Whether you're new to the dating game and need some good date ideas or you're an old timer just trying to keep the flame alive, here are the best ideas for dates this winter.

It's officially cuffing season which means you'll probably find yourself with a bae for the winter months and while coupling up is easier this time of year, coming up with date ideas that won't leave you frozen is a bit more difficult. 

Once again, it’s team U to the rescue because we’ve gone and come up with 7 winter date ideas that will make you want to couple up ASAP.

Ice Skating

Yeah, yeah, it’s a cliché but we like it. Ice skating is the best way to embrace winter and why not finish the date off by going for a hot chocolate or a gingerbread latte? You never know, you might be the next Torvill and Dean.

Netflix & Chill

Has there ever been a better time of year to Netflix & Chill? If you want to be extra, (we always do) build yourself a pillow fort and pick a TV show to binge. Couple goals right there.

Go For A Walk

But not just any walk, do the Howth cliff walk. Most people opt for this walk in the summer time but there’s no reason why it can’t be a winter activity too. The views are equally as stunning and once you get walking, you’ll be warm in no time.

Take Part In A Pub Quiz

What better way to introduce your new bae to your mates than entering a pub quiz together? Text that group chat and get your thinking caps on for the funniest team name.

Go To The Cinema

Okay so we know going to the cinema is what you learn in dating 101 but rather than just going to see any aul thing, go see a Christmas movie. There are tonnes of great festive films showing all around Ireland this year. Sneak in some gingerbread and you’ve got yourself the perfect winter date.

Visit The Zoo...At Night.

So you’re going to need to wrap up for this one but a cute coat paired with a beanie is the perfect date night outfit. Wild lights at Dublin Zoo is going to make for a picture perfect date.

Book A Mini Break

Sometimes the best way to escape the cold is to escape this island. Booking a fun weekend away somewhere where the climate is a bit more forgiving is a great way to not only stay warm but a true test to see if you’re new bae is there to stay.
