There’s something very special about sunny summer days spent by the ocean, relaxing, reading your book and going for swims. Whether you’re planning to enjoy the sunshine here in Ireland this summer, or whether you're planning a trip abroad, we wanted to list some essentials we think will help you hit the beach in style.
First on the list is a good book. RTE has a great selection of 10 beach books you might enjoy this summer.
When you’re packing for the beach, sunscreen is a must (even in Ireland 😉). Nowadays you can find reef and coral safe sunscreen, so you can protect your skin while protecting the ocean at the same time.
Another essential is a good sun hat and stylish sunglasses. At Quinlan’s we have a wonderful range of sun hats that will allow you to look great and be protected from the sun - they are UPF50+ Certified UV Protection - .
To have a bit of extra sun protection, kimonos are a great option, they’re light, easy to wear and create a stylish beach look.
We love the bright and colourful Dock & Bay towels. They’re lightweight, compact and quick drying. For kids there’s a poncho version perfect for changing under at the beach and a very cute Girafe Hooded towel for babies. No more awkward changing with a towel around your waist.
Now! Who’s ready for the beach? ⛱️😎☀️
