What is a Men Shed

A men's shed is a place where local men can drop in and socialize with other men who may be retired or out of work due to ill health. The shed is open to all men of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. The Dublin 12 Men's Shed in Walkinstown aims to be apart of the local community and extends an invite to everyone and anyone

New Members Always Welcome

What happens at the shed

At the Dublin 12 Men's Shed you can sit and have a cuppa and a chat or if you like you can turn your hand to some wood turning or any other woodworking projects. The shed is very well stocked with all kinds of tools and machinery

Social side of things

At the Dublin 12 Men's Shed we organize day's out for the members which includes trips to various locations throughout Ireland including visiting other sheds and places of interest. This also involves community outreach like getting involved with local community and charity groups.

We also have a "Social" day every Friday where no woodwork is done, we play darts, cards and other games or just sit and have a chat
