Up for a summer office outing? Here are five great ideas to consider this year

Plenty of great things you can do on your next office outing!

Seeing as we spend so much time with our colleagues, it’s only right that we get out to enjoy a bit of fun every now and then. Or find a way to beat them all in some sort of challenge or competition.

There’s no shame in wanting to get one over your colleagues. This isn’t a place of judgement.

Axe throwing

We seriously doubt you’ll ever be able to find a sport more satisfying than axe throwing. Not only is it a hell of a lot of fun, but it takes a lot of skill to get your aiming right and hit the bullseye.

It’s become increasingly popular over recent years, so it shouldn’t be hard to find somewhere to take your work crew. With different packages available in both Dublin and Wicklow, we highly recommend Axe Club.

VR gaming

If you really want to make your work crew feel like they’re away from the office, how about putting them into a different reality? VR gaming has become increasingly popular over recent years, with advanced technology making it feel increasingly more immersive.

We tried our hand at Zero Latency in Sandyford a few months ago, and it was nothing short of incredible. They cater to work parties as well, with a games room upstairs where people can chill out while they wait their turn in the VR gaming arena (up to eight players at a time per round).

Hit the waves

Office outings don’t have to be indoors, and there’s no reason why you can’t burn up a sweat as well. We’re blessed with some fantastic surfing beaches in Ireland, so why not test them out with your workmates?

You don’t need to be a full-time surfing master to enjoy it either, as booking a class is the best way to go. Achill Surf in Mayo cater to all experience levels, and it’s never too late to learn!


You can’t really go wrong with this one. Go-karting never really gets old at all, and the competitive nature of it makes it ideal for a work trip.

With karts that reach 63 km/h and an three different indoor tracks, Kylemore Karting in Dublin is a good shout.

Indoor sports

Sticking with indoor activities, Skill Zone in Dublin lets you try your hand at everything from rugby and soccer to baseball and wall climbing. The best part is, it’s all indoors so you don’t have to worry about the weather.

Plus, there is a leaderboard in question that will make sure whoever does best will earn office bragging rights for life.
