From exciting adventure trails to a relaxing night with your friends, here's six things to do tomorrow to forget about the dreaded results.

1. Adventure Rooms Dublin

Use that exam brain power with Dublin’s escape rooms. Participants work together and solve puzzles to escape mysterious rooms within a given time frame. Being trapped in a locked room with your closest friends is the perfect way to bond before you all head off to different colleges. With two locations and several different formats this is the perfect opportunity to experience the global phenomenon and celebrate your results with your friends.

2. Jump Zone

You may have failed to reach academic heights in your Leaving Cert, but at Jump Zone in Sandyford you can reach for the stars in a different way. This 34,000 square foot facility has two zones where the entire floor is made out of trampolines and is the only one of its kind in all of Europe. The daily game of dodgeball will help to get out any frustrations at friends who swear they didn’t study despite getting 9 A1s.

3. Gravity Climbing Centre

Don’t let your results drag you down! At Gravity Indoor Climbing centre you and your friends can scale the rock walls in their bouldering section. Climbing is athletic and tiring, you’ll be thinking more about your sore muscles than your results. Bouldering is great for beginner climbers and can be enjoyed alone or in a group.

4. Rainforest Adventure Golf

You’ve beaten the competition in your exams, now it’s time to get overly competitive with your closest friends while holding tiny golf clubs. This indoor mini-golf centre has two distinct rainforest themed courses. Lush tropical foliage and animatronic monkeys will create the perfect backdrop for a night of thrill and skill.

5. Light House Cinema

The stress is over, it’s time to sit back and relax with a good movie at Light House Cinema. Showing everything between Opera and Back to the Future, this small independent cinema will be a well-deserved break from the stress of the past year. After a sleepless night of anticipation a film is the perfect relaxation especially in such an aesthetically pleasing location.

6. Nando’s

This year Nando’s is offering free chicken to everyone receiving their results. Just show up to any location with your results, some ID and spend at least €7 to receive a free quarter chicken or Firestarter. There aren’t many benefits to sitting through several weeks of gruelling exams but Nando’s has just made all of the stress worth it.
