Along the Wild Atlantic Way Colourful Kinsale in County Cork....

This week we explored counties Cork and Kerry along the Wild Atlantic Way. Our first stop was Kinsale in County Cork, it is a really vibrant colourful town with lots of pretty shops and restaurants. I loved the varied colour palette used on all of the buildings and the traditional shop fronts. Here are just a few photos I took. We didn't stay the night here but spent a few hours exploring the town. Watch out for more posts from my travels.

Picture Perfect Carlingford County Louth

This Summer I'm exploring more of Ireland with lots of day trips away. We have no holidays booked for abroad so I'm making the most of what we have to offer here in Ireland. One place I visited in the past few weeks was Carlingford in County Louth, it is such a pretty little town with a great buzz and lots to see and do. So if you are exploring Ireland's Ancient East, do stop off in Carlingford...

A Hidden Gem in Ireland's Ancient East

This weekend was a bank holiday here in Ireland and I took an extra two days off work. I visited County Louth on Friday and came across the quaint port of Greenore. It is very small but pretty all the same. There is a tiny village with brick houses which were built for the railway workers and the port workers years ago. There are also some arts and craft design homes which were originally built for railway drivers, they are so beautiful and very unique for Ireland. We spent a short time in Greenore as we didn't have much time and we wanted to visit Carlingford as well. I really loved this wee place and would love to return again.
