Shamrock shakes are back, leprechaun hats are out and we’re pulling the green pieces of clothing out of our wardrobes. It can only mean one thing! St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, and so is a long weekend. There’s plenty of St. Patrick’s Day events around Ireland to celebrate. But if you’re looking for something to do after Paddy’s Day activities, we have the ideal ways to fill in the rest of the weekend! We’re hoping the snow stays away – but if it doesn’t, there are some great indoor activities that will make your weekend.
If you love getting outdoors but don’t want to forego your comfy bed, then glamping is definitely for you! Enjoy all the best that the great outdoors has to offer, without compromising your luxuries. Check out some of the best glamping spots in the country right here.
Go for Games Night
Rather than heading out, why not stay in and bring out your competitive streak this Patricks’ Day? Whether there’s laughter between a group or just one on one, there’s plenty to choose from on games night. From Jenga and Speak Out to Twister and a good game of cards. Throw on your favourite playlist and get going!
When you don’t fancy breakfast, yet it’s too early for lunch. Brunch is always a good idea! Although it’s not a Saturday night kind of thing – it’s ideal for post-Sunday strolls! Find your favourite place for brunch and make it a date destination. We also have the perfect brunch OOTD inspiration right here.
Picnics in Stephen’s Green
Never mind the cold, as long as it’s not raining, wrap up warm and grab a basket full of tasty treats. Take a stroll down to St. Stephen’s Green for the perfect picnic spot. Or, if that’s more of a trek than a stroll, there’s plenty of fab places around Ireland. Check out these top spots for a stroll and a picnic. Hopefully, the snow will stay away so a weekend picnic can be enjoyed!
Cinema Night with a Difference
Rather than the usual cinema night, if you’re in Dublin, head along to the Light House Cinema. As well as box office hits, they also show some firm favourites and original movies too. Complete with a lounge area, café, and a bar, it has every aspect of date night rolled into one.
Feel the Nostalgia
Another Dublin based date idea, but it’s so worth the trip if you don’t have too far to go. Token is all about the nostalgia. From pinball machines to firm favourites like Pac Man, it’s a retro arcade where you can get high-end fast food made to order.
