I am taking the summer off work this year and will be attending Euro 2012 in Gdansk/Poznan (mid June), the Galway Races (end of July), and the London Olympics (early August). I am from Ireland but have lived in North America for more than a decade so spend limited time in Europe every year and am out of the loop in terms of happenings over yonder. I very much want to make the most of this trip. Budget is .....well, not unlimited but I have a decent amount of funds set aside for this.
Are there any other "must see" events, festivals, places, etc happening this summer or that happen annually and you can recommend, in or around the locations I am committed to? Northern Europe and UK/Ireland preferred but further south is doable. I have done the touristy stuff in much of Italy, France, Ireland, Netherlands in the past. I am in my early 30s, female, sports fan, music buff and wildlife lover but have pretty broad interests.
