Here are some handy ideas to save you getting the wooden spoon on March 11. 

1. The Restaurant at Brown Thomas 

Browse expensive handbags and make-up before wandering up to Johnnie Cooke’s restaurant in Brown Thomas for a luxurious Godiva Afternoon Tea. 

It’s €35 per person and includes items like white chocolate crème brûlée and avocado and shrimp bruschetta. Yum.
