We could not pass up an opportunity to take this beautiful horses out for a spin. The Connemara Ponies are famous Irish horses that for many years ran wild on the green hills of Ireland. With a strong back and short muscular legs, it’s perfectly suited to the craggy an...

Ok, once in a while you get a craving for a juicy burger. Now some would tell you that it's not really you craving that beefy patty with cheese, but the bacteria living inside your gut. Either way, whether or not it is truly me or not, The Burgatory is the place to go...

The Cliffs of Moher. 

As it happens the day we made the trek up to see the cliffs, the clouds fell over the land and visibility was limited to about 50 ft. So images like you see here in this video were impossible. And yet it is still worth the trip up to this area. The...

The ancient ruins of a Ringfort, known as a Caher Mór or "Ballyallaban stone fort" was one of our stops on the way up to the Cliffs of Moher.

Cork, the foodie capital of Ireland.

Ok, one of the most challenging things about travelling is refraining from eating the sumptuous foods that you know will slow down the digestive process. But really they have some amazing cheeses and fresh breads here!  And the Engl...

Dublin. We visited this bustling city three years ago and on this occasion we were only staying two days, as the rest of the Emerald Isle was calling us. We checked into a little Airbnb room for the two nights and did the standard touristy walkabout. 

Ireland is pa...

As we travel, I always make it a habit to scope out where we can pick up local food items, organic produce, homemade breads that don't contain things like E471, E481 Calcium propionate ( a mould inhibitor) or emulsifiers. It is even more...

Tracey and her Dad, Maurice, took the morning to fire up the forge. Its a marvellous thing to watch. As the old saying goes, "By hammer and hand, all art still stands."

How much of what we do today will be remembered tomorrow, or a century from now? I know that our care...
