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. I am going “forest bathing” on The Country Road, on Community Radio Kilkenny City this week. I will be talking to Pat Tracey about the peacefulness of Ballyrafton Woods, near Dunmore in Co. Kilkenny.


If you are thinking of visiting Ballyrafton, you can learn more here:
