Top 10 QT weekend tips:

  1. Start your weekend off right!! Make the most of it. Why not rent a kayak between 6pm-9pm tonight – a great way to unwind on a Friday afternoon. Check out Neptune Kayak for more details here.
  2. Carlow Garden Festival is running this weekend so be sure to check out our blog post on it  here.
  3. Whats Sup? Why not try some stand up paddle boarding this weekend. One of our favourite places to try this is Neptune Kayak in Rostellan in Cork. A great relaxing way to spend a few hours! You might even get the chance to try some yoga on the board!! Check out our QT blog post on our experience here.
  4. Check out a great horse riding place, Whitechurch Equestrain Centre, Capall Geal in Cork(just 20min drive from Cork city). Great way to spend a few hours on a trek in the outdoors and with this beautiful sunshine it sounds like a great day out. Beautiful horses and a great day out to be had!
  5. Enjoy the outdoors with your kids!  We love Open Farms, especially Grenagh Open Farm in Cork. This Irish farm feels exactly the way a farm should be with only Irish animals, tractors and much more. Another favourite of ours if you are looking for some animals like you see in Fota is Rumley’s Open Farm. Check out our video of Rumleys Open farm here.
  6. Why not go for some afternoon tea? A spot of tea and relaxation? Our favourite places are Mary Anne’s Tearooms in Tralee and Castlemartyr Resort in Cork. Go on…treat yourself?!
  7. SURFS UP! Work off all the chocolate and get out on the water and try some surfing this weekend. We have heard of two great places for surf. Bundoran in Co. Donegal is known as the surf capital of Ireland and has lots of amazing surf, beaches and surf schools. Sligo is also one of our top tips for surf this weekend. Travel along the coast for some big waves, clean waters, great surfing and lots of craic along the way. A great weekend with friends.
  8. Try some of the amazing walks around the country.  Take Ballyhoura in Limerick(If it’s good enough for Kimye) or even the Ballycotton cliff walk in Cork. A great way to spend an hour(hopefully we will get an hour of sunshine or even dry weather!).
  9. Go out for dinner as a family or even for some desserts. Have a look at some of our top picks for food on our delicious foods section here.
  10. Saturday morning, load up the bikes and go on a bike trail in Ballyhoura in Limerick with Trailriders. Check out our recent video that we just launched. Now you see and feel the adventure before you go! Enjoy!
  11. Ballyhoura Horse Trails in Kilfinane, Limerick has lots of treks this weekend. Why not go on a trail with them and enjoy the countryside. Check out our experience here.

Looking forward to another busy weekend filming next week in CROATIA. We are off filming in Croatia for the next two weeks with Sail Aweigh. Be sure to follow our adventures on twitter #OnTheQTCroatia
