5 Glossy Things To Do This Weekend

We recommend a SPA DAY at The Kingsley, dinner in Galway and a trip to KILDARE VILLAGE


WHERE: Hard to believe it’s almost the end of October, when many formal gardens close for the season. This weekend Lismore Castle Gardens and Gallery are celebrating their last open day of the year on Sunday 15, from 3 – 6pm. Visitors will be able to see the Anthony McCall exhibition at the Gallery and hear Luke Fowler’s sound installation in the Upper Garden. With vino on hand and some music, it promises to be a lovely Sunday afternoon. www.lismorecastlearts.ie.


WHO: Our jewellery editor Natasha Sherling will be at Só Collective in Kildare Village on Friday October 13, from 11am – 12pm. Part of the Village’s Make It Yours event she will be presenting her collection, as well as giving advice on how to revamp jewellery and offering mini-appraisals. There’ll be special discounts to be had too. www.natashasherling.ie.


HOW: If you’re heading to Galway for the weekend then the newly-launched Friday Supper Club at Tribeton may be of interest. It will run from 6pm – 8pm each Friday until the end of November. In the Art Deco surroundings guests can enjoy a four course dinner, including a bottle of wine, for €69 for two. After dinner, stay and enjoy live music from John Gaughan and indulge in some of the venue’s award-winning cocktails – it won Ireland’s Best Gin Bar this year. www.tribeton.ie.


WHAT: We’re already taking Vitamin D to counteract SAD and are eager to experience the Autumn Sunshine package at The Spa in The Kingsley. This consists of a luxurious gold and caviar body wrap with soothing massage and a mini facial with a glass of Prosecco to finish. Available until October 31, the indulgent treat is €110pp for 90 minutes. For a booking contact 021-4800570 or email thespa@thekingsley.ie.


WHY: To Drogheda to see Mario Sughi’s exhibition A Place To Rest at Droichead Arts Centre. The Italian-born, Dublin-based artist says of his artistic technique, “My interest is in colour, form, composition and light,” and the large-scale canvasses have certainly captured our imagination. Afterwards, we’re heading The Hops at the d hotel, for dinner, situated along the river Boyne. www.thehops.ie.
