Six Epic Date Night Ideas This Valentine’s


Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching and if you’re stuck for date-spiration we’ve got you covered.

Whether it’s your long-time bae, a first date, your gal pals, or a night for the lads, there’s so many fun activities and deadly venues in one place – Dundrum Town Centre.

Here’s some of our top picks for the most romantic evening of the year:

1. Rainforest Golf

The weather has been pretty temperamental (and freezing!) lately, so it can be hard to find fun date activities that stray away from the classic dinner and drinks.

This indoor mini golf course is great craic and it’s sure to impress your date – provided your golfing skills are on point.

If you’re feeling peckish after your game they serve pizza and wine in the café on site.

2. Cinema

A good movie never fails.

Grab a bag of buttery popcorn, sink into the comfy chairs and have a giggle.

If you want to have a catch up with your date/mates before the movie, Dundrum has some great offers available. From Sunday-Thursday you can get a two-course dinner in Cookes restaurant and your movie ticket for €25 each.

3. Dundrum’s The Mill Theatre

Soak up some culture and visit Dundrum’s theatre The Mill. Here you’ll find exciting shows, drama, visual art, comedy music and family events.

The play ‘Don’t Dress For Dinner’ is on from 12-16th of February.

4. Couples Massage At Edvard And Pink

This multi award winning beauty salon and spa offers a full spectrum of cosmetic, therapeutic and grooming services.

We bet you had no idea there was a spa in Dundrum!

This Valentine’s Day there are some great offers available.

If you purchase a body massage voucher you will receive a choice of a box of Butlers Chocolates or a luxury wax candle worth €32.

How romantic.

5. Dinner In Ananda

Hidden away up four flights of stairs in Dundrum, you’ll enter a colourful venue that feels like a cocoon. Water-lily chandeliers hang from the ceiling and rich cerise and lime colours on the walls will transport you to the hottest parts of India – welcome to Ananda.

A fancier take on your usual curry house but ideal for a special occasion, this restaurant is one that you need to visit if you haven’t done so already.

Some of the most beautifully presented (and tasty) food around.

This is sure to score you some brownie points.

6. Have A Pint In Pmacs

Pmacs is one cool spot.

Inside it’s dimly lit by long red candles, there’s old fashioned furniture everywhere and it’s just a good vibe. They serve all the classics, G&Ts, a pint of the black stuff and craft beers.

There’s also a heap of board games around the place so you can have a bit of craic together on the date playing Jenga or Connect 4.

If you decide to have a few but you’ve got the car with you, not to worry – there’s all-night parking from 6pm-8am in Dundrum Town Centre for just €3.

Cheers to that!

Date night just got a whole lot better.
