Things to do this week
Take to the waters off Clare in search of marine wildlife with Dolphinwatch or paddle your own canoe in the Shannon Blueway with Lough Allen Adventures. If you are more of a landlubber you can rock out at the Monaghan Harvest Times Blues Festival instead.
Or if witty words are more thing, head to the Oscar Wilde Festival in Galway or enjoy some tall tales at the Cape Clear Island International Storytelling Festival.
