Achill Island

Achill Island, or Paradise as I like to call it, it off the coast of Mayo in the west of Ireland. It’s one of my favourite places in the country because of it’s beautiful, unspoilt beaches, which you can see in my header picture!

When the sun is shining, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were on an island far, far away and not in Ireland!


Slievemore, Achill Island.


Feeling the Chill

So, apparently we got some of the polar air that has been spreading across Europe this week….. I say apparently because the coldest it got here was 1 degree and we had a tiny flurry of snow. I’m actually happy about it because I hate driving in snow and ice.

Eventhough we didn’t get any snow, I’m definitely dreaming of sunnier and warmer places.

A Day in the Park

Ballincollig Regional Park is close by me and it’s a great place to go for a walk or run (they have a Park Run there every Saturday). It also has loads of space and play parks for kids, as well as picnic areas and food trucks.



You can also walk a little way across the river, which freaks me out, but I do it every time anyway 😉 The photos are worth the uncomfortable feeling.

Have a lovely weekend!
