Touring Ireland's Luxury South
Ireland’s beautiful South – is this just another blog about the breath-taking Ring of Kerry, pretty Dingle Peninsula or the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher? Yes and No! While these places are certainly beautiful and definitely worth a visit to, there are other places you should include on your tour of Ireland! I had a look at our Luxury Southern Tours of Ireland and found a few places I particularly liked when I visited this part of the Emerald Isle and would recommend that you include into itinerary when thinking of your Irish tour!
Free things to do in Dublin!
I think that I can include everyone in when I write that we all love getting or doing something for free? Right?! Well they do say that the best things in life are free after all and with this in mind I decided to compile a list of some of the things that my home town of Dublin can offer for the princely sum of nothing! Not just aimlessly walking the streets, but actively doing something, going somewhere for fun and entertainment and even perhaps learning something new!
Hellfire Club with Hidden Dublin Walks and Tours
On a beautiful summer’s evening my sister and I decided to view the darker side of Dublin’s history with a trip to the Hellfire Club in the Dublin Mountain’s with Hidden Dublin Walks and Tours. Their experienced, knowledgeable and entertaining story-tellers, guide people to some of the spookiest spots in and around Ireland’s capital and share some of the city’s trysts with ghosts, demons and murderous villains. All the tours deliver a unique perspective on Dublin’s history and folklore in a frightening fashion!
A tale of two cities…. Cork and Dublin
As anyone in Ireland will tell you, there is fierce rivalry between Dublin and Cork. People in Cork, Corkonians consider themselves to be the “real” capital of Ireland and not Dublin. People in Dublin slag (mock) the accent of the people in Cork. If you haven’t heard it yet, it’s quite a sing songy accent and even requires concentration from me to understand it clearly at times! It is a beautiful city and undeniably has some of the best food in Ireland so I concede that it justifiably has a great reputation for food. As to whether or not it’s the real capital of Ireland…that’s another discussion! So with some friends I recently took an overnight trip to the food capital of Ireland!
Ideas for your Honeymoon in Ireland – off the beaten track
Ireland has a lot to offer any traveller to her gorgeous green shores especially those who wish to honeymoon in Ireland from her blues and emeralds dancing with the ever changing light and shadows of cloudy skies, and the landscape - a heady mix of barren beauty and rich lolling fields and valleys. The countryside is dotted with whispers of the past, every corner seemingly revealing an artefact or story, memory or ghost – where you walk in the footsteps of writers and poets, hear the strains of haunting Celtic beats and feel the magic and mysticism of her scared spots where legends of fairies and warriors still linger.
