The weekend does not need to revolve around nights out. Here are five weekend activities you can enjoy that will really help you make the most of your free time.
1: Take a hike
One thing I want to do more of is venturing off on hiking or walking trails. Fresh air, exercise, views plus time alone or with family and friends. A nice way to see what trails are in your local area is to visit www.irishtrails.ie and choose the specifications you would like.
2: Wall Climbing
I’ve done this a few times and always had a ball. It’s FAR tougher than it looks but great fun to do as a group. A simple google search will show you of companies in your area that offer the service! Check it out.
3: Beach Walks
One of my favourite things to do is to go to the beach. You don’t have to wait for the summer weather either. Wrap up, pack a healthy lunch and a few towels and snacks and head off for a little escape time. The beach, the sound, the smells, the air can be so therapeutic. But don’t take my word for it. Go see for yourself.
Another great thing to do at the weekend is to take some surfing lessons. We live on an island – literally surrounded by water – and we don’t often think of it for weekend activities. Look up the nearest surf schools to you and give it a go.
5: Road-trip on the Wild Atlantic Way
This is top of my list for day trips in 2017. I really want to take in some of this gorgeous country and spend time seeing places I haven’t seen before. For more on planning your route visit www.wildatlanticway.com
