Sometimes the prospect of spending the day at a shopping centre can stress you out — but remember, not all shopping centres are created equal.

If you find yourself in Liffey Valley for the day, there's plenty of places that'll keep you amused. We've had a look to see how you might happily while away hours at the centre.

Here's where you need to go.

1. Eason

Maybe your other half is on a solo shopping mission and you're left to your own devices — this is the perfect time for a bit of reading.

Make your way to Eason and pick yourself up a magazine or a book, before heading to BBs café where you can blissfully delve headfirst into your reading material, while periodically sipping on a coffee.

2. Gourmet Burger Kitchen

You're here for the day and you need sustenance, so it may as well be the good stuff.

The Gourmet Burger Kitchen is as delish as the name suggests, with mouthwatering burgers on offer, like Avocado Bacon (crushed avocado, crispy bacon, salad, house mayo, house relish), Smoking Joe (dill pickle, smoked cheese, malt vinegar aioli, tomato, crispy onions, house relish) and The Mighty (two beef patties, aged Irish Cheddar, crispy bacon, garlic mayo, salad, relish, dill pickle).

3. Gino's

We're trying to put you in a positive state of mind here and we all know the quickest way to do that is through ice-cream.

Counted by us as one of the best ice-cream purveyors in Dublin, you'll find decadent gelato, crepes, waffles, milkshakes and coffee in all of Gino's locations.


4. The Hudson Rooms

Now you've been fed, it's time to be watered — and this New York-style spot is ideal for those purposes.

With an extensive range of classic cocktails to choose from, as well as signature blends like the whiskey and red vermouth concoction called Bottom Of The Casket, it won't take you long to forget your worries at The Hudson Rooms.

5. Vue Cinema

You've had some personal time, a hearty dinner followed by dessert and sipped on a few cheeky cocktails, but there's still one thing you need to do: take a trip to the movies.

Popcorn, sweets, and the hottest new release — doesn't that sound like the perfect end to a chilled day out to you?
