Knowth and Newgrange

An eye opener! This is the only thing that came up to my mind after this visit. Even worse, this question: Human being knew a complex form of communication,  had an advanced knowledge of stars, calendar and meaning of life. Something happened between. 5200 years later we all end up with a rectangular piece of plastic […]

Mizen Head: the west of the west

One of the most extreme west end of Ireland, the peninsula would be very exposed to maritime elements. I paid the entrance for you (I know…) and let you appreciate the view. I personally found it over built and worse was to start a massive block of concrete and leaving it unfinished. Worse, it’s seem […]

Midleton is not only a good Whiskey

…. but let’s be honest, its famous for this. If you identify yourself as a fan of Jameson (yessss there are some) then come to this place and you will discover how all bottles of this brand sold on this planet are made. You will also learn what better brand you should also focus on… […]

Kinsale 2017

Some souvenirs from this colourful place on the south coast of County Cork.

Dublin and around

Did I ever mentioned that I am always happy to walk around this capital? I will leave here 21 pictures of my last trips there.

Cork’ street life

We often here about the good vibes of Cork. This city was the European capital of culture in 2005 and had since made all efforts to keep the good side of it. Not only you can have a good time every day and nights but we also have the whole city center involved when bigger […]

The house of Father Ted

As a fan of the TV show, it is difficult to drive in county Clare and miss this famous house. If you have more time I also suggest to spare some time in Kilfenora. Between the Vaughan’s Pub and the lovely people from the surrounding accommodation, this will definitely be a good refreshing time.

Seasons greetings from Cork

Busy between the school Choirs and gifts hunting, I can now wish you: Bonne Fete Caf Happy pub crawling Happy Christmas, and so on … May the end of the year be enjoyable And please spare a tree: be more creative than this 🙂

The Beara Peninsula

The the west of county Cork, the Beara Peninsula will charm you with its view, people and quiet surroundings. I can just remember how relax I was by just thinking about it.

Amsterdam, culture and snow

For a couple of hour or a couple of days, this city is definitely worse the visit. A train takes 15 min from the airport and leave nearly every 5 min.

The Samson crane barge at Ardmore in the County of Waterford

In 1987, off the coast of Waterford, pushed by the Gael, a massive crane barge from Liverpool crashed along the cliffs. Dangerous pollutants were removed soon after the barge went aground and the 2 men aboard were rescued so naturally, instead of removing the remains, why wouldn’t we make history? I suppose we have more to follow […]

In this charming Haut-Rhin

Childhood or not, Alsace is one of the best compromise in Europe, Celte, Germanic, French and most of central in Europe. Alsace is rich in history.

Plants of Brittany

Can I invite you to crawl down a bit an see what we are usually stepping on when travelling in Brittany. I should do more of these, they are little treasures.

Costal views from Brittany

It’s like a postcard from these sunny places with untouched beaches and surrounding. It’s because it is sometimes too cold … 🙂

… and a night in Lyon

Lucky enough to walk in Lyon the nigh before the Light festival, may I share here what you can expect (without fighting the crowd)

Lyon, a day …

Lyon in France would be like Cork in Ireland: a second capital … right …. Spending the day there is a very good idea. The city is walkable but massive as well. There will be more to follow soon 🙂

Koln, when the night comes

Koln (Cologne) made me laugh last time time I went there. Imagine a whole day of transports to reach the destination and the first place you see is a pub called the Corkonian. Anyway, if you have more time, the Cathedral is beautiful, the old town as well and carnival is a must do here!
