7 Cheap And Fun Activities To Do On A Sunny Day In Ireland

Well hasn't the weather been just glorious lately? If you're stuck in doing exams and are looking for a study break, we've got the list for you.

As students, hearing the word 'cheap' in a sentence is music to our ears. There are loads of really fun activities to do all over Ireland that won't break the bank. So grab a few mates, get your sunscreen at the ready and get ready for some fun in the sun.

1. Do the Bray to Greystones cliff walk

This is really one of the most wonderful walks in all of Ireland. It attracts people from far and wide and the 6.3km walk is a serious workout to boot.

2. Sit outside a café and go people watching


Head on over to Temple Bar and gawk at some of the interesting characters that walk by. It's actually super fun and cheap.

3. Jump off the 40 foot at Sandycove

If you're brave enough to brace the icy waters, jump off the 40 foot in Sandycove. It will get the whole tip-toeing out of the way and you'll be in and out in no time.

4. Have a picnic at your local park

Pack up your ham sambos, get the 7up at the ready and dig out your best picnic blanket. There's really nothing quite as nice as dining al fresco, even if it's just a few packets of Tayto and a flask of tae.

5. Do a park workout

When it's sunny outside, the gym isn't exactly the most appealing place to be. Grab a water bottle and use Mother Nature as your gym. You can do sprints on the grass, bench jumps and plenty of plyometric-style workouts.


6. Go visit an outdoor food market

This is always a good idea. An outdoor food market is where you'll find the freshest and most eco-friendly food. You're also supporting local producers while getting your vitamin D – winning.

7. Head to the coast and watch a sunset

There's really nothing quite like watching the sunset fall over the water. Grab a few beers, round up your mates and enjoy watching one of life's simplest pleasures.
