Cahir Castle Visitor’s Guide

One of the largest castles in Ireland, the Cahir Castle is also one of the prettiest. One of the things we loved the most about this castle is the lack of crowds.  It isn’t as notorious with tourists as some of Ireland’s other castles (the Rock of Cashel is just 30 minutes away), so you rarely have to battle large crowds to get access to parts of the castle or have to wait for people to clear to get good pictures.

Belfast Visitor’s Guide

Until I visited Belfast, I didn’t truly realize just how amazing the city really is.  It is a city that is steeped in history, and so much of that history can still be explored.  When I visited, I felt like I was taking a trip back in time thru some of Europe’s most historical moments.  This is one of the things that makes the city of Belfast so special.
