Our Staff’s Favourite Outdoor Activities

With 2021 well underway, we at The Butler’s Pantry are very fortunate to continue to be able to keep our 10 shops open and are delighted to still provide our loyal customers with the service and products they deserve.

Our New Nourish Pack has been very popular and is joined by our Winter Comfort Foods Hamper. This combines great meal options made from the best Irish produce and is delivered nationwide. So, for a personal pick-me-up or a thoughtful gift for a friend, The Butler’s Pantry is at hand.

Our Restart and Reset Initiative encourages our customers to enjoy the outdoors within the permitted limits whilst eating healthily and staying positive.

Whatever your level of fitness, exercise is great for body and mind and can be incorporated into your daily routine. We suggest to you some our staff’s favourite outdoor activities which will keep you fit and active during the month of January.


Outdoor swimming has become very popular in recent months and despite the winter temperatures people have continued to brave the freezing waters for their dose of Vitamin Sea. Whether you decide to go just to dip your toe or have a quick plunge, a swim in the sea is refreshing and exhilarating and will set you up for the day. Some excellent spots include; Seapoint, Killiney, The Forty Foot, Bullock Harbour and Portmarnock Beach.


Cycling has become popular as an outdoor activity and new improvements made to Dublin’s cycle paths and cycleways make it safe and accessible. There are many varieties of biking from the roads to the mountains and commuting. It’s a great way to get around your city whilst getting some air in the lungs.


As a form of exercise running still stands out as the most popular and can be enjoyed by all ages. Its flexibility and safety can be enjoyed day or night throughout the winter months.


A short or long walk can be a great way to get some fresh air while staying in your bubble. Short healthy breaks for those working from home can make walking a pleasant outlet anytime throughout your day.
