Top 3 things to see in an afternoon at the Science Gallery in Dublin

08 December 2017 · 3 min read

If you’re planning a trip to Dublin and fancy doing something more stimulating and educational than just strolling around and drinking beer, a visit to the Science Gallery should definitely be at the top of your to-do list.

Established in 2008 and housed in Trinity’s Naughton Institute, the gallery is home to various exhibitions and lectures that explore science in the modern world.

Perfect for art lovers as well, a number of works at the gallery explore art-science collaborations and draw links between these two subjects that are often not viewed together.
After a day spent exploring some of the exciting exhibitions that the Science Gallery has to offer, make your way back to your room at the O Callaghan Davenport where you can relax with your family or friends. Not feeling tired yet? Enjoy some drinks and then get ready to hit the town, Dublin’s nightlife is not one to be missed.

In Case Of Emergency

The exhibition being shown until 04.02.18

This thought-provoking work invites viewers to explore an age-old question that continues to fascinate people from all walks of life- how will the world end? The multi-faceted exhibition draws on viewpoints from a range of informed and interested individuals including doomers, designers, dreamers and doctors, all of whom have different outlooks about how the world will end. By putting their case forward, you will witness a well-rounded exploration that considers an apocalypse, zombies or bombs and collapses and downfalls as well examining why the human race is so fascinated with the idea of impending doom and continues to ponder over unanswerable questions.

All that thinking giving you brain-ache? It’s time to relax, so head back to your room at one of our hotels in Dublin City where a hot bath and a comfortable bed will be waiting for you. There’s no place better than one of our suites for unwinding and chilling out with family or friends.
