Out and About for Tea & Chats

Some people consider talking about the weather to be a sign of bad conversation. Not here in Dublin’s Culture Connects!

We’re always amazed at where our Tea & Chats can take us and what an impact the weather can have. In mostly sunny weather Louise and Sandra from our Outreach and Engagement team ventured out in a boat onto the River Liffey. As they drifted along the river that divides the city North and South, they discussed what it is that connects us.

When it was partly cloudy Kate Aston lived life on the edge as she joined the Siulinn Walking Club to talk and walk along Howth Head. And when scattered showers abounded, Hannah could be found inside a St. Finbarr’s Court community centre in Cabra, receiving an education on William Rowan Hamilton and his contribution to mathematics.

One of the key elements of Tea & Chats is its informal nature that makes possible honest conversations, where people feel comfortable to share their ideas, reflections, concerns and desires for their local area and city. As our Tea & Chats continue to scatter us all over Dublin City, we would love to hear from you if you would like to take part, or host a workshop in your community. Please contact us to organise a time and venue. Email us at

We look forward to the forecast ahead for Tea & Chats.

Since Dublin’s Culture Connects’ Tea & Chats started back in 2015, we’ve listened to thousands of people of all ages and from all walks of life, collecting stories along the way. People like you across Dublin have poured us many cups of tea and shared the things that really matter to them and to their community.
