Out With is our online series that delves into the Outdoor lives of some of the country’s best known media and marketing professionals. This month, we hear from Carat’s Group Business  Director, Oilbhe Doyle.

1. Favourite thing to do outdoors

A dip in the 40 Foot, followed by a windswept walk along the coast with the promise of coffee.

2. Favourite place to shop – Shopping Centre/City Centre

Me and shopping are not friends, I usually buy clothes without trying them on, I need a personal shopper. Local artisan food shops are more my drawcard, let’s say Cavistons in Glasthule.

3. Favourite location for a weekend walk

Anywhere coastal, Bray to Greystones is a great one.

4. Favourite pub for a cosy drink

Finnegans in Dalkey.

5. Favourite park to visit

Killiney Hill, the zipline is so much fun!

6.  Your Hidden Gem

The Green Bean, Lee’s Lane Dunlaoire, they converted the old piggery into an artisan coffee shop, complete with a vintage “Slaughterhouse” clothes shop.

7. Favourite roadtrip to take 

Derrynane, the 6 hours of “are we there yet” once you reach the home of our great liberator, Daniel O’Connell.

8. Favourite OOH site/location

Metropoles before the East Link – always give me a good vibe – I’m usually heading to the airport.

9.  Favourite sports venue

Croke Park.

10. Favourite Irish beach

Curracloe, Wexford.

11.  Favourite location for some inspiration

Top of Killiney Hill, looking out to Howth, Bray and Dalkey Island.

12. Favourite mode of transport 

My bike.

13. All-time favourite OOH campaign

Warner Brothers, The Dark Knight Rises – especially the Luas Wrap 😉
