Having a few quiet weekends might not be such a bad thing in the lead up to Christmas. There are countless things that can be enjoyed from the comfort of home too. For some inspiration, here are our top picks on the things you can do over the coming days.


1. Visit Little Lane Coffee for a Tasty Treat

This is the perfect spot to grab a coffee to go as you take a stroll around Galway City. They even have sweet bites you can get alongside your hot drink, like their delicious gluten-free, vegan smores. Make sure to stop in!

2. Check Out Your Local Walks

Why not try checking out your nearby public walks. You never know what you might discover near you. Portumna Forest Park has a 13th-century abbey on its grounds worth checking out. Just make sure you’re prepared with wellies and warm clothes for exploring.

3. Elevate Your Photography Skills

Join in on Saturday, November 7th at 8pm for an online workshop instructed by portrait and fashion photographer Jessica Kobeissi (@jessicakobeissi). The class will focus on portrait photography and developing your photography style.

4. Start your Christmas Shopping

Some may say it’s a little early to be getting into the Christmas spirit, but if there was any year to start early, this is it. With all that has happened in the world, there is absolutely no harm in getting into the festive swing of things in advance. We all want to make a big effort to shop local this year. Many local businesses, like Public Romance, have an online presence so why not check them out?
