It’s Friday once again, and time to embrace the weekend. What do you have in mind for the next few days? Here are our suggestions:
- Kinsale, sometimes known as Ireland's 'gourmet capital', will play host to the 40th Kinsale Gourmet Festival this weekend.
The annual event is organized by Kinsale's eleven Good Food Circle restaurants, and is famed for fine dining in a fun, informal atmosphere. Find out more on Discover Ireland here.
- If you fancy breathing in the fresh air in Waterford, then the Nire Valley Autumn Walking Festival is for you. It offers walks to suit all levels and aims to celebrate the Comeragh Mountains. The Nire Valley is a deep valley cutting into the Comeragh Mountains. It is a place where tradition has survived, a place where we have time to chat to our neighbours and everything has a time and place, a time to cut turf, a time to shear sheep, a time to milk the cows, and a time for a quite pint and a good chat with your neighbours.

- Those of you in Cork should take advantage of the beautiful coastline this weekend! The Baltimore & the Islands Walking Weekend comprises guided walks along coastal areas on roads, paths, boreens and hills to celebrate the rich local history and a unique blend of people, land and seascapes. Some walks even include ferry trips to the islands.
All walks are guided by historians and people with local knowledge of Baltimore and the Islands of Roaringwater Bay - a place of outstanding beauty with a long and rich history. Read more here.
