Eight Degrees in Merrion Square, Dublin

Ok, we’re nearly at the end of November. I think we can *mention* – just mention, mind you – Christmas now. There’ll be no talk of trees and decorations just yet. But we’ve got something that’s making us feel all Christmasy. It’s Christmas on the Square, organised by The Merrion Square Innovation Network, which is taking place in and around the gorgeous Georgian houses on Merrion Square in Dublin. We’ll be doing tastings at The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland, No 8, Merrion Square tomorrow – Saturday 28 November, between 12pm and 5pm for Meet the Craft Drink Makers. There are lots of other lovely free events taking place as part of this event. You can find out all about it in many different ways: Twitter @merrionsqdub Hashtag is #merrionsqchristmas Facebook www.facebook.com/MerrionSquareDublin Website www.merrionsquare.ie  Full details of the programme here.
