August is upon us, which means we are ready to go back cold weather, shorter days and the stress of assignments. You still have time to do things to end your summer on a great note.


Make the most of the fine weather out there. If you are craving something a little different, why not try kayaking in Wicklow? Located in Wicklow town, this activity will guarantee a fantastic experience for you and your friends. You can book this great day out at Wicklowkayaking.ie.


There is nothing better than attacking people with paint. If you don’t mind getting a bit messy, it’s definitely an enjoyable activity with friends before summer ends. Visit Skirmish Paintball for a great day out. The paintball facility consists of open fields, two castles, airplane bunkers, inflatable bunkers, airplanes, speedball arenas, swamps and woods. Everything you need for an exciting day out!

Go On A Surfing Trip

You need to go on a surfing trip with friends as it is guaranteed some laughs. TurfnSurf is located in Bundoran, Donegal. It’s a surf school and a hostel, so you don’t have to stress over accommodation! They offer surfing lessons daily and are accredited by the Irish Surfing Association (ISA). I would recommend this for a great weekend away with mates.

Wall Climbing

Awesome Walls Dublin is one of the largest indoor wall climbing centres in Europe. With over 2000 square metres of dedicated climbing surface, more than 1000 square meters of bouldering, 18m lead walls and ~ 250 climbing routes there really is something fun and challenging for everybody to try.

Escape Rooms

A rainy day? Try out an escape room. You and your friends are locked in a room and have to try and get out of it before time runs out. Weescape has locations in Dublin, Cork and Limerick. This intense experience will leave you absolutely shook.

Horse Trekking

Get a scenic horseback tour with Wicklow Equi Tours through a setting of your choice! This is a perfect day out with friends to explore Wicklow’s breathe-taking scenery. You can choose a full day or a half day of trekking.
