The sunny weather has finally made an appearance and we can’t help but daydream about summer adventures. Spending the summer in New York sounds perfect, but unfortunately, our bank accounts are stopping that dream from coming true.

Luckily, there are plenty of places to visit around the Emerald Isle that are perfect if you’re in need of some time away from reality.

There's one place you must visit this summer and it’s the charming town of Clonakilty, Co.Cork. The West Cork town is one of the nicest parts of the county with the stunning Inchydoney Beach, snug pubs, plenty of dinky cafes and dozens of historical sites including Michael Collins House.

Once you arrive in the colourful and vibrant town you’ll never want to leave. The locals and their cheery disposition will make you feel like you’ve lived there your entire life.

There are plenty of hidden gems in Clonakilty that will make your trip all the more memorable.

1: Cafe On The Lane:

This quirky spot is hidden down Spillers Lane, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. The cafe is covered in bunting and fairy lights, with fresh flowers donning every table. The main seating area is full of mismatched, vintage furniture that adds to the character of the place. Treat yourself to a croissant or a brownie and a cup of coffee and listen to Elvis play on the cafe's record player.

2: Cycle around Clon:

Clonakilty is the first rural community to offer a bike rental scheme. There’s no better way to see the glorious town than cycling around Clonakilty, especially when the sun is shining. The Clonakilty Bike Scheme even shares advice on how to cycle safely on West Cork roads. Cycle out to Long Strand, which is only 20 minutes away from the town. Take in the breathtaking scenes and breathe in that fresh sea air.

3: Pints in Scannells:

This gastropub is the heart of the town, known as the small pub with the big garden, you just have to visit Scannells for a quick pint and a bite to eat. You’ll struggle to leave the pub with the infectious atmosphere and assortment of live music, from jazz to trad, Scannells has something for everyone.

4: A bookworm’s paradise:

The Children’s Project charity shop may just look like every other charity shop, but once you go upstairs you’ll be greeted by mountains and mountains of books. The second floor of the shop is a bookworm's idea of heaven. They have shelves full of best-sellers, horror tales, young adult novels, well-loved classics, popular chick-lit books more. You’ll go in for a quick browse and end up leaving the shop hours later with bags full of books.

Clonakilty is the perfect place to visit if you need to escape to the country, especially when the sun is shining!

We all love going to water parks to enjoy the fun activities and rides, but this is one slide that’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Without any riders or little cars, just sandbags to sit on, this is the most extreme waterslide we’ve ever seen! Watch the video above and ask yourself; will YOU be giving it a try?

A lot of people dread their birthdays – what will they do? What will people expect them to do?

Let’s face it, not everyone’s idea of an amazing night is hitting the clubs.

So, if you feel you’ve gotten too mature for raving house parties then why not choose one of these instead?

After all, almost anyone can be guilt-tripped when your birthday is involved.

1. Spa day
Have a relaxing and fun spa day with your best friends, your mum, or even alone if you prefer! You’ll feel ready to take on the next year in no time.

2. Dinner
Have a cosy dinner with your close friends and family at a nice restaurant or even at home. If someone else if willing to cook, obviously.

3. Weekend away
Why not go on a lovely break somewhere? Either around Ireland or even further afield if you can!

4. Do something crazy
Ever wanted to bungee jump or rock climb? Take your birthday as an opportunity to do new things and make other people do them with you.

5. Hike
Plan a full day hike up a mountain you’ve never climbed before. You’ll feel so accomplished after! Make sure you have the right gear and plan ahead though, safety first!

Valentine’s Day may seem like a day for couples but it’s still a celebration of love in all of its strange and wonderful forms.

This Valentine’s Day get your group of girls and do one (or some!) of these fun activities. Even the girl who is never without a boyfriend will ditch him when she hears what you’re all are up to!

1. Go for dinner
You’ll be guaranteed a table as it will be mostly twos and who knows, maybe you might see a proposal or two, ahh.

2. Afternoon tea
Put on your Races dress (and hat!) and head to your nearest posh hotel for a spot of fancy afternoon tea. What’s more satisfying than drinking tea out of pretty patterned teacups sitting in front of a cake stand full of little cakes and triangle sandwiches. We agree, nothing.

3. Cook dinner
Devise a menu, hit the supermarket and make the girls an amazing meal. Go all out with starter, main and dessert – yum!

4. Movie marathon
Grab your favourite movies, popcorn, sweets and lots of pillows and blankets for a cosy night in.

5. Hike
If it’s a nice day out hit the hills. It’s so nice to share beautiful views and fun day out with your group of friends. Remember to take lots of photos.

6. Weekend away
If you want to go all out then book into a luxurious hotel somewhere nice or rent a house and have a relaxing weekend in new surroundings with your friends. Wine and chats will be had!

7. Spa day
Head to the spa with your girls and go all out – facials, nails, massage, pedi. You’ll feel like a new person.
