To read about different places and things to do in Ireland – Click here

Writing and travel are two of my greatest loves, so to be able to do both is a dream. Writing the Time Out Guide to Ireland was a wonderful experience and it inspired me to set up this travel blog. I spent seven months travelling the country, meeting new people and essentially discovering Ireland.

I know it sounds cliche, but I realised why people around the world rave about Ireland. Rugged coastlines, deserted beaches, mountains, lakes, culture, art, history and some of the loveliest people I’ve met in all my travels. I discovered that the Irish have a real sense of pride about where they are from and their enthusiasm and passion inspired me.

I hope, by writing about Ireland, that I’ll inspire others to explore the island and realise its true beauty.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. You definitely need more than a week here! Several years of trips to be had in Ireland!

      Absolutely, I’ve been going around non-stop for 3 years and still there’s places I’ve not made it too!

    Julianne. . Could you please advise… We are looking for a nice holiday home in Ireland for 4 adults and 5 children. The dates we are looking for are approx 26th July to approx 1st August. I would like somewhere with a good standard as I don’t go away much with me family.

    Kind Regards

      Hi Catriona

      Have you looked into Natural Retreats properties? They are lovely and on great resorts so you get to use hotel facilities. Castle martyr in Cork is great – houses are spacious and lots to do and see in the area. Also FOTA Resort is v popular with families and could work really well. Check out the natural retreats website and FOTA and see would either work. I think they would work very well for your group. You could get 2 houses beside each other! Hope this helps.
