best things


We may moan a lot about the weather, and the government, and the roads – ok, we moan about everything, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love our little island! Here are ten reasons why:

The people
It doesn’t matter where you are, if the people aren’t nice, you’re not going to have a great time. Luckily for us, Irish people are the best! Dublin was even voted as one of the friendliest cities in the world – now THAT’S something to be proud of!

The weather
Sure, we moan about it when it rains. But that doesn’t mean we don’t secretly love being forced to stay indoors and watch Netflix all day. We’re also big fans of boots and cardigans – two things we could never wear if we lived somewhere hot!

The humour
Ever been on holidays and thought, “This place may be pretty, but it just isn’t as much craic as home”? That’s because no country has the same humour as Ireland, we are crusaders of the craic industry.

Breakfast rolls
Did you know you can’t get breakfast rolls in England? They have no idea what they’re missing out on! Same goes for chicken fillet rolls – we just couldn’t live without them!

The phrases
Those little words and phrases just make life more fun, don’t they? We wouldn’t want to live in a world where we couldn’t say we did something ‘arseways’. Sure that’d be no craic.

The lack of deadly insects
Normal spiders cause us enough stress – if they could actually hurt us aswell? We just wouldn’t be able to cope.

The lads
They may have been voted as the ugliest men in the world or some such nonsense, but we love our Irish lads. We wouldn’t change them for anything! (Except maybe making them a bit more romantic, or stylish, or…)

The word ‘grand’
It’s such a good word for when something is a bit better than ok but not as good as fantastic. Sure you’re grand. It’s grand. That’s grand. It’ll be grand. We love it.

Our terrible Eurovision entries
They always give us a good laugh every year!

The scenery
Ireland is really pretty – even though it rains all the time. You can keep you plane ticket to Australia, thanks!




Thought cruises were just for old people? Well, it’s time to think again! Here are our six best reasons why we are considering a cruise for our next holiday!

You only have to unpack once
Seriously, unpacking and repacking has got to be the most annoy thing about travelling.

You will always have a view of the sea
People on land pay top dollar for this

The amount of places you’ll see
You will experience more cities in a week then you would travelling around by plane.

You don’t have to worry about carrying around a load of money – most things, including food,  are paid for before you even get on the ship.

Meet other people
We admit this can be done on any holiday, but this way you won’t lose them as they move on to other places – you’re all stuck together until you go to land.

Comfy bed
The best thing about a cruise is the fact that while you are travelling you have a comfy bed to lie down on – you won’t get this on an aeroplane!

The activities
Depending on which cruise you pick, there can be so many activities on board that you won’t have to leave.


Listen to what these guy think are the best, and worst, parts about being a woman.

We’re pretty sure they’d change their minds if they had to walk in our shoes for just one day!



There is something quite amazing about packing your bag, setting up camp for the next two or three weeks in one place and yet still manage to visit a ton of destinations.

Here are 10 reasons why campervans are the best way to travel:

  1. All you need is a map and an open road.
  2. There are tons of campsites in every country where you can set up for the night and they are pretty cheap.
  3. You can change your mind at the last minute knowing you have a bed to sleep in that night.
  4. You can have a nap whenever you want.
  5. No need for restaurants, you have a kitchen travelling with you.
  6. You can visit as many places as you want without having to pack and unpack your bag all the time.
  7. You will meet more locals.
  8. You will be able to see the world very differently when sleeping in the back of a van compared to a hotel room.
  9. You will be able to wake up and enjoy your breakfast just as the sun rises.
  10. You don’t even need to get out of bed to see the sun rise.
