📍County Clare, Ireland
A lonely stone cottage with a great view of the wild Atlantic Ocean that so often batters Ireland's west coast. Once you visit, it doesn't take too much of an imagination to work out where the Wild Atlantic Way takes its name from .
Even in the height of summer, the weather can be fairly unpredictable around these parts so it's best to come prepared. A great example of that is the boat tours that depart from Doolin Pier for the base of the Cliffs of Moher. It's something that we often suggest for visitors as an alternative to the standard view from atop the cliffs. It's a great experience but it's worth keeping in mind that the conditions at the beginning of the 1 hour trip can sometimes be different to those at the end of the trip - something that a few of our guests may have experienced once or twice over the past few years. If nothing else, it tends to be a good reminder to keep a couple of layers in easy reach if you're venturing out along the Wild Atlantic Way

I overheard a bunch of middle schoolers talking about where they’ll be at age 25 earlier this year, and let me just tell you...⠀
It WASN’T AT ALL where I am today. But also, it’s sooo not where I want to be.⠀
The cool thing about people is that we are all so different, and we all want different things. My “dream” & vision is so dang clear: I want a life where I can choose my schedule, make full-time income on part-time hours, travel (Ireland pictured above), & pour into women daily. ⠀
My vision is SO DANG CLEAR because I have seen it happen for so many and I’m ready to work to make it happen for myself. Is your vision clear?⠀
I am running a coaching mentorship starting Monday & I would LOVE to have you join me & make your vision a reality too, whatever it may be! Drop a 🥳 below if you’re ready!⠀
The moment I stepped inside Sean’s Bar this past March, I immediately loved it. It’s the oldest pub in Ireland...so much history and the people were so welcoming. This video also shows the Viking Cruise that our Castles, Whiskey and Pints Tour will be taking before we visit Sean’s Bar. Message me if you’re interested in your own pub tour through Ireland in 2021.
Rarely use black and white, but I made a exception at Carrickfergus Castle.
Standing on a rocky spur on the northern shore of Belfast Lough, Carrickfergus Castle dominates all approaches to the town. John de Courcy, the Anglo-Norman baron who conquered much of Ulster, started building it about 1178 and it remained fully garrisoned for 750 years until 1928.
It is local joke about how convenient it was to build a castle so close to a car park and some great restaurants, the castle was originally nearly completely surrounded by the sea. Strategically, it was a vital stronghold, commanding views across the lough and from land approaches.

I've always loved travelling in Ireland and seeing different places, when restrictions are lifted hopefully we'll see a lot more people holidaying in Ireland and helping to support our own tourism industry and jobs, which have been massively effected by Covid 19.
After much hard work behind the scenes and deliberation with the the relevant bodies including Ireland's Association for Adventure Tourism and Failte Ireland we are now ready for a slow and phased reopening starting this June Bank Holiday Weekend! 🌞🌊🌞 We look forward to gradually seeing you all again over the summer months 😍
