Bored? Here are 5 fun things to do with your mates this summer

There's certainly no shortage of fun things you could do this summer!

You know what, maybe it's a good thing that Ireland isn't blessed with non-stop sunny weather during summer. As ridiculous a statement as that may be, hear us out.

Irish people have a tendency to make the most of any bit of sun we get. If that was the only weather we were getting, we'd probably just stop making as much of an effort.

In partnership with the brand-new Cadbury Boost+Protein Peanut bar, here's a few ideas for fun things you can do over the summer. Once you throw in a few mates, you're pretty much guaranteed a good time no matter the weather.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

Not one if you're afraid of heights, but Carrick-a-Rede is totally worth the trip if you have the stomach for it. On a clear day you can see as far as the coast of Scotland, and it's quickly becoming one of the most popular attractions on the whole island of Ireland.

There's a good bit of walking involved to get to it, so it's a decent workout as well. We haven't even mentioned the fact it was used as a filming location for Game of Thrones, which is all the more reason to visit it...

Coasteering in Delphi

Here's another good thing about this little island of ours; it has an incredible coastline. No place better to take it all in than along the shores of Connemara in Delphi Resort.

Coasteering isn't just a hell of a lot of fun, it's also a great way to burn up a sweat. You'll be doing everything from swimming and rock climbing to cliff diving, so you'll basically think of yourself as Bear Grylls by the end of the tour.

Surfing in Achill

The fact that Achill is a good place to go surfing is probably Ireland's worst kept secret, but there's a reason why it's so popular. It has some of the best surfing beaches in Ireland, and it doesn't really matter if you've never gone near a board before.

Regardless of your experience levels, we highly recommend booking a surfing lesson. The instructors will be there to help you along the way, but the views alone in this part of the world make it entirely worth a trip.

Kayaking in Dublin city

Yes, you read that right. Even if you were born and raised in our capital city, kayaking through the Liffey gives you a totally different perspective on things.

Again, don't worry if you have no experience with kayaking. It's not as difficult as you'd think and you'll have trained instructors there as well.

A bit of everything at SkyPark

It might not come as a surprise, but Ireland's largest adventure park offers a tonne of things to do. From Frisbee golf and archery combat to obstacle courses and 140-metre ziplines, SkyPark in Louth is the place to go.

There's something for all ages as well, with our pick of the bunch being the different aerial courses they have on offer. Ranging from Blue to Black in terms of difficulty, only the most experienced and skillful challengers are able to master their toughest course (you need permission from an instructor to even try).
