Bloom Festival – June Bank Holiday

Remember when I said I was going to Bloom a couple of weeks ago? I’m finally getting a chance to clear the photos off my camera and chat about how it went. To be honest, I really went for the food element as it is run by Bord Bia but have to say I was…

Connemara, Co. Galway

Oh Where Is My Teaspoon – how I’ve missed you! I don’t know about you guys but I am having such a bad week. I’ve just come back off my holidays to Connemara and am playing catch up at work which doesn’t feel like it’s going well, and on top of that my Cambridge bicycle…

The rise and fall of a favourite cafe

  Nothing can beat your favourite cafe, right? You know just what to order, what time to go in at and can identify the flavour of their coffee anywhere.

Brother Hubbard South, Portobello, Dublin

Have you summered well?

We are talking Back to Basics this month on Where Is My Teaspoon. Eating whippy cones (99s) is one of my all timeΒ things to do in Summer and they are something so basic but oh so good. I’ve told you before that eating a whippy cone in Hyde Park is one of my all time…

Pudding Row, Easkey.

You know what I love? I absolutely love finding something so perfect in such a rural place because it makes me feel that things can be created outside cities and not everything needs to be on the busiest street with the most expensive prices to work. I have this thing about small cottages by the…
