We went for a stroll around Parma to get a feel for this typical Italian town. It’s very pretty, about 1.5 hours drive from Bergamo airport (Milan) and we spent a fabulous few hours there just soaking up the atmosphere and dining al fresco in the heat of the sun. We ate Parma ham at Le […]

It’s not every day a family member is in the World Cup. As most of you know my giant baby brother Conán plays for the Irish U20s rugby team. They bet Argentina and Scotland in their first two games and we flew over to see them take on New Zealand in their final game at […]

Villa Rose Hotel & V-Spa Donegal | Review

I recently spent a week at the Villa Rose Hotel in Ballybofey, Co. Donegal. Upon arrival, the lobby is huge, beautifully lit and spacious. I arrived on a Sunday night where the Rose of Donegal Selection was taking place. It brought back memories to a few years ago when a couple of friends and I took part in the […]

Donegal Thatched Cottages | Cruit Island

Do you ever feel like you’re drowning in all the work and projects you take on, that there aren’t enough hours in your day… no matter how late you stay up? I’d been feeling like that the past month. My ‘To do’ lists kept getting longer and new projects were coming from all directions. I’m […]
