BeLonG To

BeLonG To is the national organisation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) young people, aged between 14 and 23

Our vision is a world where LGBT+ young people are equal, safe and valued in the diversity of their identities and experiences.


Outhouse is a community and resource centre for LGBT people, their families and friends.

It is based in central Dublin. Its primary goal is to offer a safe space for people to inform, meet, organise and make things happen.

Outhouse is very often the first point of contact for people into the LGBT world and also the place in which lots of groups and organisations have been established

Meet Up

Meetup is the largest network of local communities that meet offline about their shared interests and passions. From book clubs to craft brewery crawls to coding workshops, we help people do more of what matters to them—inspiring and impacting millions of lives.

Meetup Dublin has several LGBTQ groups and is a great way to meet new people that share your interests. Ideal for locals and visitors alike.

Groups include LGBT Meditation Dublin who meet regularly in OutHouse. Out and About Gay Hiking Group who explore the outdoors, LGBT Girls: Health and Fitness, Frontrunners and many more.

Out and About

The Out and About hiking group  was set up in December 1989 as a social outlet for gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and their friends – an alternative to the prevailing pub & club scene. Originally one Sunday outing a month was organised, with a mix of hikes, bicycle rides and visits to tourist attractions. Hiking proved the most popular of the outings, and Sunday hikes have now become the mainstay of the group. Hikes are now organised every Sunday of the year .There is always a faster- and a slower-paced option each Sunday, the two groups meeting up for a drink at a local pub to finish off the day.


In recent years the group has organised a series of weekly summer evening hikes on a weekday. These hikes are three-hour events in the Wicklow Mountains – with a social drink afterwards back in one of the gay pubs in Dublin.

The club is run by a voluntary committee of hike leaders who meet regularly throughout the year to plan events and training. Contact is maintained with members via a newsletter (5-6 times per year), email shots, Facebook, and the website.

The Out2Tennis group aims to provide the opportunity for members of the gay community and their friends to come together and play tennis, regardless of their playing level while also giving them the opportunity to compete in a few different tournaments annually.

At the moment the group organises three main annual tournaments in which players of all levels of tennis can compete, the primary event being our International GLTA Tournament where we welcome players worldwide to compete in Dublin on the May Bank Holiday weekend every year. In 2017 we successfully ran our 8th GLTA tournament and we hope to welcome as any players as possible to compete in our 2018 tournament.

Many of our players also travel to compete in GLTA tournaments worldwide.
