Now one of my favourite things to do when I’ve visited Dublin in the past, has been to get myself sat down in a pub or restaurant, and sample the delicious food and drink when the city has to offer. This idea also extends to the cities breweries, and to its fledgling music scene. I do […]
You know a trip has been good when you simply cannot stop writing about it!
First off I outlined 15 stunning reasons to road trip The Ring Of Kerry, and then I detailed exactly how much a road trip around The Ring of Kerry might cost you.
Well now, FINALLY, I’ve gotten around to pulling all my […]
To put it bluntly, I really liked Kilkenny!
It may be the smallest city in Ireland, but for a time during the 17th century Kilkenny was unofficially the capital of Ireland. Within its walls (or what is still standing of said walls), you’ll find an incredible blend of colour, food, sport and history … especially history!
“Ah sure, we’ll be back next year, I can show ye around Limerick then, not a bother”
The girlfriend – 2010,2011,2012, 2013 and 2014
Every time she says ‘next year’, but it just never quite seems to happen. Ever since I starting dating my better half and having heard her stories of living and working in Ireland, I’ve […]
A fortnight ago I gave you 15 stunning reasons to road trip the Ring of Kerry , but I never actually told you how much it cost. Being a budget travel blog, the cost is a pretty key detail, and so here it is.
Now this is not the first epic Irish road trip that I’ve […]
We’re a bit spoilt for choice when it comes to incredible roads in Ireland. I include both Northern Ireland and the Republic in that statement.
From Belfast, the road that follows the coastline around to Derry via the Giants Causeway is a dream to drive, but equally within the Republic there are two very famous Peninsula ring roads […]
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 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 […]
