7 Of The Best Places To Enjoy The Sun In Dublin For The Weekend

Embrace the outdoors, the best places in Dublin sunny weather

Being so blessed with this a four day weekend of sun, there's only one thing to do; Scan Dublin city for the place to lounge out, relax and get a farmers tan.

Whenever there's good weather, you can always depend on Irish people to be out all day, taking over the usually empty parks, that will now be swarming with people catching a few rays. With that in mind, we have put together a list of some of the best and FREE areas in Dublin that are perfect for a couple of cans.

1) The Canal:

The Canal stretches it's way all through the outskirts of Dublin city, with one of the more popular places being by the Barge in Charlemont. This spot usually fills up after 5pm in the evenings, when everyone is finished work and hoping for some sunny pints by the canal with some mates.


2) Pheonix Park:

Even without a concert, the Phoenix Park is still a great spot to hang out during the sunny weather. With views of Áras an Uachtaráin, Dublin Zoo and being surrounded by deer, the Pheonix Park is definitely worth a visit during the week.

3) Stephen's Green:

Of course, this is an obvious one, but we can't leave it out. Smack bang in the middle of the city, it's the best place to spend your lunch break during a busy day at work, as well as enjoying some icecreams with your friends or family.


4) Malahide/Portmarnock:

If you're looking for an escape from Dublin city, the next best place to enjoy the sun is any of the beaches that surround the city. For example, Malahide, Portmarnock, Bray etc are all gorgeous in the sunny weather, and not too much of a trek.


5) Forty Foot:

Near Dún Laoghaire, another great spot to hang in the sun, Forty Foot is one of the most popular places to go during the short good weather every summer. Voted one of the best places to swim by The New York Times, it never fails to be a good time. Although, it's not much of a swim than an in and out jump, Forty Foot has been enjoyed by many for decades.

6) Botanic Gardens:

This is definitely one of the most popular places for people of all ages. Please exercise caution if you suffer heavily from hay fever. With stunning gardens, walk ways and fountains, this is a great place to spend your day in the sun.


7) Your Own Back Garden:

If you're stuck at home, don't let that weather go to waste! Stick out a few chairs, a table, get a barbecue going and invite some friends around. A few cans with the lads will never go amiss.
