‘The Dublin Story Slam was born in May 2017 and shares true personal stories from listeners through our Podcast, live events and social media. From the very start we were passionate about creating a Dublin space where people from all kinds of backgrounds can get together to share & listen to stories. We believe in the power of storytelling, the healing power, the bonding power and the lasting power of stories that can stun a room into complete silence and make it erupt into laughter a second later.

However we also believe in the power of listening. It’s incredible to witness the impact a receptive and warm audience can have on a nervous first time storyteller and watch how more confident and relaxed they become as they realise that the audience really wants to hear their story. It’s this unique relationship between storyteller & audience that makes The Dublin Story Slam such a unique space for stories’

Step back to the 1800’s, the vintage Singer machines and traditional shoe making materials in the window of our first busy little coffee shop would have been making shoes on the same spot. The sewing machines and wooden lasts in the window were donated by the nearby Tara Leather, the last of a row of cobblers that made up ‘Shoe Lane’, now known as Tara Street.

The vintage timber you can admire in both locations is over 150 years old, was salvaged from a nearby warehouse and used to handcraft the floorboards, seating and counter. Instead of fashioning footwear, we are crafting speciality coffee for the fleet of commuters and caffeine lovers that flock here in search of a quality cup

    Sarah organised a day out in Dublin for me and my partner back in February. It was really simple, we gave her an idea of what our interests were and a budget to stick to. The result was amazing, her itinerary brought us to a variety of interesting places with appropriate times allocated to each activity to allow sufficient time to enjoy the activity and also the travel time required to get to the next venue. In addition selection of food locations were ideal, I wanted to explore places I hadn’t been to before and Sarah’s choices did not disappoint. All in all, I would highly recommend this service, its a well thought out experience that will be hard to beat.

    Sarah organised a three night stay for my partner and I on the August bank holiday. We had given her quite short notice so we were really grateful when our itinerary came back super fast and we were able to book everything. We had told her our interests (good food/ surfing/ other outdoor activity) and she came up with some great activities for us with everything spaced out so we could enjoy it all without feeling we had to rush to the next thing. Her choice of hotel and restaurants was particularly good and included a couple of gems off the beaten track that we would never have found ourselves. I would 100% recommend this service to anyone who wants to remove the stress of planning a trip and take their holiday to the next level! We will definitely go with Sarah and Experience Planner for our next trip in Ireland.

    Sarah Organised four days for us in the Aran Island, I wasn’t sure which of the islands i wanted to stay on but after speaking to Sarah and telling her what we like and our need she sent us to inis meain & it was so perfect for us. I have falling in love with this little island. Sarah made sure our days were full of the most amazing things to do from island hopping to seeweed bath & hot stone massage, we meet the most amazing people and can not thank Sarah enough for all she done for us. I will always be using experience planner for my staycation from now on

    Sarah organised 3 days and nights for our family on staycation. I was at a loss where to go to cater for a teenager and 2 smallies and along with covid, unsure of my options if any!! Sarah was a lifeline and her inteniry had everything down to a tee. I especially found the places to eat so helpful, we literally just booked and went and it helped that everywhere we went the food was gorgeous. We came across places we never knew existed and thankfully the weather was on our side too. I cannot wait to book sarah just for a trip for my husband and I, and uncover more of this beautiful country.
