Things To Do Chapter 5


From a romantic day in the spa and experiencing Irish culture to escaping on a scenic drive or enjoying the electric nightlife.

This guide removes the stress of planning the perfect itinerary. When you read this – you two will be honeymoon and tourism gurus!

When you are here, there are sights to be seen, experiences to be had, tours to join & things to be done! This chapter covers exactly that.

There is more to Ireland than getting drunk and singing old ballads, thanks to the landscape and rich culture, Ireland has got almost every activity imaginable. Excellent driving roads, walkways & hiking, kayaking, surfing, equestrian, Irish dancing, the list goes on…

Whether you are interested in culture, sightseeing, exploring, spas, castles or alternative honeymoon activities, it is all here.

There is still lots of juicy knowledge to take away from the next couple of chapters.

My friend, Stephanie, honeymooned in Ireland and since then she has had a number of visits. She said…

“A great idea for honeymooners is to get outside in nature–climb an Irish mountain, kayak on the sea or even try horseback riding on the beach. These extra special excursions require a little advance planning, but they maybe the most memorable of your trip.”
– Stephanie Chastain,

Whether you want to go horseback riding, hang-gliding, kayaking or what ever floats your boat. There is no single location for these kinds of activities, they are scattered around the coastlines and midlands

Or if you want a more romantic activity…

You may want to visit St Valentine in White friars Church in Dublin. The romantic shrine contains an original relic of Saint of Love brought from Rome in 1835. This is the best place to pray for a happy marriage.

Lisdoonvarna’s Spa Wells Co. Clare

Lisdoonvarna’s Spa Wells in Co. Clare are famous for their mineral rich therapeutic waters. Hundreds of years ago it was the location to visit if you were seeking a partner during October, and now the Victorian pumphouse and spa wells have become a couples spa excursion.

Ross Castle

Old myths claim Ross Castle remains home to the daughter of the Black Baron of Ross Castle – a woman who perished in the name of love, remains there haunting the land. Regardless of this – it is a beautiful castle, I talk about Irish castles soon…

If you are going to south-east Ireland, a trip to Co. Wicklow & the Cliff House Hotel for lunch would be a timeless classic to tell your family and friends because you cannot have a more romantic meal…in a restaurant. This hotel has a setting like a romantic scene in a ‘James Bond’ movie!

I’ll tell you about the rates for rooms in this hotel in Chapter 4…

Whether you plan on travelling around the Island, you’ll need to travel to your hotel. This journey is a great way to begin your escape! But it does not have to be the last adventure you take…

About Ed

My name is Ed short for Edgar. Mixed blood of Latvian and Ireland
I have lived in Mullingar town for most of my life. Traveling around the country is my favorite pass time activity, I have been to many places, and love to explore all the nooks & crannies of Ireland. The beauty of Ireland's landscape is unbelievable sometimes you feel like in a different country. From the serenity of the walk at Glendalough to the humbling feeling of being beside Cliffs of Moher is truly amazing to experience.
When I travel throughout Ireland the hospitality is the one thing that stood out most! Cork is my personal favourite as the people are so nice and welcoming my highlight was the Titanic experience where you feel like one of the passengers who are about to board the ship from the heartbreak pier that still stands to this day.
In Ireland you will always get the warmest welcome in any B&B. My other hobbies are cooking horse riding and fishing. I can’t wait to share the experiences with you for your Trip of a lifetime to this amazing Green Isle.
Sláinte (Cheers)

About Donna

Hey, my name is Donna and I'm from the town of Mullingar in the Heart of Ireland.

One of my passions is exploring and from my experience, Ireland is a beautiful country to explore. I have so many recommendations but for newcomers to Ireland I definitely opt to send you to Westport for Croagh Patrick & Clew Bay, perfect for hiking scenery and beautiful seafood, 

My favorite place in Ireland is Galway City - I love going for a meal with my friends, followed by a stroll down the cobbled streets, before popping into one of the Traditional Irish Pubs like  An Púcan.

About Rita

Hi, I’m Rita and I am living in Kilkenny, the Marble city.

Born in Portugal, I fell in love with Ireland from the moment I landed here. I intended to stay for 6 months, and 6 years after I just cannot imagine my life without the Irish ‘craic’. 

Working in Events & Tourism for the last years has been so rewarding - bringing people to see all the magical, undiscovered spots in this country is what I wake up for every day. I have made memories that will last a lifetime, and I work towards creating the same experiences for others visiting the Emerald island. 

My favourite place in Ireland is probably the Dingle Peninsula, where bumpy roads bring the Atlantic ocean and green mountains together. The seafood is just as brilliant as the landscape, which I couldn’t forget to mention, being the foodie that I am!

You could say I am biased when I pick Kilkenny as one of my other top spots - I just can’t get enough of this lively mediaeval city branded by its hospitality.

About Sinéad

Hey! My name is Sinéad. I'm from Longford, the heart of the midlands. I'm a countryside girl at heart, depsite living in the capital for a few years while studying. I love the hustle bustle of Dublin city centre, there's always so much going on and so much to do. Although, you can't beat the tranquility of the Irish countryside in my opinion!

Apart from my hometown, one of my favorite place in Ireland has got to be 'The Kingdom' (Kerry). The scenery is just unparalleled. From the idyllic wild Atlantic coasts to our selection of well-known mountain ranges, and everything in between. The ring of Kerry is definitely a must see, the nightlife is pretty great too!!

On my weekends I love to cheer on my local Gaelic football teams. I'd definitely recommend catching a GAA match on your travels!

About Jessica

Hi, my name is Jessica,

I'm from the town of Mullingar, known as the hidden heartlands of Ireland. Travel is my passion, every weekend I try to visit a few different counties here in Ireland and also explore new and exciting countries. Unfortunately there is just not enough time to visit everywhere I want too on our beautiful island of Ireland, Naturally the next best thing is to help make others dreams come true with the trip of a lifetime to our fair isle!

My two favorite places in Ireland is Galway and Kerry. They are full of great culture, food, scenery, and of course many traditional Irish pubs!! There is always a great lively buzz no matter what time of year you visit.

I look forward to working with many of you in the near future to offer my knowledge, guidance and support for your trip of a lifetime.

About Ronan


My name is Ronan and I'm from Mullingar (the heart of the Midlands). I have a passion for travelling and have been all over the world. However, my most favourite place in the world is the west of Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way. From seeing Basking sharks in Keem bay in Achill Island (Mayo), to having a lovely relaxing pint of Guinness in Salthill in Galway, to taking in the majestic Cliffs of Moher in Clare and kayaking alongside dolphins in Dingle bay (Kerry) - it's all just amazing. Oh, and not to forget the delicious Skellig chocolates while looking out at Skellig Michaeal in Kerry, yum!

I love all things sport and food - when I'm not travelling around Ireland I'm cooking up a storm in the kitchen and watching some local GAA (our national sport). I can't wait to help you out and make your trip to Ireland, the trip of a lifetime!

Céad mile fáilte mo chara - (A thousand welcomes my friend).
