SOLAS – Car Boot Sale, Farmers Market & Great Food & Weather
Discover Excitement at SOLAS this Weekend
As the weekend approaches, SOLAS is gearing up for one of its most beloved events – the car boot sale. This event always draws a lively crowd, and the icing on the cake is the forecast for near-record October temperatures. It’s shaping up to be an unforgettable weekend at SOLAS.
A Week of Variety at SOLAS
The past week has been nothing short of spectacular at SOLAS. From hosting a mesmerizing 5-day circus to an intense chess tournament and even the Annual General Meeting of the Laois Chamber of Commerce, SOLAS has been buzzing with activity. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. The upcoming week will see five days of diverse school tours, where students will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in recycling as part of ‘The Fashion Disaster’ and ‘Eco Warrior, Steps to a Greener Life.’

SOLAS – SHOP & PLANTS
Discover our fantastic collection of indoor plants and terrariums that you’ll fall in love with. Terrariums, those sealable glass containers filled with soil and tropical plants, create a unique, self-sustaining ecosystem that allows these plants to thrive. We also offer a wide variety of small and large indoor plants. Having plants indoors not only improves air quality but also provides stress relief and enhances your overall sense of well-being.
The weekend weather forecast promises a warm and sunny weekend. It’s the ideal time to visit and dine in our covered food court. While SOLAS is always a great place to visit, it’s simply perfect on sunny autumn weekends.
