It is a time to celebrate and appreciate your loved ones. Although don’t panic if you are not coupled up, we still have several activities for you and your friends on this romantic day!
1. ISI Valentine's Day Party

2.Skyline at Dusk, Croke Park
The skyline at Dusk Tour hosted by Croke Park is perfect for you and your partner. Enjoy a spectacular view of Dublin's skyline from the roof of Croke Park, an amazing 17 stories above the pitch.

4. Stella Theatre
Experience a special cinema experience in the beautifully restored Stella Cinema, an iconic cinematic landmark that sits in the heart of Dublin 6. The art deco cinema originally opened its doors in 1923 and at the time it was the largest cinema in Dublin. They also serve a stunning food menu, which they deliver straight to your seat before the movie begins. If you like cocktails a trip to the Stella Theatre is not complete until you discover the Stella Cocktail Club upstairs. The luxurious cocktail bar was once a ballroom in the 1920’s would you believe! Ideally the perfect Valentine’s date for you and your loved one.
Token is an all-time favourite spot for me. The perfect place to go on a first date! Located only 10 minutes away from ISI in the heart of Smithfield, Token provide amazing food for all types, even vegan! Not only is their food menu spectacular, they also have over 40 game machines to keep you entertained all night long. If you need a break from playing Mario Kart, they have up to 3 bars where you can grab yourself a drink. A cool and unique way to spend your Valentine's Day.
