Different Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day in Northern Ireland

Posted on February 5, 2015 @ 11:35 AM in Adventure

When it comes down to it, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about the clichéd flowers and candlelit dinners.  It’s about making the time to be together, creating memories and most importantly having a laugh with the one you love.  Good thing then that there are plenty of outdoor experiences you can enjoy together for a Valentine’s day with a difference in Northern Ireland. 

Check out our 6 non clichéd ways to spend this February 14th:

Valentine’s Special, Jungle NI, Moneymore, Co. Derry~Londonderry, Sat 14th Feb
To celebrate Valentine's Day The Jungle NI are offering 10% off their activities on Sat 14th Feb. Swing from the tree tops together on a high ropes course, race each other through the forest on Segways or buckle up and roll downhill in a giant zorbing ball together. 

Have A Go Sea Kayaking, Simply Sea Kayak, North Coast, Co. Antrim, Sat 14th Feb
Try something new together with the iconic North Coast as your backdrop.  Perfect for first time paddlers you’ll be kitted out and learn the basics in sheltered waters before heading out on the North Coast Sea Kayak Trail taking in sights and scenery only accessible by kayak.

Valentines, Glamping Trip, East Coast Adventure, Mournes, Co. Down, Sat 14th Feb
Spend the Night under the stars in Rostrevor with the views of Knockbarragh Valley in East Coast Adventures brand new glamping pods. Located in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, within 4 miles of the picturesque village of Rostrevor head out for a hike or hit the Mountain Bike trails in Rostrevor or Castlewellan, just a 20 minute drive away. Enjoy a meal or a drink or two in nearby Rostrevor or Warrenpoint before snuggling up for the night.

Valentines Ideas

Valentine’s Game of Thrones Archery Experience, Clearsky Adventure Centre, Castle Ward, Co. Down, Sat 14th & Sun 15th Feb
If you love Game of Thrones as much as you love each other then this is the perfect date for Valentines. Channel your inner Ygritte & Jon and take aim in the very place where the BAFTA award winning TV show was filmed. You’ll get to dress up, and receive expert instruction in the recreated Winterfell set. Afterwards why not take time to explore the 12km of off road cycling and walking trails at Castle Ward on the stunning shores of Strangford Lough?

Valentine’s Night Lovers Walk, Far and Wild, Co. Derry~Londonderry, Sat 14th Feb
What could be more romantic than a walk under a star-lit sky?  This guided wild wander will take place on countryside paths through some of Derry’s best kept secret locations before ending in a cosy country pub where you can enjoy a drink or two together.

Valentine’s Activity Day, Share Discovery Village, Co. Fermanagh, Sat 14th Feb
Choose between archery, climbing or mountain biking from only £9pp for a one hour session.  Take aim together, encourage each other to the top of the climbing wall or head out on the bikes and race each other on the outdoor trails.  

Whatever you get up to have a great Valentine’s Day in Northern Ireland!
