Start with a morning workout at #NoFilter Fitness

There is no better way to get your day started that sweating it out in a group workout class. The best part about #NoFilter Fitness? It is an all women gym so feel no pressure to keep up with or impress any guys at the gym. Enjoy a variety of classes like Bootcamp, Clubbercise, Totally Shredded, Cardio Sculpt, Pilates, Dance Fit, Barbell Pump, TRX and much more.

Grab a delicious breakfast at a local KC Peaches

You will need to get some fuel in you after that good workout. Head on over to a local KC Peaches and order yourself a delicious and healthy breakfast. You will have to try their avocado toast with poached eggs or oats with fruits and nuts. If you want something heavier, you could get their full Irish breakfast or pancakes. Yum!

After you are full, head on over to Chipped 

There is nothing better than getting a fresh mani & pedi to make you look good and feel good when traveling. Chipped is the first ever subscription nail salon in Dublin, so no need to hassle over the immediate payment! Come on in at anytime of the day or even late at night if you want a touch up or a whole new color to look your best around Dublin.

Head out looking great to explore Dublin

Spend the rest of the afternoon walking around Dublin to see things like Phoenix Park for tea and a bite to eat, the Guinness Storehouse tour, or Grafton street for shopping, pubs, music, and street performers. Walk across the river Liffey via the Ha’Penny bridge to see more of Dublin and learn about its rich history. If you are looking to get a little out of the city center, visit the beautiful Botanical Garden. There are so many different ways to spend your day trips in Dublin, and many things to see, so these are some of our favorite options.

Go home to get refreshed and changed

You will want to shower after the gym and a few errands, so head back to your hotel to refresh, eat, and get changed so you can enjoy the rest of your day. Slip into a cute dress or whatever you love best and style it up with your favorite pieces from Sandia Dublin Accessories, like a stunning necklace or fun earrings.

Get your glam on with Empower

If its a vacation, so you might as well spoil yourself.  Getting your make up done is such a treat, what could be better than booking the amazing  Aisling Powell come over and do your makeup. Make the day even more special by popping some bubbles to start the night off.

Go see a show at the Abbey Theatre

Now that you’re all dressed up, it’s time to go out. The Abbey Theatre is a great way to spend an evening. This is a less touristy way to spend your day trips in Dublin but it is such a fun time and well worth the visit.

And from there? Well, the night is young and the world is your oyster. From gigs in Whelan’s to dancing the night away on Harcourt Street, or sipping margarita’s on George’s Street.

    I truly enjoyed how cleverly you included fitness, food, style, education (art / theater) in a single article and made me want to do it all. While I know your article and brand is women-focused, this idea will be super hit with anyone who wants to make their day in Dublin an unforgettable treat. Fitness, Relaxation, Shopping, Theater – it’s like an absolute party for heart, soul, body and mind all packed in a single day full of adventure and self-nurture. This is what I call the #INSPIRE campaign. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

  6. I’ve been thinking about visiting Dublin for ages now! I was actually talking about it with my girl friends the other day. After looking at your pictures, I wouldn’t mind going there to do some photos of my own too!
