Highlights of our recent weekends visit to Kilkenny to celebrate the birthday of the wonderful @beacso. If you’re planning a visit to Kilkenny @mountjulietestate is a great option. The restaurants are top notch with a Michelin star head chef, and the golf course has hosted recent Irish Opens. It looked wonderful all decorated for Christmas too. No trip to Kilkenny is compete without a walk of its medieval streets, and a visit to Irelands most spectacular castle. Tours are now self guided, so you can enjoy it at your own pace. Kilkenny never disappoints!

One of my faves from 2022. This little crumbling shed is found on the wind and rain battered Mizen Head in Cork. Proof that beauty can exist in any conditions.

A few weekends ago we went to Center Parcs Longford Forest. I must admit the place is great. However is it wrong that I was more excited by the stunning forest that it is set in. I’ve never seen so many fly agaric mushrooms in all my life. There’s a certain level of magic in that forest. How appropriate!

Celebrating 5 years married to the amazing @beacso today. We are in Porto for a long weekend. Dinner tonight was at the very special @cumplice_steakhouse. To many more years together. 🥂

Sharing a fantastic street art find from Drogheda and Drawda for this #muralmonday. It’s by @creaero and depicts Amergin from Irish mythology. I’ve honestly never heard of him but by all accounts he was a bard and Druid. Certainly a character that makes a great subject for a mural.

The daisy fields on the Donabate Portrane Cliff Walk in Dublin are one of Dublin’s best kept summer secrets. How wonderful are they? It’s a short walk from the car park at Portrane beach to appreciate this wild beauty. You’ve got the added bonus of Dublins stunning coastline too. • • • #dublin #landscapecaptures #landscapelovers #discoverireland #ireland #insta_ireland #loveireland #visit_ireland #irishexplorer #keepdiscovering #dejavuireland #irelanddaily #irishcentral #icu_ireland #thefullirish #instant_ireland #lovedublin #topdublinphoto #irelandsancienteast #portrane #donabate #cliffwalk #donabateportranecliffwalk #daisies #donabatecliffwalk #portranecliffwalk #portranecliffs #igersdublin #carpediem_dublin

There’s a member of the CarpeDiemEire team that doesn’t get much credit on here. Here she is on a very Irish summers day. Without her, we wouldn’t have as many road trips. Actuality this is the first time I’ve ever splashed out on a new car. We will appreciate that extra luxury on our road trip to west Cork in a few weeks.

A true hidden pleasure of visiting Italy is walking its back streets. Of course it’s a finer experience in the countries older towns and cities. One such city is Orvieto. It’s a cliche, but there literally is something beautiful around every single corner. Have you visited Orvieto in Italy’s Umbria region?

This is the magical hilltop town of Civita di Bagnoregio in Lazio, Italy. It’s unusual in that it’s probably best appreciated from afar rather than walking it’s streets. So that’s what we did. There is an cover charge of €5 to take the door bridge up to the town. Honestly we didn’t bother having been advised not to. Instead we appreciated this view, enjoyed a cappuccino, and went back on our way. It is said that the town is endangered and that at some stage rockfalls will have a significant toll on it. Let’s hope all are safe if it happens.
