An Irish Road Trip with Trivago – The Ring Of Kerry

By |August 6th, 2015|

Last October I undertook once of the finest road trips in my 31 year history.

Spending a day driving around the Dingle Peninsula was seriously something special! I only wish it had lasted a little longer.

Such is the beauty of Dingle, and the popularity of the popularity of driving it’s peninsula, that my blog post about my […]

The Slea Head Drive, Dingle, Co Kerry [VIDEO]

By |March 10th, 2015|

The Slea Head Drive is a marvel.  As someone who loves a roadtrip, it was a tough choice between the Ring of Kerry and the Slea Head Drive when over in Ireland at the back end of last year, but owing to the season and a chance to stay over in Dingle, the Slea Head Drive […]

Walking the roof of Croke Park on the Etihad Skyline

By |December 10th, 2014|

Owing to my love of sports, especially what I would call football, I’ve seen and been inside my fair share of stadia around the world.

From stadium tours to attending games themselves, ‘collecting’ new stadiums has been a hobby of mine for quite some time, and on a recent visit to Ireland I was more than […]

10 reasons why you should road trip the Dingle Peninsula

By |November 18th, 2014|

Ah Dingle, what a beautiful place, and so close to London in reality.  Just a mere hour (ish) flight from the big smoke and its like being in a different world.  Gone are the high rise grey structures we call office buildings.  Gone is the thick and dusty smog air, and the everyday rush and […]

Dublin in 48 hours #LoveDublin

By |November 12th, 2014|

Having used up all my annual leave for 2014 by the end of September, it seemed likely that a visit to Dublin would evade me for yet another year.  Having visited Ireland six times within the last 5 years, but with not one of those visits involving Dublin, you’d be forgiven for thinking I was avoiding the […]

Somewhat last minute, but I am off to Dublin for the very first time weekend, awesome!.

In fact by the time you read this I shall either be on the plane, or already touched down in terminal 1 at Dublin international.  From there its a whirlwind Saturday and Sunday of adventure, with the goal of achieving […]

Incredible views over Dingle from the Conor Pass

By |September 30th, 2014|

The lanes are narrow and allow little room for error.  As we drive higher and higher into the pass, where once there were fields to our left, now only jagged mountain sides fill the passenger window.

‘Slow down a bit’ says the gf sitting next to me, its far from the worst piece of advice she […]

The view from the historic Derry city walls

By |September 3rd, 2013|

Derry or Londonderry?  Which ever name you choose to use, this city on the northern coast of Northern Ireland is an incredible place to visit due  to its historical significance, heritage and friendly folk.

Derry is the only city in Ireland that remains completely walled.  Built between 1613 and 1618 by The Honourable The Irish Society , […]

Slieve League, Donegal – The highest sea cliffs in Europe

By |January 7th, 2013|

Slieve league hosts the highest sea cliffs in Europe.  Whilst the Cliffs of Moher further south in Country Clare take much of the cliff admiration afforded my visitors to Ireland, Slieve League in County Donegal located on the Atlantic stand almost 3x higher, at roughly 1972ft … pretty tall!

It was only by luck that I […]
