Time to think about some great R&R: travels in Ireland – 1

As soon as ‘Early Bird’ emails from the likes of Theatre by the Lake and the Hay Festival ping into my inbox it is time to begin planning for this year’s leisure activities.

With this in mind I’d like to share some of the wonderful places we’ve visited in the past few years just to whet the travel-buds. And perhaps give a few ideas for ventures new.
And with Travels in Ireland I shall begin …

I cannot deny it, I enjoy planning and organising and to this end I draw maps and sketch out itinerary ideas. For our trip to Ireland I made maps to aid planning and timing for the places we’d decided we’d like to see.

Arrival at Dublin ferry port went without a hitch – although as we were towing our caravan perhaps that’s not the best expression to use! We headed off to our first stop in Tipperary, a fantastic caravan site in Glen of Aherlow. With that as a base we were able visit County Wexford, Rock of Cashel, and the City of Cork, home of my Cronin ancestors.

Tipperary was a great base for exploring the South East corner of the Republic and certainly one we would revisit for further travels in the area. The owner, George Drew, was fantastic and rode his bicycle around the grounds each day checking the site and ensuring that all was running smoothly.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my first offering of photos taken in the wonderful South and South East of Ireland. If you have, please like, share, and comment. If you have further suggestions for must-see places, ones that may be off the beaten track, please let me know. We shall be returning.
Thank you for reading, and Happy 2020 Travels.
