We're so lucky that we've got so many great places right on our doorstep in Dublin.
We're all in the mood to detox and exercise after the recent festivities, so why not get out and about with a short journey to someplace special today?
You'll surely find something you like among in one of these eight spots...
Wicklow is called the 'Garden of Ireland' with good reason. This stunning waterfall and gardens in Enniskerry was voted third best garden in the world by National Geographic.
Absolutely gorgeous spot.
A day's shopping never hurt anybody, and the discounts here are incredible with a great range of food choices too.
Super close, and you can hop on the DART if you don't feel like driving. Make sure to have some lunch in the Happy Pear while you're there.
Beautiful house and gardens with a real farm where you can feed the animals, they've got a brilliant playground too if you're bringing along any little ones.
This picturesque lake is also known as the Guinness lake, and the beach on the northern side is covered in bright white sand which was imported by the Guinness family.
This prehistoric monument in Meath is a world heritage site, older than the Egyptian pyramids. Really impressive walking around the place to think they built this so perfectly without the help of any modern machinery.
Another amazing Wicklow location that we just had to include in the list, the valley of the two lakes has great hiking trails and so much nature and wildlife.
This is the ultimate day trip from Dublin, just a short drive from the city and a seriously rewarding climb to the top, and you can treat yourself to lunch in Avoca after.
