Skiing

Just because the weather is colder and the nights are darker, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy playing sport with your family or friends.

There are a number of different winter sporting activities that you can take part in when you visit Dublin that will ensure you have a fun-filled and exhilarating day while also getting into the mood for the changing season.

Little ones will love to get involved in some sporting excursions, and you can even arrange for some lessons if they’re less experienced and are keen to learn.

After a fun day spent with your loved ones, head back to your room at the O Callaghan Mont Clare Hotel Dublin, where a gorgeous, comfortable suite will be waiting for you. Just what you need after a day spent braving the colder elements. Try our suggestions to get your winter sporting activities started…

Get your skis on at Ski Centre Dublin

26 Rowan Avenue, Stilorgan Industrial Park, Dublin, Ireland

When you can’t manage a trip to the Alps but still want to experience some fun in the snow, this is the place you need to visit in Dublin. Take to the slopes, which make use of revolving technology and simulates real ski runs, allowing avid skiers to get in realistic length ski runs. If you’re a less advanced skier but fancy brushing up your skills, arrange a lesson, where an expert instructor will be able to help you develop your posture, balance and rotation control. You’ll be whipping down those slopes like a pro in no time.

Skiing can tire you out, so when your legs have had enough retreat back to your room at the O Callaghan Mont Clare Hotel Dublin. A soak in a long, hot bubble bath will ensure you avoid any achy limbs in the morning.

Skate about at Ice Skating Blanchardstown

Blanchardstown, Dublin, Ireland

You don’t need to be a professional figure skater to enjoy your time on the ice rink here, just good friends, family and a sense of humour, as you’re likely to fall over a fair bit! Now is a great time of year to go as the rink will be decorated for the festive season. If you’re taking little ones, the Kiddies Rink is perfect for them and is one of the big pulls for a lot of families who visit here.
