Lisdoonvarna, Co.Clare: OOOOOHHH LISDOOONVARNA! My best friend Ciara and I decided to go to the matchmaking festival in Lisdoonvarna county Clare and it was an experience for sure haha. Every year in September a festival takes place in the small town of Lisdoonvarna. The pubs are packed at weekends with live music and dancing. There is also musicians that preform in the town that you can buy tickets to and there is a nightclub there too. I have so many good memories from here my favourite has to be doing some traditional Irish dancing with a man who was easily in his 70’s in the middle of a pub. Great craic was had.
Father Teds House, Co.Clare: I actually drove here as a little detour stop off on the way to Lisdoonvarna but it was cool to see. For all my fellow Father Ted fans I’d highly recommend it if you’re around Clare, although it can be difficult to find. The people who own the house actually provide afternoon tea but by booking only if you’d like to go inside.
Cobh, Co.Cork: Cobh is the cutest little fishing town in Cork. Theres also a Titanic Memorial which of course I visited as I am OBSESSED with everything to do with The Titanic.
Fota Wildlife Park Co.Cork: Fancy a day out at the zoo? Go here. Prepare to do a fair bit of walking though as it is all outdoors and to see the animals you have to walk to each station…like you do in most zoo’s.
Killarney, Co.Kerry: All around a fab town. I went here for New Years Eve with a group of friends and the craic was had. Killarney is so lovely and everything you need is within walking distance of the town centre. I only have one picture that is my own and thats because I was mainly there for the sesh not the sights, apologies.
Dingle, Co.Kerry: Dingle will always have a special place in my heart. The first ‘adult’ trip away I ever went on fully funded by myself and planned by myself and my best friend was to Dingle. I could live off of the sea salt ice cream you can get at Murphy’s ice cream parlour. You can’t go on a trip to Dingle and not see Fungi the dolphin. On the dolphin boat tour not only do you see Fungi but the views from the boat are stunning and well worth the few euro to go out and see. We stayed in a hostel for the night which was also above a pub, so we didn’t travel far for pre-drinks. I vaguely remember someone telling me there is something like 38 pubs in Dingle. If anyone knows how many there are do tell me I’d love to know! I do remember visiting a lot of pubs haha. I would 100% go back to Dingle I absolutely loved it we met such nice people and had a great time.
