Embrace the great outdoors with What’s On this weekend

Embrace the great outdoors with What’s On this weekend

While dreaded wintry conditions have come back (unwelcomely) to our shores, Ireland is battling through with the outdoor activities this weekend. Whether you’re a health nut, a spectator or in it all for a good cause, there’s something for everyone. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


Saturday (early): Do something good at Darkness into Light

The Darkness into Light project is one of those really inspiring events that has evolved into something massive across the country (and beyond). The run, in aid of Pieta House, has grown year on year and in 2018, over 200,000 people took part in 150 locations, in 16 countries across 5 continents. All of the money raised goes towards suicide prevention, and the symbolic nature of the run (starting in darkness and finishing at sunrise) is a really powerful thing for many of the participants. Runner-phobes, have no fear — you can take the route at your own pace too. There’s still time to register last-minute at darknessintolight.ie, but make sure to get to bed early tonight.

All weekend: Watch the brave divers at Red Bull Cliff Diving at Dun Laoghaire pier

We admit it: diving into the Irish sea is not top of our to-do list this weekend. But watching others do it? We could get on board. This Saturday and Sunday, head to Dun Laoghaire pier to watch the world’s elite divers going head to head in front of thousands of onlookers. And best of all? It’s a totally free event.

All weekend: Get some fresh produce at the Burren Slow Festival in Lisdoonvarna

Now in its 13th year, the Burren Slow Festival in Lisdoonvarna will bring you out of Dublin and to some of the best food and drinks producers, cooks, creators, eaters and writers in the country. Enjoy talks, demonstrations and pop-up dinners from chefs including Michelin stars Danni Barry and Takashi Miyazaki.

All weekend: Head to the mighty Wellfest at Royal Hospital Kilmainham

If you’re a lover of health, fitness, food and wellness, then no doubt you’ll be excited for WellFest this weekend. WellFest is Europe’s largest outdoor health and wellness festival, and is now the premier weekend for health and fitness lovers all across the country. While many of the attendees are well clued in about their health and fitness routines, lots of budding wellness lovers head to the festival to get much-needed information to kickstart a new lifestyle change.
