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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Hopefully by now you’re aware of G+ stories, and maybe even using them? Well I hope so because I love them and bring you another today which this time showcases the 48 hours I spent in Dublin only last weekend.
The trip was an absolute whirlwind, Heathrow to Dublin and back again all within one weekend. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
Silver Strand Beach, Donegal was one of the highlights of a roadtrip around Ireland in April of last year. In making a slight error when booking our hostel for Donegal, I actually stumbled upon what may be one of my favourite beaches in the world.
My Hostel Mistake
You see I though the hostel I booked would […]
