros and spare coins in cash for the ticket if you don't have a Leap Card - which is recommended to stroll around Dublin, don't you have it yet?) - We stop in town and start the walking tour, visiting some points of interest - Then we take the cliff walk for spectacular pictures, reaching the Summit and the Bailey Lighthouse! - There, to rest our tired untrained muscles (LOL), we can have a picnic all together (so it goes without saying, that you should bring food and drinks, like panini, tramezzini etc., or as we say in Italy, "Pane, Salame e Formaggio"). If you have a little percussion or a guitar or any other interesting portable instrument like a flute you can bring it and play it! - Alternatively, if the grass or soil is too wet, we can also go to the Summit Pub and have some drinks and pub food, which is delicious there. - In the afternoon after this break, we'll continue our walk with an alternative interesting spectacular route back to town. - Back there, before getting back to Dublin via bus or Dart train, we can also visit some local fishmonger to buy any fish like salmon, mussels, clams, crab, mixed seafood, I personally want to buy a whole lobster, possibly! IMPORTANT: We know it doesn't sound good to mention such negative stuff, but we must clarify that the Meetup group organizers (Peter and Mickey) don't take responsibility for any tragedy or injury that might happen for any reason during the walk, especially along the cliff walk. In some places it might be really too dangerous approaching the edge of the cliffs, the terrain might be slippery etc., resulting in tragedy. We must again stress that every member of the Meetup that joins us for this walk MUST wear suitable no-slippery shoes and stay at safe distance from the edge, there are plenty of opportunities to take amazing photos and selfies at safe distance without going close to the edge of the path. We'll do our absolute best to keep an eye on everybody but the responsibility is on the individuals. THAT SAID...: We'll be going to have some friendly & fun good time!
