James Fenton

Just like that, it’s all over for another year.

But just because Christmas is finished doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of the rest of your holidays.

Shake of all that turkey and mulled wine with some of these refreshing activities around Dublin today.

1. Funderland

If you didn’t go to Funderland as a kid, then you’re not Dubliner. Get the gang together for a day of thrills and spills at the RDS. More info here.

2. Leopardstown Racing

Ya can’t bate a day at the races over the Christmas. Get your gladrags on and have a few flutters at one of the biggest racing events on the Irish calendar.

3. Ice Skating

A nice way to spend the day with the whole family. Ice skating at both Blanchardstown and Dundrum are open on St. Stephen’s Day.

4. Natural History Museum

Have a ramble into town and go for a stroll around the dead zoo.
