Slievenamon Tipperary Ireland Ireland's Ancient eASTMy aim with this website is to showcase what I believe are the very best bits of our beautiful little island – our food & great outdoors.


In Seasonal Recipes, you’ll find some of my favourite dishes that reflect our seasons. And in Great Outdoors, I write about favourite parts of the country that make me especially happy & proud that Ireland is my home!


I hope that you will find this to be a quality resource when looking to eat and explore your way around Ireland.

P.S.As restrictions ease, I am looking forward to completing the MacGiollapadraig walk. South Laois Tourism have a tradition that on Easter Monday, you can walk in-company from Durrow to Gathabawn and on the Monday of the October Bank Holiday weekend, they do the walk from Gathabawn back to Durrow. I’ll be walking from Durrow to Gathabawn, ensuring to phone Mackeys as we near the end to put our order in for their pizzas!


This is one of my favourite inland walks in the country, you can read more here:
