Women’s Mini Marathon- A tradition that started over thirty years ago, with more than over 40,000 participants. This is a perfect occasion to raise money for your favourite charity and get some exercise.


If you want to take your food out and enjoy Dublin city, have a Picnic. Just you bring along ham and cheese sandwich, Capri sun, tayto crisps and you are laughing! There are so many places where you can sit out in the sun, with some friends, i.e. the Iveagh gardens, St. Stephens Green, Merrion Square, Herbert Park, Garden of Remembrance, St. Anne’s Park, along the canal or even your local park… Just make sure you tidy and clean your rubbish after you!


If the weather is too hot, why not have a dive in the 40 foot or even sit on the edge of a rock at killiney beach. Just grab towels, sun cream and togs. Don’t even have to take the car, just get the dart southbound to Sandycove and walk to the sunny beech or to killiney where you pretend you are in Spain. Isen’t Dublin in the sun the best place to live!


Whatever you get up this weekend have fun, be safe and come back to us in one piece next week!
