Dublin Free Event Guide

The "Dublin Event Guide for Free Events" is a weekly service that provides comprehensive information about all free cultural events in the Greater Dublin area. It consists of this website, an e-mail magazine send to tens of thousands of subscribers and a smartphone web app. This service was started by Joerg Steegmueller in June 2007 as an e-mail to about 10 of his friends to let them know about a small amount of interesting free events in Dublin. They told their friends, more people got interested and now more than 22,000 readers get the e-mail magazine every week. The service is provided completely free of charge and the cost for it is covered by Joerg Steegmueller, a number of sponsors and through voluntary donations from subscribers. In October 2014, Eventbrite - the online ticketing service that allows event organizers to plan, set up ticket sales and promote events - came on board as a main sponsor.
