Great Eats and Drinks in Killarney, Ireland!

Great Eats and Drinks in Killarney, Ireland!

Celtic Whiskey Bar and Larder

When we first arrived in Killarney we already had dinner in Kinsale so we were not looking for dinner options.  But we decided to take a quick stroll around town before heading to Ross Castle.  We stumbled upon Celtic Whiskey Bar and Larder.  We stuck our head in- they were playing Cars, had shelves full of whiskeys and was serving plates of charcuterie, it was like it was calling our names we knew we had to go back.

We went back a few days later, after a long day driving about the Dingle Peninsula this was the perfect place to sit back and relax.

This place was very chill.  Don’t let the name fool you, they also offer a large variety of gin cocktails.  And not only did they serve spirits from around the world they had a craft beer, cider and wine selection as well.  The great thing about this place was that you didn’t have to stick to trying to choose one type of whiskey.  They offered a variety of flights as well.  And even better a wide variety of price levels to fit your choosing.  The flights cost anywhere from 14 euros to 60 euros.

Having dinner in Dingle already we decided to go for a charcuterie board and a flight of whiskey.  My husband order the “Irish Favorites” flight and it was thoroughly enjoyed.  We still talk about how perfect this place was for us.  All our favorite eats and drinks!

Where to Stay in Chicago: FieldHouse Jones

Where to Stay in Chicago: FieldHouse Jones

If looking where to stay in Chicago, you should definitely check this place out.  Ringing in the dirty 30 my husband and I celebrated my 30th birthday in Chicago.  Staying at the trendy FieldHouse Jones in Chicago made it an even more perfect weekend.   Although I usually like seeing new places, it has been over 10 years since I have visited.  My last time in the Windy City was on a high school art field trip and this was my husbands first time in the city!

Where to Eat and Drink in Doolin Ireland

As we sat down to plan out our trip to Ireland we knew we wanted to get a chance to see the sight everyone thinks of in Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher.  We usually try our best to stay away, or not spend a lot of time at major tourist sights, so we were not sure how authentic of an experience we would get in Doolin.  Heading into Doolin, the closet town to the Cliffs of Moher we thought we would be staying in a large tourist trap.  But my goodness the food and drinks were sooo good.  I am not sure if this was Ireland’s version of a tourist area but we were definitely loving our meals and drinks around town.  Here are a few places that we recommend.

Visiting Killarney Brewing Company

Killarney Brewing Company

We always love to find the best eats and drinks in the towns we travel to.  Before arriving I thought for sure that Ireland would mostly serve major Irish labels in their local bars.   After a little research we found out we were very wrong.  Most towns had at least one local brewery.  One of our favorite was in Killarney, Ireland named Killarney Brewing Company.

How to Pick the best AirBnb for your Trip

typorama(7)

During our travels we tend to stay in a lot of AirBnB rentals.  This is not the only way we have booked stays, hostels, hotels, sleeper trains and more are all options for choosing a place to sleep at night.  But with AirBnb and another home rentals we have found some gems making our trip even more memorable, even staying on a boat in Paris!  The ease of having all of our places booked through the same site makes communication easier and we have always had an enjoyable experience.  While searching where to stay we always have had some things we consider each time.

5 Things to do in La Fortuna

4C9047FF-AA8E-422C-9BB4-D5AB535351B0As mentioned in my post before we got to spend our honeymoon at Nayara Resort in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.  Although the resort offers more than enough, we wanted to make sure we saw the town of La Fortuna and  more of the rain forest than directly on our resort.  We were lucky enough to book with Nayara at a package deal, so a few excursions were included but we also added on a few more. Although we booked most of these through out resort they are all options that can be booked on your own as well.

Nayara Resort Spa & Gardens

The next few posts will be about our time at Nayara Resort in Costa Rica.  Today I will be reminiscing about the food and drink options on the resort.  When picking out a place to enjoy our honeymoon we were reluctant to choose a typical all inclusive or cruise.  We like to move around when we travel and see as much as we can.  But we also knew that the two months before our wedding we were going to be more than busy (buying a house, planning our wedding and spending two weeks in Europe the attend the Euro Cup,) we thought might want to schedule in some time for relaxation.

One day on the Ring of Kerry Itinerary

IMG_3764(1)

During our recent trip to Ireland we decided to take on the task of completing the Ring of Kerry in one day. There are so many stops and sights to take in so we had to narrow it down to our must see views.  I love using Google My Maps to help keep track of what locations peak our interest and then plan out a course and time frame from there.  When planning out your own trip I would make sure you leave time for some stops you might not expect.  Ireland is full of places you want to pull off the side of the road and admire the country’s beauty.

Where to Eat on Sanibel Island

When I first met my husband I have never heard of Sanibel Island, Florida.  But he always talked of memories on the island as he had spent countless summers and holidays there staying at his grandfather’s condo.  One summer we got a few friends together and I took my first trip there, I was amazed, not anything like the crowded tourist filled piers and beaches that I was used to growing up.  Since then I have convinced him to take me back several more times.  We typically love to be our own chefs, but we usually try to make an effort to eat at new place each time we are visiting. After many visits to Sanibel Island I thought I would put together a list for you of places to eat at on the island.  Here is a list of our favorite eats (in no particular order):
