Banish the summertime blues
If you’re in need of some inspiration on activities around the country here's 25 great ideas for you
A study carried out to mark ESB Tree Week found that one-third of children in Ireland have never climbed a tree. If yours haven’t – or it’s been a while since you yourself have had your feet off the ground – head to Rock Farm in Slane in Co Meath, where you can get into the highest reaches of a sturdy old oak. Thanks to a system using a tree surgeon’s harness and ropes, it’s as safe as it is exhilarating. A two and a half hour tree climbing experience costs €39 for adults and €29 for kids. There are lots of other adventures on offer too.
