Revels

The Revels are monthly (more-or-less) mini-events. We meet up in a convenient local place, and do some medieval stuff – depending on the day, there might be fencing or armoured combat, crafts of various kinds, classes in something useful or interesting, and always a lunch of good medieval food and plenty of conversation. The next revel is on July 4th – keep an eye here and on Dun in Mara’s social media channels for updates!

To book for the revel, please use the form at the bottom of this page.

Garb (medieval clothing) is encouraged, but not compulsory, so don’t worry if you haven’t got anything that look medieval – just turn up! We can almost certainly lend you something for the day if need be.

The cost is €10 per head for the day (children under 14 are free when accompanied by an adult).

The revel will be in Sancta Maria Primary School, Synge Street, Dublin 8. Lunch will be provided and will be cooked by Lord Nemet Arpad.

The July 4th Revel will be dedicated to Arts & Sciences – that is, medieval arts, crafts, and learnings. Details will be added here as we get closer to the Revel, but short classes in medieval cookery, calligraphy, and fabric arts are likely to be on the schedule.

This Revel will also include the Dun in Mara AGM – people who are not Shire Members are welcome to come along and comment!

If you’re coming along and don’t know anyone in the Shire yet, or have any questions, please email Juliette Cavalierri (Lynda Cully). She’s in charge of getting new people settled in, and she’ll tell you anything you want to know.

And if you have friends or relatives who are curious about what we do, but don’t want to commit to a full event, this is an ideal time for them to come along and have a look!
