Let’s get Summer ready!

Top tips to make the most of Summer days to come

As the evenings stay brighter for longer, we want to help you make the most of the summer days and nights to come! After all, this year will be the first Summer in 3 years with no covid restrictions, so let’s make it a great one.

Whether the weather is good or not, let’s get prepping for a Summer of fun with friends, family, little ones and yourself.

I’m getting excited just thinking about it, and writing this has got me planning and organising my calendar for the weekends to come!

Summer At Home

First things first, let’s get the garden summer ready!

Most of us spent time and money on our gardens and outdoor space during covid. Having your outdoor space prepared for nice days is essential. Have you stocked up on some garden bunting to add some colour and fun to the space, some nice fairy lights or other lights fore a magical vibe, and of course something comfy to sit on and enjoy the summer evenings?! These for me are top of the list for the summer garden essentials and will definitely create that Summer vibe at home to share with family and friends.

Stock up on summer essentials

Have the suncream at the ready – and the after sun! Especially here in Ireland, let’s be honest, we do get excited when we see blue skies and the sun, but like your mammy always says, get your factor 50 on! We totally underestimate how strong the sun can be in Ireland!

Fill the house with some Summery scented candles to bring that Summer freshness indoors!

Hopefully you’ll be having some get togethers at home, so having some food covers is ideal for keeping food fresh!

Summer Days Out

This is what Summer is all about!

Getting out as much as you can, catching up with friends and family and soaking in that Summer feeling.

Picnics and markets in the park

Find time to just chill and have a picnic in the park. Pack your picnic goodies or pick up some yummy treats in a food market. Markets are back across the country so you’ll definitely find one somewhere near you to have a wander and enjoy some yummy artisan food! Fill your tote bag with all your daily essentials as well as adding to your Summer look.

Get BBQ ready

Almost time for the expected race to get burger buns for your BBQ! Get some garden BBQs booked in with the family and friends. These always end up being the best get togethers. I don’t know about you, but in our house we have BBQ for dinner every day the sun is out! There’s just something about eating in the garden that just feels more relaxing and like you’re on holidays. If you’re BBQing often might be worth picking up a BBQ apron to keep your clothes clean!

Go somewhere new for a day trip

Add a bit of fun and adventure to your Summer by heading somewhere you’ve never been before, for the day. Maybe there’s a nice beach not too far away that would be good fun with the kids, a hike you’ve wanted to do for a while now, or you’ve been recommended something new to do in Ireland. Don’t put it on the long finger – as Nike say, just do it!

Beach days

OK so I know this is Ireland, but when we get a good sunny day, the beach is the place to be! There are so many fabulous beaches on this little island that make you feel like you could be in the Caribbean! Have your beach set up ready to go (in a cool beach bag!) and hit the road early for a full day of beach fun. The kids will definitely remember their beach days when the Summer is over!

Summer festivals

Nothing quite like a sunny day at a festival. Soaking in the atmosphere and just feeling so happy and summery, if you can get a festival of some kind booked in,  then do!

Garden party

Much like a BBQ but without the cooking, a cocktail party in the garden for friends is another nice idea for a get together and will bring some Summer laughs to your calendar! –

Summer Breaks

Make sure to organise a trip away, after all this is what most of us think of when we think of Summer.

Whether it’s a staycation or a trip abroad, it’s nice to break up the Summer as well as enjoy a break away from the everyday routine at home.

Visit some friends or family, book a weekend break, or jet off to the sun for a week. You deserve it!

Or maybe you’d like to surprise someone with a surprise break away because you want to or maybe they just really need it! Present them with a personalised holiday scratch card to reveal the surprise trip!

So get in the car, hop the train, book a flight or a ferry and head off for some time to rest the mind and come back feeling refreshed and ready for the rest of the Summer.
