Whether you plan to spend Valentine's Day with your other half, your best friend or you simply want to treat yourself to something special - in the words of Lizzo, "it's a me, myself kinda attitude" - we have a heap of activities happening on February 14th in Ireland.
Singles Party, Dublin
If you're a single pringle who is ready to mingle, head out to McGowans of Phibsboro on Valentine's Day. The event kicks off at 9pm sharp and is held upstairs in the nightclub. Join on on the games or just mingle with other singletons - no apps needed!
Comedy Night, Cork
Want to laugh it up with your love? Look no further than Tony Cantwell's Pure Grá tour. Fresh from sell-out shows at the Dublin and Edinburgh Fringe, the cult-comedian is taking to the road for his first-ever Irish tour.
Spend Friday the 14th with the Facebook-famous comic as he delivers a night of stand up, sketches, and songs in Cyprus Avenue at 7:30pm.
Proposal Package, Donegal
If you've decided to 'put a ring on it', there's no better spot to get down on one knee than Lough Eske. The hotel's new proposal package wallows you to go up, up and away, in a one hour and thirty-minute helicopter ride along the rugged North Coast of Ireland.
Wherever you decide to pop the question on this romantic journey, the proposal planner will send you off with a picnic basket of celebratory champagne and sweet treats for you and fiancée (or fiancé) to enjoy mid-air!
Sunset Tour, Wexford
Located at the tip of the Hook Peninsula in Co. Wexford, Hook Lighthouse will be home to one of the most dreamy date spots in Ireland this Valentine's Day. Arriving at 4:30pm sharp, you and your beloved can watch the sunset from the balcony of the tower at the oldest original operating lighthouse in the world. After sunset, retire back to the watch-room for some canapés and cocktails.
