Summer fun

Beefing up your backyard playground? If you want to get your kids out into the fresh air this summer, and you’re a fan of Littlewoods Ireland, they’ve got a number of discounts including a single swing set for €22 (reduced from €45), a double swing and glide set for €76 (reduced from €85) and a Small Wonders slide for €76 (was €95).

They’ve also got up to 50% off a range of electrical items.

School savings

Summer is here, secondary schools are finished and primary schools are eagerly looking forward to the start of the holidays later this month. Stocking up on school supplies mightn’t be to the forefront of your mind at the moment, but it’s actually a great time to scout out some deals before the prices rise. At the moment, Marks and Spencer is offering 20% off its range of school uniforms for girls and boys, with shirts starting at €5.50, jumpers at €8.25 and skirts at €11.

Take the ferry

Irish Ferries is running a flash sale on sailings to Britain across the Irish Sea. If you book by midnight on Friday June 10, you can save 20%, while kids also travel free. For more information, terms and conditions, see

Revolution 1916

Looking for something to do this weekend? Why not grab a discount ticket to the Revolution 1916 exhibition for €9 (normally €15) from Groupon? Located in the Ambassador Theatre on O’Connell Street, the exhibition examines the backdrop to the events of the Easter Rising, and the consequences both for those who took part and the country as a whole, alongside a large collection of artefacts from 1916.

See for the fine print.

Web development

Interested in learning more about HTML5 and website development? Udemy is offering a beginner’s website creation course for free (normally €20) for a limited time, with topics including HTML5 basics, adding media files, HTML forms and plenty more besides.
