Now that restrictions are easing across the country, we can finally stretch our legs and explore the world outside of our 20km.

Across the country, galleries, museums, libraries, and cultural attractions have opened their doors, and we have a list of locations for you to explore.

If you're not quite ready to go further afield, however, we've included a few events for you to get involved with from the comfort of your couch.

Cruinniú na nÓg, online
Cruinniú na nÓg 2021 takes place on Saturday, June 12, but there are plenty of workshops and events to keep your kids busy in the run up. One workshop that caught our eye was Garageland, proudly supported by RTÉ 2XM.
