So Father’s Day is looming once again – Sunday, June 16 -, and the problem is what to give Dad or Grandad for his special day.

Whether you’re giving Grandpa a gift from the little ones or clubbing together with siblings to purchase a collective present, the options are endless.

TK Maxx, Dunnes Stores, Penneys and Dealz (Pep & Co) have oodles of giftware both fun pressies or houseware. For the golfers, Pádraig Harrington menswear from Dunnes is always a welcome gift to receive.

For the younger sporting dads, a gift voucher from any of Dublin’s leading sportswear brands or shopping centres is another sensible but welcome present to receive.

Boots are offering fantastic reductions in Father’s Day Specials at the moment: Gucci Guilty Essence Eau de Toilette 90ml, was €115 now €65; Boots Men’s Grooming Edit Box, was €135 now only €45; Phillips S300 Nose Trimmer only €22 and Remington Limitless x 5 Rotary Shaver, was €189.99 now only €94.99.

Dublin restaurants and hotels have plenty to offer for a family lunch, over night stays or afternoon teas. If you want to give a really special treat, then why not make a visit to Redcastle Hotel in Donegal which offers spectacular beach walks and mountain climbing.

There’s gold aplenty at this award winning family hotel which is located on the shores of Lough Foyle, with fab cuisine (a new vegan menu has just launched), a 9-hole golf course, and the Captain’s Bar has an impressive cocktail list too. Surrounded by rambling parklands, lapping waters and offers vouchers which can be posted directly to the recipient.
