A Guide to Casual Encounters and NSA Sex in Dublin

NSA Dublin: A guide to no strings fun in the Irish capital.

“What’s a casual encounter?” some of our curious readers have asked.

It’s casual sex.

A casual encounter is a mutually beneficial act between two consenting adults where both parties get what they want; sex without any of the guesswork beforehand and none of the fuss afterwards.

Best of all, it’s free.

(Those of you who are willing to pay for your thrills should check out our Dublin escorts guide.)

Whilst you could take your chances down by the Liffey and take to the bars around town for a chance of a ride, why not save yourself the bother?

There are plenty of ways to arrange a Dublin one night stand by heading online first.

Let’s take a look at some of your options…


Adult Friend Finder

Offering perhaps the largest online database of adults seeking NSA sex, Adult Friend Finder is free to join but the main features are paid for by subscription.

The site offers an instant messaging and online contact system alongside member reviews and ratings. The bios and photos allow you to review just who you are meeting up with before you hook up and the membership system ensures that what you see is what you get, unlike the free sites where authenticity can be a problem.

Adult Friend Finder is an international site and paid for access will allow you to hook up wherever you are in the world.


OK Cupid

Available to register 100% free, the OK Cupid website has hundreds of profiles listed on their site. Some are looking for a relationship whilst others are just in for the thrills of a hook-up with new partners. On this site you can filter by age, location and when they were last active on the site. OK Cupid provides a lot of information for you to scout out exactly who might be willing to keep things strictly no strings.

Users of the site are more often than not looking for a regular fuck buddy than just a one night stand, particularly if you are local, but NSA sex is very much an option for most.


Craigslist Dublin (W4M)

Internationally renowned for its adult personals listings, Craigslist has made a name for itself as the one-stop-shop for a casual encounter.

Yes, the site has its flaws in that you cannot guarantee the authenticity of the advertisers, particularly the photographs nor can you filter the results by anything other than age and proximity to a location.

You can still scout out any Dublin women who might be looking to shag by combing through the W4M section on a regular basis.

That’s women seeking men.

There are thousands of adverts from users looking for a casual, no strings attached, sexual encounter around the Dublin area. From straight girls to gay men, shemales and couples there is something (or someone) for every appetite.

Listed in date order, it is relatively easy to wheedle out the escort services so that you can be sure of a free hook up. Some ads have photos but many do not. You don’t need to be registered to use the site but if you want to place an ad of your own then you will need to sign-up. Otherwise, just browse W4M…

100% free, Craigslist is the number one go to for anyone looking to meet for sex in Dublin.


Let’s Meet Up

Powered by HubPeople, Let’s Meet Up offers a central database of singles, couples and swingers looking for casual encounters in any area, including Dublin.

Registration is free but many features are only available with a fully paid membership. However, you can access the listings and basic details of members within your free registration. There are plenty of photos and the site offers a community forum and feedback system so you know who you are dealing with.


NSA Dublin

A site specifically designed to meet the demands of the NSA obsessed fuck buddy culture, NSA Dublin is free to join.

Offering access to thousands of profiles of singles in the area, the site provides good bio details and photos for potential hook-ups. In order to start contacting users and looking at who is viewing your profile you do need to pay for a premium membership. However, the cost of membership is far cheaper than buying endless drinks for girls in bars only to go home empty handed, right?



Like Craigslist, this free classified site has hundreds of listings available in the Dublin area for casual adult encounters, some of them specifically W4M. The adverts are split into categories of women looking for men (W4M), men looking for men (M4M) etc, and can be filtered by location.

There is a mixed bag of casual sex listings available and you should be discerning to determine whether the ad you are interested in is genuine — as many are uploaded by escorts seeking payment.



With over 300k users registered on the App in Ireland, no guide to casual encounters would be complete without mention of Tinder.

Simply download the app to your smartphone, register for free and start swiping through a seemingly endless supply of available opportunities in your area.

Once you’ve made contact you just need to arrange a suitable time and place. Easy to use and easy to register with, Tinder is failsafe for a NSA encounter in Dublin.
