Here's how you can make the most of your alcohol-free weekends...


Taking a break from alcohol this month? You don't have to spend every weekend at home during Dry January, just because you're going alcohol-free.

Instead, we can all use Dry January as the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and try new and exciting activities that we wouldn't usually go for.

That's why Heineken® 0.0 want to help you make the most of Dry January by giving away LOADS of amazing cash prizes this month.

There's still time to enter and WIN their final few €1,000 giveaways right HERE.


With that in mind, we've put together the ultimate bucket list of exciting outdoor activities to try out before Dry January comes to an end.

Here are our top picks....


If you're looking for an exciting adrenaline rush, zip-lining is the ultimate outdoor activity to try out this January.


Getting your pals together to take on an exciting high ropes experience is the perfect way to spend a weekend, and Zipit Outdoor Adventures have some exciting zip-lining experiences in Roscommon, Dublin and Cork, which you can find more info on here.

Mountain biking

If you want an active day outdoors, there are loads of different mountain biking trails for you to explore this month.


Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails in Newry and the red trail in Davagh Forest, Co. Tyrone, are both ideal for experienced bikers, with some exciting rock features and uphill patches that are not for the faint hearted.

If you're a beginner, Castlewellan is the perfect option, with trails for all abilities available.

Escape rooms

Ready to test your problem solving skills? An exciting escape room is the perfect January activity, giving you and your pals an activity that takes a bit of brain power, but is sure to be a bit of craic as well. Ireland as loads of incredible escape rooms for you to try out, but Great Escape Rooms in Galway has three very different and very exciting experiences to choose from.

Crazy Golf

For a relaxed afternoon with your mates, crazy golf is an easy-going activity that's usually a bit of fun as well. There's countless crazy golf courses around the country for you to try out, but Crazy Golf Kenmare pairs an exciting 18-hole course with some incredible views of the Wild Atlantic Way coastline.

More on that here.

Rock climbing

When it comes to testing your strength and agility, a day spent rock climbing is one of the ultimate outdoor activities. Ireland has loads of incredible outdoor rock climbing locations, but Carlingford Adventure Centre cater for everyone with 8 different climbs of varying difficulty.

You can find more info on that here.


While it might be a bit cold to go for a January swim, you can still make the most of a nearby lake or coastline by organising a kayaking trip for you and your friends. Some companies like Kayakmór in Co. Galway offer year-round half-day kayaking tours along the Galway coastline, which you can find more info on here.


If you want to drag your friends along on your Dry January adventures, an exhilarating paintballing session is the ultimate sober activity. Oakfire Adventures in Derry provides an outdoor paintballing adventure for you and your pals, with the option to do half or full day experiences. You can find more info on that here.
