Monart Wexford Destination Spa

Everyone loves a good, relaxing weekend – and my last weekend was just that. I had the pleasure of spending one night in Monart, a ‘destination spa’ down in Wexford.

Botanic Gardens & Glasnevin Cemetery

Something I have been meaning to do since I moved to Dublin was go to the National Botanic Garden and visit Glasnevin Cemetry.

If you had ever asked me about recommendations for Clare before I would have been very quick to say The Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Liscannor, etc. The last time I had explored anywhere else in Clare was with my parents years ago and having finally gone there last weekend I’m really sad that it didn’t…Continue Reading “Discovering County Clare”

Lusty Beg Island

Recently I ticked an activity off my ever growing to-do list and walked the Cuilcagh Legnabrocky Trail in Fermanagh, also known as the Stairway to Heaven. What was meant to be a day trip to do this mountain walk ended up becoming a night away – and little did I know that I was going…Continue Reading “Staying On Lusty Beg Island”
