5 things to do in Cork with the gals this Women's Little Christmas

Note to self: it's WOMEN'S little Christmas, not LITTLE women's Christmas.

Anyone else get confused? Anyway, today is traditionally the day when the decorations come down and Christmas is officially packed away for another year.


If you're not quite ready to say au revoir to the festivities just yet, why not have one last hurrah and round up the gals to celebrate Nollaig na mBan today?

Yep, January 6 is the day to celebrate with all the ladies in your life. So whether you're looking for a nice chilled out time with your mum, sister or granny or if you're looking to squeeze in a few more glasses of prosecco with the girls, here are five things to do in Cork today.


1) Brunch in the Good Day Deli

We've mentioned this place before, but if you're in the market for some seriously tasty and healthy food today, check this spot out. They serve food from 10am-4pm and are located in Nano Nagle Place. The café serves a range of both savoury and sweet breakfasts, so the whole gang will be satisfied. It really is an experience to visit and the surrounding gardens make for a lovely stroll afterwards. Also perfect for a group shot afterwards!


2) Stay in and catch up

If like us you're strapped for cash, let that not stop you from having the craic on Women's Little Christmas. Have a few of you're nearest and dearest over for tea and chats and just take the afternoon to relax and catch up. Alternatively, why not bundle the whole gang into the car and get some fresh air on one of these gorgeous walks? Pack a picnic and grab some takeaway coffees and Bob's your uncle!

3) Go for a few early drinks

Aside from their delicious brunch, you can hop on down to The River Club in the afternoon as from 4:30- 8:30 pm DJ Aoife ONeill will be spinning a few records. If you're feeling a bit peckish, a small plates menu will be available to accompany your cocktails (i.e. an offer you can't refuse!) 

4) Grab some tapas in Arthur Maynes

Get the halloumi fries and rustic potatoes, you won't be disappointed! If you've never visited before, Maynes is located on Pembrook Street in the city centre. It's a gorgeous little candle-lit wine bar that used to be an old chemist. Every inch of the place is stocked up with vintage paraphernalia and the vibe is very chilled. Such a nice place to relax with a few close friends.

5) ABBA Tribute Night

If you're going all guns blazing, Cyprus Avenue is hosting an ABBAesque event at 8 pm tonight. Tickets are €15 and are available here.

Happy Nollaig na mBan to one and all!
