It’s the perfect time for a heatwave, exams are over, and school is out. To help you get the best of the sun this week we’ve compiled a list of things to do in Ireland when the sun covers our little green island. There is so much to do, but here are some of the best choices on offer.
The Forty Foot (Dublin)
When the suns out, it’s time to get those guns out, and there is no better spot than at the Forty Foot in Dun Laoghaire. There is nothing better than a plunge into the chilly waters at Sandycove to cool you down when the sun is shining. You can also make it a day-trip by heading into Dun Laoghaire after your dip for a bite to eat and maybe even a few cheeky pints.
Powerscourt Waterfall (Wicklow)
Powerscourt Waterfall is Irelands highest waterfall at 398ft and is based about 6km from the main Powerscourt Estate. The waterfall is surrounded by some truly spectacular parkland and is the perfect spot to visit on a sunny day. You spend a few hours strolling or even bring the barbeque along, it’s up to you.
Admission into Powerscourt is €6 for an Adult and €5 for a Student/OAP.
Cliffs of Moher (Clare)
There is no better to visit the Cliffs of Moher then when the sun is shining and the view is clear. As the fresh sea breeze blows in your face you’ll understand exactly why the cliffs are the perfect place to spend a sunny Irish day.
The website recommends you allocate at least 2 hours for your visit, but you can most certainly make a day of your visit. Find ticket prices head over to cliffsofmoher.ie
Inch Beach (Kerry)
Ireland is littered with incredible beaches, but one of the best is Inch Beach in Inch, Co. Kerry. Almost every list names Inch Beach as one of the Top 10 beaches in Ireland, and it’s not hard to understand why with views like the one above.
A day on the beach will over you the opportunity to top your tan, go for a dip, and maybe kick around a football with the lads. What else do you want? Oh, and it’s FREE!
The Sugar Loaf (Wicklow)
The Sugar Loaf trail is a great way to get a sun and burn off a few of the summer evening pints. If you are looking for a challenge there is a 2.5 hour route, but we recommend you take it easy in the sun and do the 1 hour route. Whatever you decide to do, you will get an amazing view of sunny Ireland.
Make sure to pack plenty of food, water and suncream if you decide to head on the trail as it is set to be one hell of a hot week.
