10 awesome things to do in Ireland this summer

Not all of us will be lucky enough to be heading heading away this year, but fear not, there is plenty to keep you entertained at home.

Electric Picnic
Yes, it’s the price of a short city break but it is so much better!  There is an abundance of festivals to hit this year so you’ll definitely find something to suit your budget.

Marlay Park gigs
There will be a whole host of pretty cool artists playing here including Ellie Goulding, Kanye West and Jay-Z, The Arctic Monkeys, The Kings of Leon and a lot more.

Who needs Australia when we’ve got Donegal, Lahinch and even Wexford right on our doorstep.

The National Horse show
This is the perfect way for horse-lovers to spend a glorious afternoon.

Fota Wildlife Park

The animals are so close you can almost touch them, but we don’t recommend you try…

 Whale watching
West Cork is a hive of whale and dolphin activity.

Taste of Dublin
Food, drink and a lively atmosphere – what more could you ask for?

Giro d’Italia
One of the world’s best cycling events is coming to Dublin, make sure you don’t miss it.

Yes, it will probably rain but you will be having so much fun you won’t even notice!
