Seomra Spraoi

Seomra Spraoi is an autonomous social centre in Dublin, Ireland. It is run by a non-hierarchical, anti-capitalist collective. For more info: . They officially opened back in 2004.  They are entirely funded by donations and are always on the lookout for people to volunteer in the space, in the kitchen, at late night events, in the bike workshop, or the much less glamorous cleaning! Please do check out their page, give them the thumbs up, share them with the world, and support them!

They very often have events on outside of the bellow hours though, so check out their website and their Facebook page for any changes. You can also call the Seomra Spraoi phone to see if they are open at a given moment .

A great article added ‘ You are in Dublin. You are fed up with the city centre attractions and the need for consumerism. You want to be, without necessarily having to express yourself spending money. Not many spots in town offer that. There is a free event guide that may turn out to give you some options, but when it comes to food the budget you need to consider is pretty high. The vegan café at Seomra Spraoi may then be the place for you. Seomra Spraoi is a social space in 10 Belvidere Court. The location is relatively in the city centre.

The social centre offers a venue for creative, cultural, alternative and social activities. Being an anarchist social space, there is a lot of room for every kind of initiative you would like to propose. There are some limitations of course: the venue would never offer a room for a conference on the benefits of a junk food diet. Apart for that kind of topic, which is not even a valid one; any kind of critical debate and analysis of social, cultural and psychological issue is welcome; as well as the exhibition of musicians that want to delight the public with their work.

The most famous event of the social space is definitely the Vegan Café Night, in place every Wednesday. It is so famous that some people would refer to the place as the “Vegan Café” more than “Seomra Spraoi the social space”.

Every Wednesday around 7 or 7.30 pm the Vegan Café night starts for the public. For the volunteer starts a bit earlier. A group of people propose to cook for the café every week. The entire menu must be based on vegan ingredients. They cook and cater for the night. People are welcome to go there, have dinner and leave a 5 euro donation. All the rest is up to the people there, social interaction, playful atmosphere, fun. It is not included in the package, but it has never been missing.

The donations that the volunteers gather go to cover expenses such as rent and bill, to maintain the place open and comfortable’.
