School is almost out and the weather is already balmy.
And this weekend, the Irish Independent starts our celebration of the best of Irish summer.
In a special series in Weekend magazine, we nominate the greatest places in Ireland to spend time this holiday season.
This Saturday in Weekend, we count down Ireland's 30 best family days out.
From surfing in Donegal to sheep shearing in Connemara, our guide takes you through some guaranteed memorable days out.
Travel writer Fran Power puts forward a list of fun family days.
And we want you to list your summer favourites.
Join in the conversation by emailing email@example.com, or on Twitter using the hashtag #BestIrishSummer or at Independent Travel on Facebook.
