Things To Do In Dublin

It is the gateway to Ireland for many looking to make the trip to the Emerald Isle. Whether it’s the starting point for a bigger road trip around the country or a weekend break I hope the following things to do in Dublin (Baile Átha Cliath) can help you to explore the city and most of all enjoy it as much as I have. The below of course isn’t a […]


Ladies View – Ring Of Kerry

The Ladies View lookout is part of the Ring of Kerry and can be found between Killarney and Kenmare on the N71. On a nice day its a great stop off spot to take in the view and just enjoy how damn beautiful Ireland is. I will say however getting to the ladies view lookout is somewhat of an experience with tour buses also using this narrow stretch of road. […]


Things To Do In Clare

County Clare is home to one of the most visited attractions in Ireland, being the Cliffs of Moher. But it’s not just the cliffs that are worth your time in this mid west region of the country. There is a raft of things to do in Clare that you can include into a full day’s outing or overnight stop off on your way south to the Dingle Peninsula or Ring […]


Leamaneh Castle

Leamaneh Castle is hidden away in a region of county Clare in Ireland known as the Burren. I’d have never even driven past it had I not got a tip from the owner of a local bakery in Ennistymon. Located on the very scenic R476 that winds its way across the Burren its a worthwhile drive even if the castle above doesn’t interest you.


Things To Do In Sligo

Planning a road trip around Ireland? Then maybe you should consider some of these things to do in Sligo that I found worth my time as you drive around the country. Sligo county is known as one of the top destinations in the country for adventure holidays, especially if you are talking about surfing. But it’s not just about the wild waves that lavish its coastline, there is much more […]


Strandhill Beach

Strandhill Beach is located approximately 11 kilometers from the town of Sligo and offers amazing views and surfing options for those brave enough enter the water. If you prefer to just take in the view then Shells Cafe directly opposite is a must in my opinion. Having sampled their scones and jam I can say even if you don’t like beaches this little cafe is worth the trip.
