It’s pretty damn lovely this week, so conditions are perfect for outdoorsy dates.
“But what to do!”, we hear you exclaim. Relax – as always, we got you.
Here are some sunny date ideas for your delectation and delight.
1. The Zoo
Sunny weather, a wide range of exotic animals (cute and scary) and loads of open spaces to walk around holding hands and taking in the atmosphere. Dreamy.
2. Hiking in Ticknock
Ticknock trail is a spectacular mountain walk if you’re looking for a bit of fresh air on a beautiful summer’s day. At the top you can see stunning views that span over Dublin City, Wicklow mountains and Bray Head.
The trail isn’t simple but in no way difficult, so you won’t be straggling along behind your beloved trying to catch your breath.

3. Dun Laoghaire
The possibilities are endless on a sunny day in Dun Laoghaire. You can get an ice cream in Teddy’s, a sit down meal in The Maritime Café or simply walk along the pier looking out into the blue.
You can’t really go wrong with those options.
4. Skywalking in Croker
There’s nothing quite like getting an incredible view of the city from over 17 storeys to get your date’s heart racing.
But before you go, just say a quick prayer that they’re not afraid of heights.
5. Get a horse and carriage around the city
No better way to see the city that being guided around via horse and carriage. A truly romantic, and different, way to get around. And contrary to popular belief, they’re not just for tourists.
6. Rainforest Adventure Golf, Dundrum
A hilariously brilliant ice-breaker. You’ll always have something to talk about, especially if you’re rubbish.
Which you probably will be. Mini golf‘s hard.
7. Cans in The Pav
Hey, if it ain’t broke…
8. Hire a bike in Phoenix Park
Picturesque, romantic, and, hey, you could even sort yourself out with a tandem bike if you really want to get intimate.
Hey, if it’s good enough for Beyoncé…
9. Picnic in the Iveagh Gardens
Dublin’s best kept secret. Right smack bang in the middle of everything, yet somehow not totally flooded with tourists. It’s pure magic, and the picture haven to find sanctuary in a normally busy Dublin.
Pick up some treats and have yourselves an epic evening amidst the trees in this absolutely dreamy location.
10. Cocktails in House
A whopper drink selection, a beautiful terrace area for chit-chat and a lightweight covering to have your back in Dublin’s erratic ever-changing weather? House has it all.
