Put a spring in your step and keep your weekends fit and healthy during February and March. The Six Nations Championship has kicked off so why use it as motivation to get up and get out early and make the most of your free time before the games kick-off!
Start off by planning a hike or hill walk to soak up some fresh air, stunning views and a peaceful atmosphere while escaping Dublin City. Enjoy some of the best walking routes in Wicklow, which are only 30 minutes from the city centre. From the Sugar Loaf to Glendalough Valley or from Powerscourt to Lough Dan, there’s so much choice. Experience Irish nature up close as you journey through the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. Some of these walks vary from only one hour to three hours so you’ll be back in the city just in time for the rugby!
Once you’re back in town check into one of Dublin’s many traditional pubs to catch the boys in green and off to Angelina’s for a bite to eat after! Hopefully we’ll be able to recreate the feeling of Rugby Fever in the capital following Ireland’s back to back wins in 2014 and 2015.
This year Ireland will have only two home matches in the Aviva. The first will be on Saturday February 25th, Ireland will take on France and the final home game will be the last day of the tournament on March 18th against England. With matches taking place in the Aviva Stadium, Angelina’s is just 5 minutes away so it’s perfect for pre of post-match food and drinks.
